The 2021 Summer University Lingen (SUL) is expected to take place on campus from August 22 until September 04. If the COVID-19 situation does not allow an on-site SUL, we will most likely offer a virtual program: We will announce our final decision in early July.

The Summer University Lingen (SUL) takes a look at the backbone of Germany’s economy: family-owned medium-sized companies, the so-called German Mittelstand. The goal of the Summer University is to analyze the key success factors of the Mittelstand companies and to gain insight into their operations and management features. A unique feature of the SUL is the practical aspect: we will visit small and medium-sized as well as family-owned companies to directly apply what you have learned in class. You will thus gain comprehensive insight into the regional, international, and global procedures of companies in Germany, the city of Lingen and its surrounding area.
