The final

Hello Everyone,

In this last post I’d like to give you all a final view of what the two years I spent at KLU were like. Let’s begin with what happened since I last wrote in March:

It's done

We managed to finish our dissertations. This involved a lot of late nights and many talks with the library team at KLU. Although initially the four months allotted seemed like a really long time, it all passed in a blur. By the end of August it felt like we had just finished our final classes in March. Nevertheless, we all worked hard and everyone seemed happy to turn in his or her work. Since then, we’ve had our graduation ceremony, but more on that later.

The KLU has flourished

As I am writing this, it’s clear to me that KLU has flourished in the last few months. For the second year students, now abroad at exchange universities, it’s their chance to experience different cultures, new universities and travel the world. See Ole & Elias’ blog for more details.

What about the new students?

For everyone else, it’s all about beginnings. The new generation, comprised of 99 students from about 23 nationalities, began school this September. Starting this year, 25 Bachelor students are also beginning their studies. Alongside them, the fourth class of Global Logistics and the third Management class are also getting to enjoy their first weeks as students at KLU. Good luck to them all!

New site in the HafenCity

For the new generation, one of the main reasons of excitement is the new KLU campus. The new site, located in HafenCity on Großer Grasbrook, shows that KLU is committed to the future development of academia in logistics. Professor Kühne, president of the Kühne Foundation, passed the golden key to KLU’s new president, Professor Thomas Strothotte on the September 13.

I have graduated!

On a more personal note, I have graduated! With our families and friends, as well as all the KLU professors present, we were presented with MS certificates in a spectacular ceremony in the new building. At the reception afterwards, we chatted for the last time with our professors and took memorable pictures.

So, what are the next steps?

Regarding our next steps: some of us started working immediately and some are still searching for their dream job. Some want to stay in Germany and some want to travel the world. No matter what the future holds, it was great to be together one last time at KLU. We’re all linked by our experiences in Hamburg and we’ll stay like this – thanks to the KLU Alumni Association, which we all belong to.

So this is the end. I’d like to thank you for reading my posts and encourage you to come back for Ole & Elias’ posts. I’m sure they’ll share many exciting things from their internships and studies abroad.

Would you choose the KLU again?

As for me, I can say without hesitation that I made the right decision when I chose KLU. I’m grateful for all the wonderful things I’ve had the chance to experience in the last two years – if I had the chance, I’d do it all again.

Thanks to everyone

To close this last post, I want to thank all my colleagues, professors and the KLU staff for all the moral and practical support they’ve been giving me. I expect to hear great things from everyone and hope the new generations will be just as proud to be part of this community as we were.

And to you, dear reader, the best of luck in making the right choices for your future!

Silvia Gheorghe, MS (this has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?)
