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?

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 future.

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 experiences.

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.
