Bronwyn Farr

Head of Undergraduate Recruitment

I am originally from the beautiful Pacific Northwest of Canada. I graduated with my BSc in Mathematics before moving to the UK to complete my MSc in Management and Marketing. I lived in the UK for ten years where I worked within Higher Education, spending time in Wales, London and Scotland before ending up here in Bremen, Germany.

I love the work I do, as it allows me the opportunity to not only travel but also meet and spend time with people from around the world, both in and out of the office. When I'm not working, I enjoy swimming, paddle boarding, and going for long countryside walks.

Languages I speak: English, intermediate German and French, and beginners Japanese.

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”).

Ekaterina Marsanova

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.
