13.11.2019 „Master of Business Administration“ – a useful career move for academics?

MBA-programmes are often seen as an accelerator for a career in business. But it can be worth for academics to consider an MBA as well. On the one hand research institutions act more and more like companies. On the other hand an MBA can provide scientists with important competencies to start a career outside university. Tobias Koch, member of staff at the HHU media center, alumnus of the Düsseldorf Business School (DBS) and representative of the DBS alumni group, will give an insight into on exemplary MBA curriculum and the impact of an MBA on potential career moves.

This HeRA Lunch Session takes place in building 16.11. Meeting room 2, 1st floor, in English.

The key to success in science lies among other things also in diversity. Diversity means an increase in different experiences, skills, ideas and solution approaches for cooperation in science and at the university. Diversity at the HHU stands for the diversity of attitudes and perspectives that result from individual personal characteristics and lifestyles (= dimensions). Dr. Inge Krümpelbeck from the HHU Diversity Coordination Office discusses how diversity can also become a success criterion in her working group.

This HeRA Lunch Session will be held in German. It takes place in building 21.02 (SSC) in room 30.

15.01.2020 Open Access: Publishing and financing

Open Access publications are increasingly present due to corresponding specifications from research funding agencies and not least due to the so-called DEAL with Wiley. The ongoing transformation of the scientific publishing system has a considerable impact on the financing of publications. The university library briefly presents the principle of Open Access and points out some ways of financing publications with the support of the library.

This HeRA-Lunch session takes place in building N.N. in English.
