Born in Stuttgart. After dropping out of high school, he attended the commercial vocational college in Nagold, took an exam at the dual university in Stuttgart in the first year and initially applied for dual courses in tax consulting. In the second year of the vocational college, he also took the delta exam of the University of Mannheim and was the only one of his class to be able to study at a university despite having the entrance qualification for a technical college. For economics (B.Sc) with a focus on human resources at the University of Hohenheim, he initially moved back to Stuttgart. For the master’s degree in economics (M.Sc.) at the University of Bielefeld, he moved to North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 2022, he has been a member of the Young Professional Network (YPN) of the German Society for Human Resource Management (DGFP). After his master’s degree, Tom Stephan would like to do a doctorate in the field of human resource management. Main interests are self-actualization at work, new work & work-life balance. He is open for joint projects all over Germany.
