Initially, it might seem like a daring plan: Students at the Business School Alb-Schwarzwald, a part of Steinbeis University Berlin, would like to host a "Business Rendezvous" on January 26th, 2013. The chosen venue: the former Capuchin monastery in Rottweil, now a popular events center. They don’t want to keep to themselves, but rather plan to invite an extensive guest list from regional businesses to this historical setting.
As part of the event program, nearly 50 students and alumni will present themselves and their businesses. The aim? To open lines of communication between the guests and participants. But that’s not all. A special planning team took several weeks to develop concepts for an appealing event designed to accommodate as many guests as possible. Rottweil’s mayor was particularly impressed by the professionalism and creativity the planners brought into the planning process: “Quality education that meets exceptionally high standards is an important location factor. We are very pleased that future-oriented study programs are on offer in the oldest city in Baden-Wuerttemberg – and that this ‘Business Rendezvous’ will emphasize the potential of our students.” Despite many other German Carnival-related commitments, he promised to give some opening remarks. Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. mult. Johann Löhn, president of Steinbeis University Berlin, will be the day’s keynote speaker. Prof. Dr. Werner Mezger will also speak at the event. He has the chair of European Ethnology at the University of Freiburg and will address the topic: “Europe and the Euro Crisis: What Economists Haven’t Thoroughly Considered.” In addition, Hans-Jörg Bley, marketing director at the company Interstuhl in Meßstetten-Tieringen, will talk about his experiences in a brief presentation. But the students will also get a chance to contribute. “Most of us are already experts in our own field,” says master’s student Andrea Weigold. In her primary job, she manages the branch of a company herself. “During my studies for my bachelor’s degree, I concentrated mainly on the way companies deal with new recruits. That’s why I will be available at the ‘Business Rendezvous’ to answer any question guests might have about this topic.” Engelberd Leib, director of the association for health care for the county of Rottweil (Betreuungsverein Landkreis Rottweil e.V.) and also a student of the Business School, will be on hand to answer questions about health care proxy, legal council, and living wills. These two examples highlight the broad spectrum of topics that will be covered by the event.
Steinbeis Transfer Institute Business School Alb-Schwarzwald (Berlin/Gosheim)
The Steinbeis Technology Group, a Steinbeis University Berlin (SHB) school, will introduce a new study program in the coming year. Together with training provider TRAINICO, they will be offering a program for a Bachelor of Engineering with a major in Aviation Engineering. Students will take classes at the SHB Study and Research Center at the TRAINICO Campus Wildau and in Berlin- Schönefeld.
TRAINICO is Germany’s leading expert in further education and training (and retraining) in the aerospace field. The company is licensed to offer study programs in line with EASA Part 66, and is thus an accredited examination institution. The collaboration was officially ushered in at an opening ceremony celebrating the dedication of the new TRAINICO campus on the former grounds of the University of Applied Sciences in Wildau. The first collaborative project will be the extra-occupational bachelor’s degree with a major in aviation engineering. The new SHB Study and Research Center was dedicated by Wolfgang Clement, federal minister of economics and employment a. D., together with TRAINICO director Jürgen Grau and Professor Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Günther, director of the Steinbeis Technology Group. It was the symbolic inauguration of the study program.
The study program will include a closer look at what types of technical aerospace companies exist and how they operate (Part 21, CAMO and Part 145, operation). It will also cover select fundamentals of becoming a licensed business in the field, in addition to management techniques applied within the aerospace industry.
