Welcome to the Faculty of Economics and Management
at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg
What starting salary can I expect and what do fellow students expect? What soft skills are employers looking for? What career-type am I? Which companies are right for me? How do my career goals differ from those of others?
This is what the Universum Career Test asks more than a million students every year. The aim is to help with career path optimization, partnering graduating university students with companies in the best possible way. Participation is open until April 8th.
As of February 1st, 2019, Prof. David Bendig , former Academic Councilor at RWTH Aachen, has begun his duties as head of the newly established Department of Behavioral International Management in Building 23. We hope all goes well as he settles in to Magdeburg, takes on ambitious research projects, and advances in his career; moreover, best wishes for a successful collaboration with colleagues in the FWW Professorium, staff, and students!
On behalf of WirtschaftsWoche, renowned research institutes (KOF Zurich, DICE Dusseldorf) compiled a BWLer -Ranking in accordance with current survey standards. After evaluating hundreds of international journals and assembling complex calculations of publication performance of around 2,500 researchers in the field of German-speaking business administration, the list of rankings has been confirmed. Marko Sarstedt, Professor of Marketing at FEM, officially belongs to the "Junge Wilden", i.e. the strongest business economists under 40 years of age. His truly remarkable research, which was also awarded the OVGU research prize at the end of last year, propelled him to place 25 in the aforementioned group.
In the overall ranking of authors, Prof. Gudrun Kiesmüller is named as the best Magdeburger in places 117 ("Life Achievement") and 103 (Publication Achievement 2014 to '18). With these outstanding results, she is now one of the top 5% of researchers in the field of business administration based and/or born in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.
Last but not least, Andreas Bortfeldt , who became an associate professor at the FEM until his retirement at the end of last year, received a place on the 250-name Lifetime List. Congratulations to all participants!
