ESMT MBA introduces sustainability and technology management tracks

18.01.2011
- Curriculum sharpens focus on management of technology, sustainability, and responsible leadership

- 39 members of MBA Class of 2011 represent 18 nationalities

- New Kofi Annan Fellows from Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe

Germany’s business school ESMT European School of Management and Technology has strengthened the emphasis placed on technology management and sustainable business in its MBA curriculum. Starting this year, students may choose a track focusing on one of these areas.

Responsible leadership, a founding principle of ESMT, remains a central theme throughout the MBA curriculum. The practicalities of responsible leadership are introduced with a compulsory module dedicated to the concept and are intertwined throughout the program. This development reflects changes in the international business environment and has been welcomed by the 25 leading global companies, such as Allianz, Daimler, Deutsche Bank, and Siemens, who founded and work closely together with the business school in Germany.

The class of 28 men and 11 women, who represent 18 different nationalities, have started the one-year intensive international MBA in Berlin in January. The students come from countries such as France, Georgia, Germany, India, Israel, Mexico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States, among others. They are on average 29 years old and have five years of work experience. Seven members of the class have been nominated by their employers, Allianz, MAN, and ThyssenKrupp. There are also two Corporate Fellows supported by Daimler and Deutsche Bank. The Corporate Fellowship Program includes a full-tuition scholarship and attractive career possibilities following graduation.

Adding to the diversity of the Class of 2011 are the two Kofi Annan Fellows from Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe. Kofi Annan Fellowships are awarded to outstanding candidates from a developing country who commit to returning to their home country to participate in the advancement of the regional economy. The fellowship covers tuition, living expenses, and a return air ticket. Nodir Nurimbetov, Kofi Annan Fellow from Uzbekistan said, “I am proud to have been chosen as a Kofi Annan Fellow at ESMT. The school’s close relationship to successful international corporations and its practical approach are unique. I am excited about learning from the diverse faculty and student body and returning to my home country with new insights.”

ESMT President Lars-Hendrik Röller commented, “The changes to the MBA curriculum demonstrate ESMT’s continued commitment to educating global responsible leaders. As a young school, ESMT can adapt to change quickly and take the needs of international business into account.”

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
