A newly assembled leadership team of FEM was established on April 6 through respective resolutions of the Faculty Council. After four years in office, Prof. Andreas Knabe passed the baton to the new Dean, Prof. Abdolkarim Sadrieh, who thanked his predecessor for the truly outstanding work, and his significant contribution to the greater development of the faculty in difficult times, most recently marked by the pandemic. Following the proposal of Mr. Sadrieh, two Vice-Deans were elected: Professors Barbara Schöndube-Pirchegger and Sebastian Eichfelder, who were assigned the duties of Dean of Study Affairs for the next four years. The leadership of the faculty is also complemented by two so-called faculty representatives for research affairs (Prof. Andreas Knabe) and international relations (Prof. Peter Reichling). Congratulations and best wishes to all elected persons for the continued smooth-sailing and navigation of the FEM ship!
To show their solidarity with Ukraine, students of the International Study Programs (ISP) of the Faculty of Economics and Management launched a fundraising campaign. With the slogan "Cookies for Ukraine", students and staff of the university sold homemade cookies and muffins in front of the cafeteria and library. During the show of solidarity, there was also the opportunity to talk to Ukrainian students and also a family who had fled. The children Alica (4) and Kristina (8) painted pictures, which could also be purchased for a donation. In the end, a total of €610 was collected and used to purchase "Welcome Personal-Care Packs" containing dental care products, creams, shampoos, shower gels, hairbrushes and much more. A total of 70 packs could be formally handed over to the Voluntary Agency Magdeburg on April 4 and promptly distributed to newly arriving refugees in the exhibition hall. Furthermore, there was also room to financially support the Ukrainian family mentioned above, and to make a donation to the "Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe".
A big thank you to all involved!
Your professors, the scientific and administrative staff of the Faculty of Economics and Management welcome you to the start of your studies at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg! For about 75 new fellow students of our Master's programs in BWL, IMME and ORBA, the seriousness of studies, but hopefully also the pleasure of life on campus and in the state capital Magdeburg, which experience has shown to be very diversified, began on April 4. As far as the OVGU's regulated handling of the pandemic situation is concerned, we would like to refer you to corresponding information from the Rector and, last but not least, to his video message "Info on the start of the 2022 summer semester" (Youtube). For your studies starting from this point on, the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Economics and Management wish you nothing but the best!

Horst Gischer from Magdeburg goes one step further and calls on the Antitrust Authority (Kartellamt) to take action against rising fuel prices, as these are disproportionate for various reasons.
