During her studies, she received the “Deutschlandstipendium”. She previously gained practical experience as an intern at BMW and PwC and as a working student at Infineon Technologies and Gibson Dunn.

In her research, Theresa Weitz focuses on the influence of information, emotions, and values on decisions and how companies and leaders can engage in strategic employee development and how this affects employees' loyalty to the company.
