Summer University Lingen (SUL)

August 22 - September 4, 2021

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

The Summer University Lingen (SUL) 2021 is expected to take place on campus from August 22 until September 04, 2021. If the COVID-19 situation does not allow an on-site SUL, we will offer a virtual program. The final decision will be announced early July 2021. During the application process, you will be asked (without obligation) whether you would also participate in an online version of the program. This information is very important for our planning.

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 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.
