New Paths in Further Education

“In order to make companies fit for the challenges of our highly complex, dynamic and transformative world, further education must also break new ground: Both new training content and new training formats are in demand. I am pleased to be able to accompany Munich Business School in this exciting time, in which it is all about actively shaping innovation and developing the business model sustainably”, says Rita Niedermayr with regard to her new task on the Advisory Board of MBS.

The Advisory Board of Munich Business School is made up of proven experts from business, society and education and advises the university in the development of its academic profile and future strategies. This includes, in particular, strategic advice and constructive, yet critical support in issues of teaching, research and continuing education. On the one hand, the focus is on a constructive dialogue on the future requirements of business and society for university graduates. On the other hand, the aim is to identify important future topics for research and to promote the transfer of research results into practice.

Since MBS has been working with the Controller Institute in the area of Executive Education for several years and here has a valuable cooperation partner at its side, Professor Dr. Stefan Baldi, Dean of Munich Business School, is especially pleased to have won Dr. Rita Niedermayr for the Advisory Board of the university:
