Project Management & New Work

Business Administration - Essentials

A workshop offered by the Human Resources Development

The workshop provides a compact and practical introduction to the basics of business administration. In addition to the explanation of typical economic thinking and theories, this primarily concerns insights into the areas of corporate management, organization, controlling and marketing. In this workshop, knowledge is imparted that is needed after a job change to the business world in order to be able to understand and classify the processes in companies. At the same time, however, this is also increasingly relevant for scientific activities, especially in the area of third-party funded projects and research management; for the preparation of one's own self-employment it is essential.

Yes. If an event is fully booked, we will put you on the waiting list. You may then move up the list if a space becomes free with enough time still to go before the event starts.

Only some of the rooms in the “Alte Sternwarte” have barrier-free access. Should you need help getting in, please get in touch with your named contact in good time so that we can give you the support you need on the day of the event.

The further training offers provided by Human Resource Development at the University of Bonn are only open to people who have signed a work contract with the University, are enrolled as a doctoral student, are conducting research on behalf of the University or are an associated member of a research consortium.
