Summer University Lingen (SUL)

July 10 - July 23, 2022

Global Players and Hidden Champions: Business and Technology Made in Germany

Deadline extended until June 1, 2022

The Summer University Lingen (SUL) 2022 is offered by the Faculty of Management, Culture and Technology at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and will take place in the city of Lingen. Our Summer University will offer plenty of

  • interaction
  • networking
  • teamwork
  • and of course: lots of fun

The two-week program is taught in English and is open for German and international students currently enrolled in a degree program. We award 5 ECTS for participating.

The SUL takes a look at the backbone of Germany’s economy: family-owned medium-sized companies, the so-called German Mittelstand. The goal of the Summer University is to analyze the key success factors of the Mittelstand companies and to gain insight into their operations and management features. A unique feature of the SUL is the practical and interactive part: we will visit Mittelstand companies and meet with their representatives and will engage in group and project work. You will thus gain comprehensive insight into the regional, international, and global procedures of companies in Germany, the city of Lingen and its surrounding area. Please find more information on the program below.

Information on current Covid-19 regulations

Currently, there are no covid related restrictions regarding the participation in our summer programs. This means that no proof of vaccination, recovery or negative testing must be presented. We assume that this will also be the case during the summer months. However, Hochschule Osnabrück strongly recommends to only participate in our summer programs if fully vaccinated (at least 2 shots) or recovered and to wear FFP2 masks when inside. In the event of rising case numbers or an increased strain on the medical system, we will adjust our restrictions accordingly.

We will also provide updated information here (website) and on our official covid information page:

Our university has developed a very detailed and safe hygiene concept that complies with the local health authorities. Our Summer University will be in compliance with the appropriate safety precautions.
