Four Unique Value Propositions for Executive Education at HECTOR School

The Industry Opinion on HECTOR School

"The Certificate Course on "E-Motive and Power Electronics" was of very high teaching quality and very well organized. Many thanks to the professors for the dedicated lectures. Even though we could not be on campus - the online format was as informative as it was inspiring! A highlight was the closing "Big Picture", which accelerated the transfer of the new knowledge into the Porsche company."

Thomas Breitinger, Leiter Fachgebiet Applikation Getriebe, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG

“The online course “Hybrid and Electric Vehicles” proved to be a valuable and enriching experience for us: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Doppelbauer has great experience and superlative communication skills. The lecturer answered our questions and his supplementary anecdotes and information made the three day course really come to life.”

Gianluca Di Fulvio, EMEA Applications Engineering Group Manager at National Instruments

» When establishing the International Department the KIT recognized, how important the internationalization of the MINT faculties in Germany would be. For DAIMLER the International Department is an outstanding partner. Especially for our DAIMLER academic program students, we found that the HECTOR School is offering the competencies we need to make our company sustainable in the future.«

Dr. Anna-Maria Karl, Head of Global Talent Sourcing, Daimler AG

"There's no question about it: establishments such as the HECTOR School of Engineering & Management enrich the German higher-education landscape. They provide engineers and managers who already have a few years of professional experience under their belts with an excellent opportunity to extend their know-how and broaden their knowledge. This is why Porsche sends its own staff for further training to Karlsruhe."

Dr. Wendelin Wiedeking, Former CEO of the Porsche AG; excerpt from the keynote speech at the Graduation Ceremony of the HECTOR School in July 2007

“To keep the spirit of continual improvement among our staff we encourage individual personal development and further qualification. Therefore we are working closely together with the HECTOR School of Engineering & Management.”

Kurt Bang, Former Head of Education and Advanced Training of the Endress + Hauser GmbH & Co. KG

"The Executive Master Programs of the HECTOR School meet the requirements of our corporate executive educations because it provides a winning combination of state-of-the-art engineering solutions and key management issues embedded in the context of international operations."

Dr. Joachim Möller, Member of Board Siemens AG I&S

"As a high-potential engineer in mid-career you often do not have time for continuous education. The part-time approach of the HECTOR School efficiently interspersing periods of teaching with on-the-job-training in the Master Programs coaches executives for the quantum leap into higher management. Moreover, the combination of management topics with state-of-the-art engineering know-how is unique."

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Fleischer, Former Chairman MAG Europe
