MBA INTERVIEW WITH BERND HEID, MCKINSEY: "INVESTING
IN YOUR PERSONAL FUTURE"
Bernd Heid (37) is a partner in McKinsey's Cologne
office. Before he started consulting, he studied
mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen. At the Kellogg
School of Management in Illinois, USA, he completed the
Business School's MBA program.
Firemen, locomotive drivers or doctors are
the dream jobs of many children: What did you want to be
when you were young? I always wanted to learn a technical profession
as a child. I have always loved motors, machines and
everything that moves.
Which decision did you make the most for your career? By choosing my current employer. Here I
primarily advise automobile manufacturers - from
commercial vehicles to sports cars - and suppliers
around the world. I feel that I am in the right place at
the interface between engineering and management.
Why did you choose an MBA? The MBA made it possible for me to supplement
my technical training with a solid commercial
background. At heart I am a mechanical engineer - the
MBA helps to mediate between the engineering and
commercial world with a real management perspective.
Have there been moments when you have had doubts about
this decision? No.
How do you deal with setbacks? Setbacks can also be valuable if you deal with
them constructively. Whether positive or negative: I try
to learn from every experience.
The MBA is one of the most expensive training
courses. Did this investment pay off? My MBA was part of my employer's entry-level
program. As a "Fellow" you are released in the third
year for a doctorate or an MBA and the MBA is supported
financially. But even if I should have financed the
program entirely privately, I would come to the same
conclusion: It is worth it, because you invest time and
money in your own skills - and thus in your personal
What have you learned from your MBA for life
and not for your job? In the United States I have made friends from
all over the world for life. We are now spread across
the globe again. It is a great feeling to have a global
network of friends in a wide variety of companies or to
simply know someone in every major city in the world
with whom you can meet for a coffee and share
Which role models are you based on? I am impressed by people who have found their
personal balance. People who realize themselves in their
job according to their ideas, who lead a full private
life - and who enjoy both.
When do you advise academics to get an MBA? On the one hand, the MBA is a useful training
for anyone who has a non-economic background and wants
to expand their qualification profile. On the other
hand, an international program changes your own
perspective: you learn to think globally and you can
build up a worldwide network.
