Summer University Lingen (SUL)

July 5 - July 18, 2020

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

Update on COVID-19: Summer University Lingen 2020 postponed due to COVID-19

Due to the current situation resulting of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current travel restrictions, the Summer University Lingen 2020 will be postponed to July 2021. We are very sorry that we cannot meet this summer in Lingen but we hope that we are able to welcome you on our campus soon.

The Summer University Lingen (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 aspect: we will visit small and medium-sized as well as family-owned companies to directly apply what we have learned in class. 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. 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.

Dates: July 5 - July 18, 2020
