The scholarship of excellence according to the Study Support Act (StudFG) serves to recognize outstanding academic achievements and is offered once a year for students and graduates. The Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research has provided our Department of Business & Management (with the Bachelor programs Wirtschaft & Management for Professionals and Business & Management as well as the Master program International Business & Management) with € 29,250 for this purpose.
113 students and graduates have applied. We are happy with 39 persons, who will receive € 750,- in the next days. € 750,- are a bit more than the tuition fees for one year, so you can think that the newly awarded students or graduates have studied with us for one year for free, but not for nothing.
All achievements in the academic year 2021/2022 are taken into account. This means that all 60 ECTS, which comprise the curriculum of the respective study plan in the winter semester 2021/22 and in the summer semester 2022, must be completed.
So what are the requirements to receive such a merit scholarship?
We are delighted with the top performers in our department and look forward to celebrating their outstanding academic achievements with them. They are wonderful multipliers of our three study programs. With their knowledge, which they bring into the study program but also carry outwards, they make others curious and awaken in a talented and motivated social environment the desire to study with us: be it in the Bachelor programs Business & Management or Wirtschaft & Management for Professionals but also in the Master program International Business & Management. And if we continue to have such fabulous students and graduates, studying and teaching at the Department of Business & Management will be great fun for everyone – including fellow students and especially the professors.
We are very happy with our excellent students. © MCI/Janina Platt
