STRAT-O program

The STRAT-O program is an extracurricular program for the top performers at our chair. Participation in this program is based on the performance and commitment of the students in our courses and by personal invitation.

The goal of the program is to support students in their academic and professional careers. STRAT-O members are offered the opportunity to network with potential employers and develop their personal skills through guest lectures, case study workshops or mentoring programs. In addition, we offer application checks, career coaching and academic lectures within the program.


For Businesses:

For companies, the program serves as an intermediary to highly qualified future employees. We would be happy to discuss with you the possibilities of cooperation, for example in the form of guest lectures, company visits, projects within the scope of final theses or direct mentoring.
