What do we expect from a graduate at the IAM?

First of all, it is important that you enjoy scientific work, i.e. that you want to study a topic in greater depth and that you are not afraid of books, specialist literature and academic articles. Scientific work requires solid literature research before you can start with the interviews or written surveys which make up your empirical work. You should enjoy this literature research, because this is the only way to be really good and successful.
