High proportion of women students

01.09.2010
This week students of the 12th full-time MBA year of GISMA Business School have begun their studies in Hanover.

55 students from almost 20 different countries have come to Lower Saxony to complete their graduate studies with the Master of Business Administration (MBA).

After just an eleven-month study period the participants will be awarded both the American MBA qualification given by Purdue University as well as the German title from the Leibniz University, Hannover.

What is particularly noticeable this year is the large proportion of women, namely 42%. In addition, there are many students with a first degree in engineering and sciences.

Traditionally studies at GISMA begin with a round of introductions during which all the participants tell something about their previous qualifications and career experience.

Private aspects are also briefly mentioned. Thus the students got to know among other things about the particular challenges of two of their female colleagues: the 34-year-old Megan from USA has come to Hanover with her four children to strike out on a new professional direction with her MBA studies.

And a young Pakistani lady had taken her passport and visa into the office by chance a few days before departing for Germany in order to make copies – it was the day on which her home went under in the floods.

Facts and figures about this full-time MBA year:

Participants: 55 (42% female; 58% male)

Geographical distribution: Europe 19%
Asia 40%
North America 35%
South America 4%
Oceania 2%
Average age: 28.2 years
Average professional experience: 5.3 years
First degrees:
Engineering and Sciences 44%
Economics 32%
Humanities 24%

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
