Since PFH commenced teaching activities in 1995, companies with an excellent market position and a high reputation, ranging from SMEs to global players, have been represented on PFH's Board of Trustees. This broad line-up of Dax companies, on the one hand, and SME partners from a wide variety of industries, on the other, guarantees the innovative impetus for rendering the study programme practically oriented and extending its practical orientation.
8 of the 13 companies in the present Board of Trustees have been actively involved in the "With business for business" process from the outset as founding members. This fruitful collaboration over many years guarantees continuity and is the best proof of the success that the university and companies have achieved to date through this partnership.
The shared objective over the coming years continues to be to mould young academic talent that is superbly trained and demonstrates entrepreneurial dynamism in meeting the challenges facing Germany as a business location.
Endowed Chair - Partnership Model with a Future
The close affiliation of companies with the University in the context of endowed chairs has a rich tradition of success.
The establishment of the endowed chairs of Tourism and Travel Management (TUI AG), Entrepreneurship (Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH), Structural Mechanics of Fibre Composites (CFK-Valley Stade e. V.) and Lightweight Engineering & Composites (Airbus Operations GmbH) has become the driving force behind University expansion and is another example of collaborative partnership in practice between the business world and the University, which guarantees maximum practical orientation in the academic environment. If you are interested in involvement in the context of an endowed chair, please contact Bianka Melanie Krietenstein, Head of Business Services.
