The WiSo Student Service moves into its new premises!

Dear WiSo students,
Finally the time has come: The WiSo Student Service moves to its new premises! Due to the typical relocation work such as packing cardboard boxes and setting up technology and workstations, the WiSo Student Service unfortunately has to close from 24th to 29th Jan 2019 inclusive. We hope for your understanding. Until 24th Jan 2019 you can still find us at Meister-Ekkehart-Str. 1, basement. As of 30th Jan 2019 you can find us then at the new extension central campus (German: „Erweiterungsbau Zentralcampus“), Universitätsstraße 24, groundfloor, room number 0.305. Please use the entrance at the WiSo faculty directly. The office hours will then take place as indicated on our website: https://www.wiso.uni-koeln.de/en/studies/service-and-guidance/wiso-student-service/ 

Thank you for your understanding!

Your WiSo Student Service team

Supermasters: Competition for the best master thesis

So much work, so little attention: Almost 138,000 students completed their Master's degree at a German university last year - but most Master's theses disappear forever after graduation. Too bad actually. Because in fact, valuable ideas are slumbering in many theses - and these ideas deserve a stage.
This is why Wirtschaftswoche is launching the "Supermaster" competition together with the Federal Association of German Economists and Business Economists.

There all graduates can apply immediately, whose thesis treated a economically relevant topic.

Further information can be found here.
