Student Newsletter: July 1st, 2020

Dear Students,

this week we have some interesting offers in our infomail, which will help you get ahead! We would also like to congratulate our new alumni.

Take a look!

Your WiSo Student Infomail Team

Congratulations to all our Graduates!

It is one of the fine traditions of the WiSo Faculty that all graduates receive a well-deserved recognition of their achievements at the joint examination ceremony organised by the WiSo student council and the Faculty. In this sense, the Digital Examination Ceremony on Saturday was also a festive occasion. Whether future alumni or fellow students in other study programmes, we cordially congratulate all our graduates!

Buddy Programme for the fall term 2020/21

ZIB WiSo looks for students and doctoral candidates interested in mentoring guest students!

Each term, the International Relations Center at the WiSo Faculty (ZIB WiSo) and the PIM and CEMS Student and Alumni Club Cologne e.V. organise a Buddy Programme for guest students from the WiSo Faculty's partner universities. At the beginning of each term, ZIB WiSo looks for students and doctoral candidates interested in mentoring guest students for that term.

Since the semester start has been postponed to 2 November 2020, we expect our incomings to ‘arrive’ in early/mid-October. Whether our guest students will be spending their exchange with us online or on-site in Cologne, they will need support and assistance – which means they need you!

  • Participate in the "Welcome Days"
