Department of Management Sciences

Advisory Board of the Department

The close cooperation between companies and the department of Management Sciences is one of the essential success factors for the strategic orientation of Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences.

In order to intensify this cooperation an advisory board was founded following a decision by the departmental council in November 2010. It is the aim of the advisory board to build a continuous and active bridge between theory and practice. Closer cooperation is planned in research projects, student research projects, placement of trainees and guest lectures. In addition the advisory board serves as a platform for periodic exchanges of experts on the analysis and possible development of teaching contents in the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes.

So far, a wide range of issues have been discussed in the meetings of the advisory board, such as lectures held in English, the companies’ future demand for training and further education and joint research projects.   

The advisory board consists of eight company representatives and three university representatives from the Department of Management Sciences. The members of the companies include representatives of Deutsche Telekom AG, Ford Werke GmbH, Deutsche Post DHL Group, Reifenhauser-Group, Haribo GmbH, Bechtle, Eaton and Go! Express and Logistics.
