Lars Zimmermann, M.A., MBA
After working for over seven years in the education industry, Academic Embassy's founder and managing director, Lars Zimmermann, decided to establish a recruiting agency specializing in higher education, undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and PhD programs, adhering to the highest standards.
An exchange student in several stages of his life, milestones of Lars' experiences abroad include a language program in Florida, a high-school year in Idaho, two semesters at a Kalamazoo College in Michigan, work & travel in British Columbia, and a language program at the University of Salamanca (Spain).
Being influenced by his first endeavors, Lars enrolled in University of Bonn's North American Studies program from where he graduated with a master's. After several years in the education industry he decided to earn his MBA with a focus on strategic management, which he concluded with a thesis about the impact of social media in student recruitment.
