The lecture series 'studium generale' has been an integral part of the University's lecture offerings since the academic year 2007/2008. This series has the title 'Administration, Politics and Economy in Dialogue'. The series is aimed at students as well as interested persons from the general public. Guest speakers of high renown are invited to speak on current topics from these areas. Lecturers have included not only Heribert Rech, Minister of the Interior for the State of Baden Württemberg, but also the Chariman of the University Council, Stefan Gläser, a former mayor and managing director of the Association of Cities in Baden-Württemberg, and Hans Nußbaum, a businessman with world-wide experience.
The studium generale is an opportunity, independent of the regular lessons and seminars, to discuss interesting and current topics and serves as a platform for continuing education and information.
The studium generale is part of Module 15 for students in the University's bachelor's program.
