Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am from the Czech Republic (Czechia), located in central Europe, and I currently live in its capital city, Prague. Originally I come from the north of Czechia, which borders Germany, and I moved to Prague to study at the University of Economics, where I am now finishing my master’s degree in corporate finance. Before joining NC State, I studied in Austria for one semester, for which I had to leave my previous position as a junior accountant at Computer Sciences Corporation.
How long have you been with NC State and the Office of Global Engagement?
After returning from my studies abroad in Austria last year, I started to look for a new job. At first, I wanted to work for one of the Big Four accounting firms, but after having an interview at NC State Prague, I was absolutely charmed by the institution and I decided to join the university instead.
