The 2019/2020 winter semester timetables for all Bachelor and Master programs of the FEM have been uploaded and are available online. Experience has shown, however, that there will be a number of changes in the syllabus leading up to the start of lectures on October 14th. These adjustments will be taken into account and changes to the timetables will be made promptly.
Until then: Best wishes to all FEM students - enjoy the summer, recharge yourself, and get ready to start the winter semester freshly motivated!
Congratulations to Sabrina Jeworrek, FEM Junior Professor of Applied Microeconometrics and Head of a Research Group at the Leibniz Institut Halle of Economics Research (IWH), for a successful interim evaluation!

After reviewing the lecturer evaluations provided by students in the Eval.uni-Portal, it was clear for some time to whom the FEM Teaching Prizes for the winter semester 2018/19 would go. The summer party for the faculty staff, held at the beginning of July, provided dean of studies Prof. Eichfelder the perfect occasion to reveal the secret and present the award. Prof. Jan Ehmke (LS Management Science) was honored, not for the first time, for his “outstanding commitment to the bachelor's degree programs.” The best overall ranking in the master's field was received by Jun.-Prof. Felix Noth (JP Banking and Financial Systems). We would like to congratulate the aforementioned lecturers as well as all other winners (Bachelor: 2nd Prof. Michael Kvasnicka, 3rd Thomas Horstmannshoff, M. Sc., wMa at LS Management Science; Master: 2nd Prof. Horst Gischer, 3rd Prof. Matthias Raith)!
