ESMT wins two Case Centre Awards 2014

03.03.2014

ESMT European School of Management and Technology has received two awards for case studies in the Case Centre Awards competition 2014.

Together with Harvard Business School and INSEAD, ESMT is one of only three business schools honored with two prizes this year. As one of the world’s largest provider of case studies, the Case Centre has recognized outstanding cases since 1991.

Business schools use case studies to demonstrate real business situations and to illustrate theoretical concepts in the classroom.

Dr. Urs Müller and Shirish Pandit, program directors at ESMT, won the “Case Writing Competition Hot Topic: Crisis as Opportunity” category with a case study about Vodafone in Egypt. The case “Vodafone in Egypt: National Crises and Their Implications for Multinational Corporations” focuses on the effects of political upheaval on businesses.

The case study “Anna Frisch at Aesch AG: Initiating Lateral Change” by ESMT program directors Dr. Urs Müller and Ulf Schäfer received the Case Centre Award in Human Resource Management / Organizational Behavior. The study deals with the launch of a marketing initiative and the question of which factors are imperative for successfully implementing change in companies.

Prof. Olaf Plötner, Dean of Executive Education at ESMT, said, “We are delighted that our case studies have once again been recognized by the Case Centre. For us it is important to combine practically relevant case studies and top-class cutting-edge research in the classroom.”

About ESMT
ESMT European School of Management and Technology was founded in October 2002 by 25 leading global companies and institutions. The international business school offers a full-time MBA, an executive MBA, a master’s in management as well as open enrollment and customized executive education programs. ESMT focuses on three main topics: leadership and social responsibility, European competitiveness, and the management of technology. Additionally, the business school provides an interdisciplinary platform for discourse between politics, business, and academia. ESMT is based in Berlin, Germany, with an additional campus in Schloss Gracht near Cologne, where USW Netzwerk runs the German-speaking executive education programs of the business school. ESMT is a private business school, accredited by the German state, AACSB, AMBA, and FIBAA. Since 2013 ESMT has the right to grant PhDs. http://www.esmt.org

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
