Dear Sir or Madam,
The Esslingen Graduate School is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The establishment of the Graduate School in 1999 was an important step in international development at our university. We were one of the first state universities in Germany to offer an English-language MBA.
Our goal was to create a top international master’s programme, geared towards young international engineers who would build bridges between this culture and their own. The success of the MBA led to the introduction, in 1999, of two further English-language, interdisciplinary engineering programmes.
It fills us with great pride that, throughout the years, we have been able to fulfill the high expectations the industry has of graduates. The success of the past 20 years is a further incentive for us to continually develop our programmes, keeping in close touch with the requirements of international industry. With our celebration, we are taking the opportunity to cast a glance into the future.
You are warmly invited to join us in celebrating and envisioning "The Future of Work."
Prof. Dr. Christian Maercker Prof. Dr. Siegfried Zürn
