High proportion of women students

01.09.2010
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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
