High proportion of women students

This week students of the 12th full-time MBA year of GISMA Business School have begun their studies in Hanover.

55 students from almost 20 different countries have come to Lower Saxony to complete their graduate studies with the Master of Business Administration (MBA).

After just an eleven-month study period the participants will be awarded both the American MBA qualification given by Purdue University as well as the German title from the Leibniz University, Hannover.

What is particularly noticeable this year is the large proportion of women, namely 42%. In addition, there are many students with a first degree in engineering and sciences.

Traditionally studies at GISMA begin with a round of introductions during which all the participants tell something about their previous qualifications and career experience.

Private aspects are also briefly mentioned. Thus the students got to know among other things about the particular challenges of two of their female colleagues: the 34-year-old Megan from USA has come to Hanover with her four children to strike out on a new professional direction with her MBA studies.

And a young Pakistani lady had taken her passport and visa into the office by chance a few days before departing for Germany in order to make copies – it was the day on which her home went under in the floods.

Facts and figures about this full-time MBA year:

Participants: 55 (42% female; 58% male)

Geographical distribution: Europe 19%
Asia 40%
North America 35%
South America 4%
Oceania 2%
Average age: 28.2 years
Average professional experience: 5.3 years
First degrees:
Engineering and Sciences 44%
Economics 32%
Humanities 24%

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
