The Europe of different speeds. If it were up to EAB management accountant Karin Schwettmann to decide which of the EU integration models ought to be pursued – then surely it would be this one. Because Karin herself is always on the move. When she was as young as 15 years old she was playing field hockey in the German Youth national team. Later she tackled several nightschool study courses, ran her own firms and checked the accounts for other companies. In the Academy she is responsible for accounting entries for takings, for outgoing payment transactions and for the annual statements of accounts.
