On October 8, the time had come – we bid a fitting farewell to the 16th class of our Executive MBA Technology Management. In a personal round with nevertheless festive atmosphere, the graduates were honored and awarded certificates as a sign of their well-deserved graduation. Friends and family, as well as professors Malte Brettel, Frank Piller, Peter Letmathe, and Daniel Wentzel, celebrated this day together with the rightfully proud group.

Prof. Brettel, Vice-Rector for Industry and Business Relations at RWTH Aachen University, emphasized in his speech the changes we are currently facing in so many areas of life and how the newly graduated Executive MBAs can, must, and will make their contribution here. Prof. Piller, academic director of the program, reinforced the message that everyone can contribute to shaping change. With the “tools” acquired during their studies, our graduates are well equipped for this challenge!

Aline Wesner, Chief Operating Officer of RWTH Business School, proudly told how, despite the special Corona situation, a network for life has developed among the participants. This was also confirmed by Dr. Jan Ruppelt, who was honored as the best student of the year, as he reviewed the course of studies on behalf of all alumni: fellow students had become friends over the two years, and they would remain in contact beyond their studies.

After the awarding of the certificates in the Couven Museum, we went out to the Katschhof: Traditionally, the hats are thrown here in front of the impressive scenery, the Aachen Cathedral. The festivities continued in the Ratskeller – in a cheerful and relaxed mood, people celebrated until the early hours. Nevertheless, everyone was back the next day for brunch and a guided tour of the city. We congratulate the graduates on their well-deserved degrees and wish them all the best and much success in further shaping change!
