Career: “Many women don’t want management positions” – Munich

The most important decision for a woman’s career is made at the very beginning: with her first promotion – says economist Ingrid Hägele. A conversation about quotas for women, willingness to take risks and the “glass ceiling”.

It was a teacher at her high school who sparked Ingrid Hägele’s enthusiasm for business. It continues to this day. Born and raised in Baden-Württemberg, Hägele studied economics in Tübingen and at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich. After that she went to the USA for seven years. She received her PhD from the University of Berkeley. Now she is an assistant professor of economics at the LMU. Teaching there is mainly in English. The 32-year-old recently received the Max Weber Prize from the Bavarian Academy of Sciences for her doctoral thesis, which deals with talent promotion and wage structures in companies.
