“Choosing to do an MBA was a big decision,” says Anas Darkoushy in an interview with the US online magazine Poets & Quants. “But it was only the first of many big decisions to follow.” In 2015, Anas Darkoushy fled Syria and moved to Mannheim. In 2018, alongside his job at Hessische Landesbank, he took up part-time MBA programme at Frankfurt School, which he successfully completed two years later. “I always wanted to be a student at one of the best schools, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management,” the FS alum says.
How did the decision to flee Syria and move to Germany come about? Why decide to do a part-time MBA at Frankfurt School? To what extent did his studies influence his career path? Anas Darkoushy, who now works as an IT-Service Specialist at WIBank (Helaba Bank), answers these and other questions in the interview.
