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.
Dr. Urs Müller, Program Director at ESMT
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.”

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

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...
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...
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,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
