Tünde, take us back to your early life and how you found the path to a career in HR?
I studied for my masters at Corvinus University of Budapest, the leading university in Hungary for Economics, Management and Social Sciences. I chose to major in management and organisation, because I wanted to keep my studies as broad as possible and we focused on financial controlling, business strategy and HR, which I started to get very interested in. Parallel to the main masters degree, I also did a second degree, the CEMS Masters in International Management and part of this involved placements at the world's leading business schools, which in my case was a semester spent at the University of Cologne in Germany. An element of this involved collaborating on real business projects with top tier companies and for me, this was with McKinsey.
