Success in both academia and industry is dependent on more than just expertise in your chosen discipline. Nowadays all employers expect to hire professionals who are not just technical experts, but are also managers with superior communication skills, able to work across cultures. Skills such as decision making and marketing your project can be learned and trained. It is for students who are aware of these challenges beyond their immediate discipline that we offer the following workshops.
The Ruhr Graduate School in Economics, RWI Essen and the Paderborn Center for Advanced Studies (PACE), have pooled their resources again for 2018, to offer you a unique and diverse “soft” skill training program. Each training has a limited number of places available with an equal number of slots for each Graduate School, so be sure to apply early to the address given below. All participants receive a certificate for a successfully completed workshop.
In the context of interdisciplinary research, joint work by representatives of different disciplines is becoming increasingly important. In cooperation with the "Competence Center Writing" we offer courses for writing scientific texts.(Link to: Kompetenzzentrum Schreiben (in German))
