|German term or phrase: der promovierte Diplom Kaufmann, ...|
|A new employee is being introduced in an internal company newsletter. His name and new position (kaufmaennischer Geschaeftsfuehrer - commercial manager?) has already been given. Now we have: "Der promovierte Diplom Kaufmann war zuletzt fuer die Schmidt (fictional name of company) Beteiligungs-Holding im private equity-Geschaeft taetig." I know that a promovierte Diplom Kaufmann is a person with a doctorate in business. How should I cast this sentence?|
|doctorate in business administration|
Actually, both his academic degrees are being cited here - you might say s.th. like,
[name], who holds both a masters' degree and a doctorate in business administration...
However - if he did not get his PhD in business administration (and I can't tell from the "promovierter Dipl. Kaufmann"), you may need to rephrase along these lines:
[name], PhD, who also holds a masters' degree in business adminstration...
[name], who holds a doctorate in [whatever] and a masters' degree ...
(Pw) master's degree in business administration
For kaufmänn. Geschäftsführer, you might try s.th. like general manager. See what Schäfer has to offer on Geschäftsführer.
(com, roughly) (general) manager
– chief executive
– chief operating officer
(ie, i.w.S. Mitglieder e–s Organs, die oberste Leitungsfunktionen wahrnehmen, also die Mitglieder des Vorstands bei der AG ebenso wie die geschäftsführenden Gesellschafter bei OHG und KG; im technischen Sinne bezeichnet der Terminus den od die Geschäftsführer der GmbH; in englischen Texten bleibt er dann häufig unübersetzt: Geschaeftsfuehrer)
(com) store manager
