Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

In addition to a conventional semester abroad, students have the chance to collaborate with students from various countries and gain international experience in these international weeks. Multinational working groups examine a particular question and then present their findings.

The Student Conference on "Diversity Management" is organised by the network partners HUMINT (Human Resources International). HUMINT was created in March 2010 with the aim to facilitate European teaching and learning experience for university staff and students. It takes place annually in November and is hosted by another partner university every year.
