As in previous years, the School's Award for Teaching was presented by the Student Representative Body ('Fachschaft'). The prize is awarded in two categories: academic staff members and professors.

In the first category, this year's award winner is Dr. Garnet Kasperk. The prize in the second category was awarded to Prof. Oliver Lorz.

The Dean of Studies, Prof. von Nitzsch, emphasized the great importance attached to 'good teaching' by the School and the University. Two members of the 'Fachschaft' - Mr. Maximilian Himmler and Mr. Nils Utecht - told the audience why specifically Mrs. Kasperk and Prof. Lorz had been nominated for the awards:

Dr. Garnet Kasperk is the Director of the Center for International Automobile Management (CIAM). For over 10 years, her research has focused on the strategies of the automotive and energy industries.

Especially in the context of her lecture "International Automobile Management" and the project modules "Innovative Business Model in Mobility" and "Strategies in the Field of Electromobility" in the Master's program Business Administration and Industrial Engineering she came into contact with numerous students.

Prof. Dr. Oliver Lorz has been head of the Department of International Economic Relations at RWTH Aachen University since 2004 and has been able to establish broad contact with students in the bachelor's programme of business studies, particularly through his modules "Microeconomics II" and "The Global Economy: Trade and Investment".

The fact that the teaching concepts of Dr. Kasperk and Prof. Dr. Lorz always leave a positive impression on the students is shown, among other things, by the fact that they are at the top of the surveys. Both are undoubtedly an enrichment for the School of Business and Economics and will certainly continue to offer students interesting and attractive lectures in the future.
