The creation of totally new academic fields.
  • Didactics
    Academics must fulfill a variety of requirements as teachers. These range from transferring subject-related or methodological knowledge, supervising students, and exam assessments, through to providing individual counseling to degree and doctoral candidates. Let us help you expand your teaching abilities!
  • Communication and cooperation
    Academics are required to work together in different manners. New constellations focused on fresh perspectives and projects, require them to work internationally and in an interdisciplinary and intersectoral way. Success in managing diverse teams and complex structures lies in strong communication and cooperation skills.

    Throughout their career journey, academics are required to draw on their supervisory and leadership skills. This enables them to build diverse management competence. Let us help you develop yourself further with our range of carefully structured qualification opportunities.
