A predominantly businessoriented university education and professional leadership experience in international business are required. An important aspect of the Professorship will be managing and developing contacts with the department's international partner universities as well as the professional network in Germany. lt is also expected that the successful candidate will be actively involved in applied research projects and will have a record of successful acquisition of thirdparty funding in the field of technology and knowledge transfer.

International practical experience lie at the heart of the successful candidate's versatile methodological tool­kit for both teaching and research. This requires a commitment to modern teaching methods, such as action learning, coaching oriented knowledge transfer and the integration of digital pedagogical techniques in the classroom.

The successful candidate will

  • Teach related subjects in other departments, as required.

  • Established achievements in the application or development of scientific knowledge and methods in professional practice for at least five years after the completion of university studies - of which at least three years must have been realised outside the higher education sector. In special cases if, during a five year period, a significant part of the candidate’s professional experience has been gained in cooperation between a university and a professional environment this may be taken as acceptable evidence of applied professional practice outside the higher education sector.
