Skills for Careers in Business and Society
Certificate Programme of the NRW Universities
The NRW certification program is geared toward giving researchers the skills they need for jobs outside a university setting. This includes working in business and society but also at universities of applied sciences and non-university research organizations.
The programme is intended to give academic staff career orientation and make them aware of the competencies they have acquired in the course of their academic work. The acquisition of key competencies in the areas of leadership, management, communication and methodologies and successful self-marketing support the transfer to business and society.
The programme is primarily aimed at postdocs who would like to work in business and society after employment at HHU. Currently the programme is available in German only. However, we work on establishing an English-speaking programme as well.
