Digitalisation and Change Management: Field of responsibility

  • Alumni relations

Universities undergo constant and rapid change. That’s why it’s so important to keep the lines of communication open with stakeholders – from potential students and cooperation partners in science and industry to alumni – and to live out the principles of diversity and change within the University. Only by doing so can we achieve our objectives in international competition.
