Last week, university president Prof. Dr. Tobias Engelsleben, site manager Marcus Bergs, dean of studies Prof. Dr. Christian Lengfeld and students of the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences received a delegation from the Assumption University of Thailand (AU) at the Berlin site. Several times a year, the AU Graduate School of Business organizes international excursions, where students of the master’s programs gain insights into companies, institutions and other cultures. This year, Dr. Witsaroot Pariyaprasert, Director of the MBA programs, accompanied 35 Thai students.
During the reception, Prof. Engelsleben presented Hochschule Fresenius, Marcus Bergs the Berlin location, Rouven Sperling, representing the city of Berlin, the economy and culture of the capital, and finally Prof. Lengfeld presented the International Business School and the new double degree options. From the International Business School Berlin the two Master students Stella Kramer and Lucas Kiniziak presented results from their case studies “Actionable Communication Activities for Teufel Lautsprecher on YouTube” and “Digital Future of the Logistic Industry” with the partner Capgemini Invent.
Fresenius has been cooperating with the Assumption University of Thailand since 2018. This cooperation has now been expanded to include two optional double degree programs at the master’s level. Prof. Dr. Tobias Engelsleben and Dr. Witsaroot Pariyaprasert signed the articulation agreement during the meeting in Berlin. Starting in the winter semester 2020/2021, MBA and Master Management students of the AU can use this program to earn an additional degree in Germany in the English-language Master’s program International Business Management (M.A.) at Hochschule Fresenius.
“We are very pleased that we can expand our network of international cooperation partners by extending our cooperation with the AU and welcome and train guest students from Thailand here with us,” said Engelsleben. Dr. Witsaroot Pariyaprasert was also pleased about the expansion of the cooperation and considers the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences with its many locations in Germany to be an important partner. Lengfeld emphasized the advantages of studying at Hochschule Fresenius: “We attach great importance to high-quality, practice-oriented teaching and research and encourage teamwork and networking among our students, lecturers and representatives from the business world”.
