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: 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.
