Open for Opportunities
One of the things that Enderun Colleges prides itself in is the international community within its campus. Mentors and learners alike comprise the culturally diverse population, bringing together people from different cultural backgrounds in a unified learning environment. Possessing such a quality encourages sensible understanding between different cultures, and open-mindedness among those involved in the society.
The school welcomed a new member of the Enderun College of Business and Entrepreneurship faculty, Matthias Pucklitzsch. Also a faculty administrator at German European School Manila, Pucklitzsch joined Enderun upon the recommendation of his colleagues. He has been teaching in the college since June of last year, revealing that it was his first time to teach Filipino students. Nevertheless, he appreciates the international atmosphere in the campus, and commends the cleverness of Enderun students.
He studied Business Administration and majored in International Management and Financial Services.
He noted that he learned many skills mainly from experience, “Learning by doing, just trying it out. I tried this, I tried that, and it really gave me a good basis for what I want to do.” Nevertheless, educational skills are essential. In the case of a business career, he says, “you have to be good in math, but you must understand the meaning behind it. You have to continuously educate yourself.” The keen sense to learn more should not only be applied by students. Learning doesn’t stop in school, and in fact, there is
much more to learn outside of theory.
It is also important to be aware that as you advance in your career, there are more responsibilities to pursue. He revealed that because of these responsibilities, certain aspects of his life changed. As he advanced in his career, his lifestyle improved. On the other hand, he has less time to spend for himself. When he finally has the time for himself, he is compelled to make the most out of it.
Pucklitzsch aims for more opportunities in his career. He advises students to “keep an open mind so that you see opportunities, [so that] you know where to go.”
