Due to the current situation resulting of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current travel restrictions, the Summer University Lingen 2020 will be postponed to July 2021. We are very sorry that we cannot meet this summer in Lingen but we hope that we are able to welcome you on our campus soon.

The Summer University Lingen (SUL) takes a look at the backbone of Germany’s economy: family-owned medium-sized companies, the so-called German Mittelstand. The goal of the Summer University is to analyze the key success factors of the Mittelstand companies and to gain insight into their operations and management features. A unique feature of the SUL is the practical aspect: we will visit small and medium-sized as well as family-owned companies to directly apply what you have learned in class. You will thus gain comprehensive insight into the regional, international, and global procedures of companies in Germany, the city of Lingen and its surrounding area.
