Working with customers, suppliers and modern information technology characterise the job description of an industrial business management specialist. One focus is on sales and materials management with the areas of purchasing, logistics and sales. Other areas include accounting and human resources. Different tasks and challenges await me each day. My three-year apprenticeship takes place in the company and at the vocational school.

Vocational school classes take place 1-2 days a week or as block classes.
