WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management has made an impressive leap forward in the field of digitization and is ready to grow and strengthen its position in the business school market. In a first step, WHU welcomes its students back to campus.
"When we resume classroom teaching, we want to make sure that faculty, students, and staff feel safe. By using the latest technology in all our security processes, we will make the return to campus as smooth as possible, while at the same time ensuring participation for all those who cannot travel yet," says Prof. Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU.
Three areas are crucial for the return to the campuses in Düsseldorf and Vallendar: Health and safety, education and campus life, and the courage and commitment of all WHU members. Based on the experiences the school has made in online teaching over the past few months, the introduction of a hybrid teaching format enables WHU to offer all students, regardless of their location, to participate in the lectures which take place in the classrooms. Part of the concept will also be the adjustment of the opening hours of the campus facilities. There is extensive technicals equipment, there are additional hygiene measures, and increased safety procedures in order to comply with the recommended hygiene and distance regulations.
This step towards normality is the first in a series of growth initiatives, which are to be implemented with full commitment to WHU’s motto "Excellence in Management Education". The school will, e.g., use its recent experience in online teaching to add a Global Online MBA course to its portfolio, which will be open to students from all over the world. The hashtag #WHUreadytogrow is intended to underline the school’s growth strategy.
