INTERLOCKING THEORY AND PRACTICE

THIS IS HOW VARIED YOUR STUDIES WILL BE WITH US
The content of our lectures is strongly oriented towards practice. Many topics are explained using current examples and discussed with the students. This makes our lectures highly interactive.
Consolidating and deepening acquired skills - that's what the practical exercises are all about. For example, you will work on case studies together with other students and - with the support of your professor – learn how to solve tasks by yourselves.
In our seminars, you will learn how to apply scientific methods: On the basis of specialist literature, you will deal with a concrete topic in a well-founded manner and work on it in a seminar paper.
In our practical seminars, the focus is on theory-practice transfer. You will deal with concrete practical questions and apply the scientific know-how you have acquired.
In our practical projects, you will work on a practical issue in your company under the guidance of your professor. The respective problem will be developed together with your practice partner.
Using digital media such as videos, presentations or podcasts, you will independently acquire the content, which you will then deepen and apply in a practice-oriented manner in the subsequent phases. In this way, you will benefit from all the advantages of a classic face-to-face lecture as well as more flexibility, because you will be able to learn whenever, however and wherever you want!
