The challenge: tough. The prize: huge.There are some things you have to experience yourself to understand.

What might your assignments look like? Here is one example:
Where I come from:
I studied Business Administration with a major in accounting in France and worked for six years as a Financial and Operational Auditor in France, Luxembourg, and the UK.
Pursuing an MBA was a way for me to leap into leadership roles. The Finance Excellence Program is the perfect continuation and is helping me to get there!
How the Finance Excellence Program supports me on this path:
In the first of my three assignments, I am a project lead supporting the international expansion of Comfy. This has been a captivating experience that enabled me to learn about a new business model, namely Software as a Service (SaaS), while understanding how Siemens integrates these new models into the core activities of its Smart Infrastructure Business.
