They’re finally here! After a long, quiet break over the summer, the Vallendar campus at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management is coming back to life. All told, this year’s fall semester will see a collective 460 new students start their academic programs of choice. 190 new Master students have already concluded their Welcome Week; for the 270 new Bachelor students, everything geared up this past Monday. With the students having already started attending lectures, they know it’s time to get down to business.
“Use the time you spend on the WHU campus as a chance to develop yourselves even further,” advised Dean Markus Rudolf, greeting the 460 students with a smile at the Vallendar town hall at the start of the week. Professor Juergen Weigand (Deputy Dean of WHU and Associate Dean of Programs), Professor Christian Hagist (Director of the Bachelor Program), and Dr. Peter Kreutter (Managing Director Foundations at WHU) introduced themselves and gave the young students a warm welcome. According to Professor Weigand, it is the students who make the campus a lively, vibrant place to be following the summer break.
