I hold a Master in Business Administration from Zurich University of Applied Sciences and a M.A. in Literature and Media sciences from University of Basel.   I’ve also taken Seminars for Business Journalist at Wharton Business School in Philadelphia. 

I’ve received a postgraduate certificate of advanced studies in Business Communication and Management from University of St. Gallen.

Recently I’ve attended a course in data journalism/data science which involved following topics: Python, Unix Command Line, Github, Scraper-Libraries, BeautifulSoup, Pandas, Selenium, matplotlib, Regular Expressions, Stackoverflow, Natural Language Processing
