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.”Press contact

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
