Beyond the variety of topics and the mix of interactive learning experiences, there are some other benefits:

  • MOS students, participating at the AAE Summer School, can substitute one seminar of the MOS study programme, for instance, “New concepts of leadership” or “Advances in Organisation and International Management II”.
  • Daily food and transportation costs will be covered by funding.
  • Get a “taste for science” and the academic world by meeting international researchers and writing your first research paper for a publication.

Our partners from University of KwaZulu Natal in Durban South Africa and ICN Business School in Nancy, France are going to send students to attend the AAE Summer School. We are also trying to integrate further universities from all over the world to make the AAE Summer School in 2025 an international and intercultural experience.


Interested students from Chemnitz University of Technology can apply for the AAE Summer School by submitting a short CV and an abstract** of approximately 1,000 words until the 9th of September 2024. The abstract needs to describe a research idea or project fitting into the topic of “Investigating the interrelation of culture, creativity, innovation and sustainable development in the age of disruption”. It should have a title and a particular research question and should describe why this is important, what the theoretical frame is and what research method will be used. Each student will present his or her research project in a special Summer School sub-track at the conference.
