SBE alumna and IATA intern Caroline Larisch finds her passion in air cargo

While doing her masters in Global Supply Chain Management and Change at SBE’s Venlo campus, Caroline Larisch didn’t learn much about Air Cargo, but out of curiosity for the industry, she applied for the cargo internship at the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the trade association for the world’s airlines. IATA represents some 280 airlines or 83% of total air traffic, and supports many areas of aviation activity and helps formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues. As IATA’s cargo intern, Larisch has over the last year found her passion in the aviation cargo industry.
