Childhood dream come true: working for Ferrari

With a ‚double degree‘ from the School of Engineering in Wels to a job in Maranello

 

A dream of many. Only a few days ago Federica Coniglio (24) from Calabria, Italy successfully completed the double degree in Innovation and Product Management and Management Engineering at the School of Engineering in Wels, thus acquiring two academic qualifications in one degree program. And now her childhood dream has come true. She is working for Ferrari in Maranello in Sales Logistics for luxury cars.

 


‚In my work I coordinate the production process of Ferrari cars with regard to incoming orders. All employees have a close bond with the Ferrari brand and with the cars so they work very accurately to fulfil the expectations of the customers and the aims of the company. The working climate is very pleasant.’

Federica Coniglio studied for the international Master’s degree Innovation and Product Management last year. ‘ The university of Calabria suggested this double degree to me. I was immediately thrilled because it was an ideal opportunity to complete a further degree at a top university,’ says the Italian and adds: ‘Innovation Management and Product Management are vital for big companies so this degree gives me very good chances of promotion in the future.’

She wrote her Master’s thesis for the University of Applied Sciences in Upper Austria at the MAN Truck and Bus Company. She gained insight into the production at many different companies in case studies. ‘In my degree studies I had the opportunity to get to know many international students from all over the world and their cultures, ‘she enthuses. ‘An important experience for my whole life!’

 ‚I enjoyed my stay in Wels very much. There are many wonderful places and people are very friendly. The town is not so big so you can get to know all the international students and have many exciting experiences. Upper Austria is a beautiful part of the world with its various landscapes and sights.’
