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

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
