During my many years at the university, I’ve got to love the green campus, the philosophy, and the people!

Paula Serrano Porta
I am originally from sunny Spain. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Art History and a Master’s Degree in Contemporary History.

North Africa, Middle East, U.S. and Canada
I am originally from a small city in New York, but I have lived in several places along the American east coast. I served in the U.S. Army and taught high school history for over a decade before moving my family to Bremen. I love that Jacobs gives me the opportunity to connect with people from around the world. When I am not recruiting, I enjoy playing with my kids and watching or playing soccer (I mean “football”).
I am the regional manager for North Africa, Middle East, U.S. and Canada. Applicants and counselors from these regions, feel free to contact me.

China, Latin America and the Caribbean
I am from Nicaragua, the fascinating land of lakes and volcanoes. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business Administration and a Master’s Degree in Human Resources.
I am passionate about collecting memories, learning from other cultures, being in contact with nature, and photography. When I am not recruiting I am most probably traveling around or watching documentaries/movies about traditions, food, and people from other countries around the globe.

Partner Management & Development Coordinator
I am originally from Russia, Moscow. In 2009 I did a semester abroad in Bremen. Turns out this was the best decision I have ever made and now I have both a German and a Russian degree. I always liked being involved in university and student life and now I am happy to continue my passion at Jacobs University. Being on the road and meeting our partners who are now friends, and seeing young ambitious students and their parents makes me happy, and it makes these days unforgettable. If I am not traveling you most likely find me in a football stadium or watching football on TV, catching up with my friends or doing sports, reading a nice book, or watching cat videos on YouTube.
I am the Partner Management & Development Coordinator in charge of Educational Partners from all over the world, so feel free to contact me with your questions.
