Advisory Board Industry and Practice

The Committee advises the Board of the International Centre and Graduate School on the further development of the international Master's degree programmes and makes its expertise available for additional topics in the field of internationality at the Hochschule Esslingen. Through constant exchange, it is possible to keep a close eye on the needs for industry and practice and adapt accordingly.

Members Advisory Board Industry and Practice

The Graduate School Advisory Board was founded on 12 March 1998 and currently has 14 members. It consists of representatives of local council, science and economy.

The Advisory Board advises and supports the Graduate School, not only financially in providing sponsors as well as marketing support, but also in helping determine the direction of academic development. In decisions, for example, to set up or abolish study programs, or to change the Study and Examination Regulations, the Advisory Board plays a key role.

The Advisory Board usually meets twice each year. Students are not represented in the Advisory Board.
