Connect with your Admissions Counselor

Hi there, I’m Ryan Mrowka and I am the Regional Manager for Jacobs University’s recruitment activities in 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”).
