Kati’s a British Council Alumni Award finalist

NTU alumna Kati Schmidt (BA Hons Politics; 2006) has been shortlisted as a finalist in the British Council Alumni Awards for 2018.

Kati, who is a contender in the Professional Achievement award category in the USA, studied Politics at Nottingham Trent as part of an exchange programme from the University of Munster in Germany.

Of her time at NTU Katrin says that ‘studying in the UK as an international student and living abroad for an extended period of time for the very first time shaped me as the global citizen I have now become’. She continues that ‘upon my arrival in the UK, I immediately became a member of NTU’s International Student Society and house-shared with students from all around the world. The fruitful and eye-opening exchange has had a significant impact on my view of the world.’

She is now based in California, and currently works as a start-up mentor on German Accelerator Tech, aiding German technology start-ups to enter the US market. Previously she worked for Airbnb for six years, eventually moving to their headquarters, where she managed strategic partnerships for the global public policy team, and became the Senior Business Affairs Manager for Airbnb’s Trips team.

Find out more about Kati by reading her alumni profile.

The final winners will be announced at a national ceremony in Washington DC on Monday 26 March 2018. Best of luck Kati!
