Extracurricular course “Leadership & Responsibility – Case Studies in Business and Society"
Attending the MCI Alumni & Friends lecture series can also lead to the acquisition of ECTS points. By facilitating this, we look to ensure that participation in this unique university lecture series leads to appropriate academic recognition.
Consequently, it is planned that participation in 5 academic lecture events per semester will lead to 0.5 ECTS points and participation in 10 academic lecture events per semester to 1.0 ECTS points. One, or even several ECTS credits can be earned in the course of a degree program.
Depending on the degree program, credits may be possible for exceeding minimum attendance in relevant courses. Further information can be found on Sakai and in consultation with your respective degree program.
At the end of each semester, you will receive a certificate upon positive completion or participation.
