On September 27, 2022, we welcomed Henkel to our WHU campus in Düsseldorf for a company presentation and alumni panel talk followed by a networking event. After two years of corona-related virtual events, numerous students and Henkel representatives accepted the invitation of the MBA Career Center and the Henkel Center for Consumer Goods.
Miriam Kraneis from the MBA Career Center and Jun.-Prof. Dr. Anna-Karina Schmitz, Director of the Henkel Center for Consumer Goods, welcomed the students and the "Henkelaner". Joining them this time were:
Nina Dittmann, Executive Assistant to CEO
Dr. Nils Daecke, Corporate Vice President & DIO Beauty Care
Markus Krahforst, Head of Recruitment, DE
Petra Bochnovicova, HR Employer Reputation
Louis Markus, Beauty Care, Sales
Jessica Batista, Beauty Care, Marketing/Strategy
Kathrin Lampert, Adhesives, Strategy
Sergej Gutmann, Adhesives, Head of Sales DE/CH
Nina Dittmann began by giving the audience insights into the development of Henkel, illustrating the impressive success story and evolution from a family business to a global market leader. The Henkel representatives provided information about Henkel's corporate culture, corporate values and strategy, and attractive career opportunities. In the panel talk that followed, all Henkel managers spoke about their personal experiences and provided valuable insights into the varied working life at Henkel. Students also took the opportunity to ask individual questions during the networking session. A big thank you to the Henkel team for the exciting insights and to the MBA Career Center for organizing the successful event!
