Magdeburg, Germany

Responses to the amalgamation of university-level business research

Explanations of the VHB Executive Board from 12.11.2013 and 14.5.2014 



Against the backdrop of the current discussions and the recommendation of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) with regard to the amalgamation of the Saarland University and the University of Applied Sciences, and the fusion of Brandenburg University of Technology and Lausitz University of Applied Sciences in business research education, the German Academic Association for Business Research declares itself against the amalgamation of university-level teaching in the proposed form and recommends preserving the highly successful two-pronged university system.
