BA Business Administration

Advisory Board

New Committee for Heilbronn's Leading Business Courses

Fachbeirat

The task of the Advisory Board will be to monitor, advise and support the development of the Business Administration course, and to raise the profile of the course outside the University. The members see the Board as a forum for discussion and exchange of views, and consider the transfer of knowledge between the University and the local business world as an important part of its work. "We need the Advisory Board to act as an ambassador for the degree and increase our visibility outside the University", said Dean of Studies Professor Dr. Ralf Dillerup, welcoming the formation of the Board.

Alumni in Action

The Board contains a number of graduates of the course who all described how the University allowed them to "blossom" and achieve their potential. Hartmut Fröhlich was one of the first graduates of the course, while alumnus Hansjörg Rölle of Kolbenschmidt Pierburg AG commented: "I am really committed to working on the Board: I have happy memories of my time at the University, and I'm looking forward to being able to give something back". Heilbronn City Council will also be supporting the initiative.

Fachbeirat

„The Business Administration course is a gem - and gems are valuable and have to be taken care of, otherwise their real value isn't recognised.“ (Peter Schweiker, Executive Director, Heilbronn Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Chairman of the new Advisory Board for Business Studies at Heilbronn University).
