Dr. Toni Richter habilitated

Dr. Richter was dressed appropriately for the faculty’s annual courtyard barbeque on June 15; he put his BBQ apron on swiftly, and the time had come for him to enjoy the grill-fest of the faculty in a very pleasant, casual manner and receive his habilitation certificate from the Dean of the Faculty of Economics, Prof. Sadrieh. The efforts have been worth it, at last it has been accomplished! After writing, submitting, reviewing, and successfully defending his habilitation thesis, as well as receiving a positively evaluated outcome of a public lecture, he has been awarded the teaching qualification and authorization in the field of economics by a resolution of the Faculty Council at the beginning of June. "The habilitation" as the state university law puts it, "is proof of being able to represent a field of science [...] independently." The corresponding attainment of the degree "doctor habilitatus" also entitles the holder to use the title "Privatdozent". Congratulations to PD Dr. Richter!

PD Dr. Rainer Kleber appointed as Associate Professor

An appointment with the President of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg on May 17 - not an everyday occurrence for apl. Prof. Dr. Rainer Kleber, and this particular time for a special honor: his appointment as "Associate Professor" of the Faculty of Economics, or more precisely: the granting of the right to use the same title ("apl. Prof.", or alternatively simply "Prof.") from now on. He has been a private lecturer at FEM for many years, has been active with great success and commitment in research and teaching, has been present at meetings, conferences, in numerous publications, etc. Hence, this honor bestowed upon him is a well-deserved acknowledgement and confirmation of his outstanding academic work over the past years.

Prof. Rainer Kleber is today only the second faculty member ever to be awarded the title. Congratulations!

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.
