Antje Rikker - CEPA Director of Marketing

Antje was born in Leipzig, Germany and she has been passionate about sports her whole life. By working hard to reach her personal goals, she understood very early that you have to step out of your comfort zone, overcome fears, and constantly face new challenges in order to be successful.

She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with an academic focus on destination and event management from the University of Applied Sciences in Kempten, Germany. During her studies, she took advantage of the opportunity to study abroad in Alta, Norway, which is the northernmost university in Europe. Through this experience, she grew personally and academically, and learned to integrate in a very different academic system and culture.

After working in the event management field for 4 years, she joined the CEPA marketing team in 2005. Currently as Director of Marketing, she maintains, develops, and implements new strategies for increasing CEPA’s brand awareness in the education abroad field. Additionally, she contributes her expertise in a voluntary capacity for two not-for-profit organizations.

Her native language is German and she is equally fluent in English.

“Life is a mountain not a beach!
Always believe in what you can do and even if you fail sometimes, be inspired and try again.”
