Good management guidelines

Good management and constructive cooperation are the basis for excellent results. With our good management guidelines we are continuing on our path to intensify a culture of cooperation and commitment.

Managers should take it in their stride that there are people with very different backgrounds at the university. For me this means: being appreciative and respectful.

Vice president Prof. Dr. Monique Scheer
