Career Impulse Session (Dec 13, 2019) with Dr. Benjamin Wilhelm (Stonehaven Consulting): “From Science to Strategy Consulting”


We are happy to invite you to our next Career Impulse Session with Consultant Dr. Benjamin Wilhelm (Stonehaven Consulting): “From Science to Strategy Consulting”.

Ben is an Alumni of the Neuroscience Program and did his Master and PhD in the lab of Silvio Rizzoli investigating the molecular architecture of a pre-synaptic terminal. Following his graduation in 2013 he decided to leave Science and take an entire year off to explore the world with his backpack. Prior to the trip he had already secured a position with McKinsey to start as an Associate in their Hamburg Office upon his return. In 2017, after almost three years with McKinsey, he joined a Start-up Consulting company – Stonehaven Consulting – as a Partner and is enjoying his new role ever since. His talk will focus on his experiences during his time in Göttingen which ultimately allowed him to pursue a career as Strategy Consultant including a description of what that entails.
