Summer University Lingen (SUL) July 5 - July 18, 2020

Management in a global environment

The Summer University Lingen (SUL) provides insight into the field of “Management in a Global Environment”. A unique feature of the program is the practical aspect: students will visit small and medium-sized enterprises as well as family-run companies to directly apply what they have learned in class. Students will thus gain comprehensive insight into the regional, international, and global procedures of companies in Germany, the city of Lingen and its surrounding area. The two-week program is taught in English and is open for for German and international students currently enrolled in a degree program.

The SUL 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.

The Faculty of Management, Culture and Technology has 2,300 students and is located in the district of Emsland in the state of Lower Saxony. The faculty offers a high variety of study programs in the fields of business, business information, engineering, communication management, nursing and theater pedagogy.

Please note that acceptance to the SUL does not imply admission to any other program at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.
