LUKAS STEINER

Cycling from Zürich to Capetown

I am Lukas Steiner, born September 8th 1993 in Zürich, Switzerland. After finishing high-school and my military service as a Grenadier in Isone, I did my Bachelor in Business Administration (2017) at the University of St. Gallen and later on decided to take two gap years between my Bachelor and Master studies. I did two internships during the first year at UBS and BOSCH, and the second year was reserved for my trip. This fall I started my Masters in Management, Organization and Culture (MOK) at HSG again as well as working part time for an M&A advisor in Zurich. My interests cover many areas, I love to go hiking, cycling, fishing as well as having cosy nights reading a book and drinking a glass of wine.

JUAN ANDRADE

Human Branding

I recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration here at the HSG. I am Swiss and Ecuadorian, thus my not-so-bünzli name.

I have a great interest for technology, although I am not particularly talented with its use. That's why I enjoy reading about it and watching movies where it is heavily involved or at least present. In that sense, my favourite genre is Science Fiction. It asks the reader to reflect on the future and our role in or impact on it. It allows us to wonder and to dream about what might be, but also to contemplate where we want to go.
