The WiSo Faculty Dean’s List – the award for excellent students

In the summer semester of 2009 the Dean of the WiSo Faculty officially presented the Dean’s Award to the top 5 and 10 per cent of students of the first Bachelor year. This form of recognition of excellent academic work has now been widened to include the Master degrees and is awarded each semester. The first students on the Dean’s List have already graduated and have successfully entered professional life.

Students on the Dean’s List are often in high demand from the recruiting companies. Well-known companies often invite Dean’s List students, via the WiSo Career Service, to corporate presentations and workshops.

The top 10% of a cohort receive awards. In order to be eligible, bachelor students must have reached their fourth term of study by the selection date with credit points equivalent to the quintal Q.2  (20%) of the cohort; in other words, only those students will be considered who are in the top 20% of students in terms of number of credit points awarded. Furthermore, the overall average grade of all examinations taken by the selection date must be at least ‘Gut’ (good).

Master:

The top 10% of a cohort receive awards. In order to be eligible, master students must have reached their third term of study by the selection date with credit points equivalent to the quintal Q.2  (20%) of the cohort; in other words, only those students will be considered who are in the top 20% of students in terms of number of credit points awarded.
