Initiatives and activities at WHU –

Honing talents, establishing networks, and experiencing the enthusiasm.

Studying at WHU often goes hand in hand with participation in the numerous student initiatives and events organized by the various Centers and Chairs. This is where the legendary “WHU spirit" comes alive.

Despite their busy academic schedules, many students find the time to contribute their talents and commitment to one or several student clubs, whether they be based in social engagement, sports, music, art, theater, or even the stock exchange club. The student initiatives independently organize large events and conferences, meet outstanding personalities, and experience professional project management firsthand. Through the collective organizational endeavors and often exuberant social events, they forge friendships for life.

The events organized by WHU's Centers and Chairs are magnets for top-class business practitioners, experts from academia, and sometimes even politicians. They allow for deep insights into many areas of business life and a direct exchange with the speakers and participants involved.
