Communication, Languages, Curiosity, Wanderlust


Andrea Ursula Wolf has been working as Head of International Relations and Lecturer for Intercultural Management and Communication at Westphalian Applied University of Gelsenkirchen for about 30 years.

Today, she works as a freelancer, coaching young people and students for international studies and intercultural skills and she also works in the dubbing industry in film and media.

She grew up in central Germany and went to the Universities of Osnabrueck and Southampton for her studies in Literature and Linguistics in English and French which she pursued for the academic title of “Magister Artium”. She also studied a Bachelor´s programme in Public Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences at Dortmund.

Her first professional challenge was to work as a project leader for a start-up enterprise at München, the launch of the first generation of computer-based learning software for children and adult education. She returned to the central part of Germany to work as Head of International Relations for the newly- founded University of Applied Sciences Gelsenkirchen.

This responsible and challenging position meant being in charge of the development and pursuit of an international marketing strategy for this university, the negotiation of new and lasting international partnerships as well as networking at the European Union Programmes´ unit.

In 2014, a professional challenge opened up yet new horizons: The university offered her the chance to work a lecturer for intercultural communication and management in several German and international study programmes, giving students the chance to profit from her international experience in negotiating and communicating interculturally.
