The WiSo Faculty's international profile

Faculty-wide internationalisation is a core value of the Cologne Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo Faculty). As a founding member of CEMS – The Global Alliance in Management Education, the Faculty has been living up to this value since 1988. We are proud to provide our students and teaching staff with an outstanding network of excellent partner schools around the world, enabling and facilitating international exchange for both research and teaching. In 2012, the WiSo Faculty joined the ranks of EQUIS-accredited​​​​​​​ business schools. 

To promote internationalisation, our objectives are:

  • to generate a rich and consistent flow of high-quality, relevant articles for international journals so as to have an impact on the research agenda of the international scientific community; and
  • to educate and train internationally competitive graduates who bring their employers advanced knowledge and well-developed problem-solving capabilities, and are prepared for independent life-long learning.
