US ambassador visits the University of Liechtenstein

US Ambassador Scott C. Miller and 22 of his staff from Bern visited Liechtenstein for a two-day stay to set up a pop-up embassy. During their stay, they visited various institutions in the country, including the University of Liechtenstein.

At the Ambassador's request, a roundtable was held with students from various business degree programs as well as the Rector Dr. Christian Frommelt and Prof. Dr. Martin Angerer. The focus of Scott C. Miller was interested in the students and wanted to know why they were studying in Liechtenstein and what they hoped to achieve in (professional) life. The students had the opportunity to ask the ambassador questions and learned, among other things, how his career as a banker started and how his work as an LGBT activist brought him to the attention of President Joe Biden, which ultimately led to his "once in a million lifetimes" job offer as US ambassador to Switzerland.

The ambassador encouraged the young students to follow their intuition. Sometimes the smartest decisions come from intuition and not from meticulous planning. His openness made a great impression on the students.
