Higher Education Management

Since September 2011 I have been running the Bachelor in Business Administration at Frankfurt School. As Program Director, my team of ten highly motivated professionals and I have full operational and strategic product responsibility for the program with some 950 students and roughly 8m EUR annual revenues.

I also maintain current and establish new contacts with business and academic partners in Germany and abroad and develop the program portfolio. Together with our in-house recruitment team I work on worldwide marketing strategies for the program and represent our institution abroad at conferences and other events.

Since 2018 I’m a member of the Steering Committee for the annual Bachelor Conference at EFMD.

Curriculum Development

An essential part of my tasks as Program Director for Frankfurt School’s Bachelor in Business Administration is the development of the curriculum. What is the future of Business Education? I work together with faculty and liaise with external experts, such as employers, to make sure that the curriculum prepares our students in the best way possible for their future professional challenges.

Part of my strategic responsibility is to develop and implement new concepts. This has included a complete overhaul of the curriculum (2013 and 2015), the introduction of two concentrations entirely taught in English (2012) and a pilot project around leadership, innovation, and collaboration (“Creative Complexity”, 2012–2014).

In addition to continuous improvements, I have designed and implemented various major strategic reforms. I also ran a large pilot project around leadership, innovation, and collaboration (“Creative Complexity”).
