Alexander Meyer auf der Heyde (41) heads the Bayer Group's internal management consultancy. He first studied biology at the University of Tübingen and began his career in basic research at the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen. At Accenture, he was responsible for management consulting in the Pharmaceuticals & Medical Products division as a partner in India and then China. Meyer auf der Heyde received his MBA from the European School of Business Reutlingen.

Firefighter, locomotive driver or doctor, these are the dream jobs of many children: What did you want to be when you were young?
My dream job changed over time, which probably applies to most people. Towards the end of my school days, I wanted to do basic research, so I decided to study biology. I only remained loyal to research for a short time, but I never regretted having studied what I was most interested in - even if I have very little to do with biology today.

Which decision did you make the most for your career?
I took up the offer of a former employer and went to India. Then I took a position in China. From a private perspective and from a career perspective, these two decisions were certainly the best.

Why did you choose an MBA?
At the beginning of my career, I realized that I didn't want to stay in basic research in the long term. In conversations with acquaintances and representatives of the industry, I then tried to answer the question of whether I should prefer to do a doctorate to start in the pharmaceutical industry or do additional economic training. The answer was pretty clear. So I decided to do an MBA.

Have there been moments when you have had doubts about this decision?
No, I have never regretted this decision.

How do you deal with setbacks?
Of course it always says quite simply that you have to learn from it. From my point of view, the hardest thing is to accept a setback first and not only to look for the mistake in others or in the framework. Once you have done that, you have to look ahead.

The MBA is one of the most expensive training courses. Did this investment pay off?
MBAs differ in part considerably in terms of costs. The investment was worth it for my situation. However, all those who are faced with such a decision should think carefully about what they are intended to do. And they should consider whether what they want to achieve with the MBA is in line with the personal and financial effort.

What have you learned from your MBA for life and not for your job?
A very valuable aspect was to exchange ideas with students from different countries. I had the opportunity to look at global issues from a variety of angles. Doing that and also getting to know cultural backgrounds for different perspectives was a very enriching experience.

Which role models are you based on?
I think a lot about people who have managed to make an outstanding career without having put themselves in the foreground. Most of these are managers who care more about the development of their own employees than their own.

When do you advise academics to get an MBA?
In my view, there are two main reasons to choose an MBA: either to add a non-economic background or a commercial component. Or to build or expand an international network. The latter, however, depends very much on the MBA school and on the individual ability to maintain and use such a network with great personal commitment.
