In un periodo di costante e continuo cambiamento, flessibilità e capacità di adattamento sono due elementi fondamentali. Il contesto trilingue in cui si sviluppa questo corso di laurea e la possibilità di trascorrere periodi di studio e di tirocinio all’estero mi hanno aiutato a sviluppare queste ed altre competenze in maniera efficace, arricchendo il mio curriculum non solo di nozioni teoriche. Ho avuto la possibilità di trascorrere un semestre in Nuova Zelanda come tirocinante presso un tour operator, e di partecipare ad eventi sia interni che esterni al contesto universitario tra Brunico, Bolzano e Berlino. Sul mercato del lavoro sono stato ben recepito e sono convinto che la formazione ricevuta presso la unibz rappresenti un ottimo biglietto da visita sia in Italia che all’estero.
