Project Joint Expertise*
for Responsible, Sustainable and Global Aware Management, 01.01.2017-31.12.2020
* Gefördert vom DAAD und dem Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung im Programm Fachbezogene Partnerschaften mit Hochschulen in Entwicklungsländern
With the project “Joint Expertise” we aim to form a multi-level, permanent and academic cooperation in responsible, sustainable and global aware management education and practice especially for master and doctoral students between the University of Technology Chemnitz, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the University of Kwazulu-Natal (UKZN), School of Management, IT and Governance.
We are collaborating since many years with UKZN and intend to conceptualize, test and certify a new master program in Durban within the project together. Thereby, we will transfer the knowledge around the topics and the experience of adequate methods and modules. We will implement interactive workshops and supervised reflections in a recursive procedure consisting of theoretical and practical parts. During the four years of cooperation the project focusses on intercultural, academic and practical exchange of knowledge, students and staff. Therefor multifunctional and cross-continental attendances in South Africa, Germany and at further international universities are planned.
Chemnitz students will have the unique opportunity to include modules and research topics of the newly developed master program in their local curriculum. For participants of both universities bilateral research projects and collaborative work on publications and presentations on conferences will be introduced and expand intercultural skills. Furthermore, academic cooperation of mixed cultural tandems or small groups will contribute to the international research and provide the chance for international cooperation and contacts.
