Summer University Lingen 2024


The Summer University Lingen (SUL) 2024 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 and will especially focus on how these companies implement sustainabilty measures into their day-to-day operations. 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.
