More ways to network

ALUMNI lectures

The Department of Economics has a broad network of ALUMNI around the world. In the ALUMNI lectures, former students of the department present their current career fields and the way to get there. Again, there is the chance to ask questions and to get in touch after the lecture.

Guest lectures

In numerous modules, guest lectures are offered that link the course content with practice or practical topics.

Take the opportunity to ask your questions and get in touch with the lecturers.

Contacts of the lecturers

The lecturers in the department are well networked and maintain contacts not only with scientists but also with companies, authorities and politicians. Internships have often already been arranged through these contacts.
