Support for foundersThe Start-up Office deals with company start-ups that result from university(-related) projects and initiatives. The following measures are in place: Founders' consultation, Founders' Café; Lectures on entrepreneurship, Lions' Den lecture hall; Start-up coaching, set-up of network of contacts; Support for funding applications. Furthermore, the specialisation module Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Management offers students (enrolled in Business Administration) specialist insights into the "Implementation of Business Models".
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsApart from measures that concern practical aspects, such as barrier-free access to all floors (lift), signal amplifiers in lecture halls, especially for the hearing-impaired, and special parking on the parking deck, students have access to a representative for disabilities who provides intensive and individual support for students' requirements and problems.
Characteristics of diversity advancementOur faculty is characterised by cultural diversity. The high number of foreign programme students in International Management (BA) and International Business and Finance (MA) degree courses, as well as approx. 50 foreign guest students per semester lead to a colourful campus life. Good English is the basis of our communication; however, many of our German students speak other foreign languages in addition to English. Team projects benefit from this cultural diversity. Often our foreign guests find a qualified job working in Germany after the course.
Other special featuresThe department has developed a sophisticated quality management system: Each class of each programme elects a class speaker who meets regularly with the dean of students. Once a semester, the class speakers and student representatives organise a departmental quality workshop. The results have been updated in a continuous time series and analysed critically for many years. The departmental magazine gP Business, published in German and English twice a year, serves the internal communication with students.
