1.      The Universität Stuttgart


Description of the Universität Stuttgart

The Universität Stuttgart, which was founded in 1829, has integrated the social sciences
and the humanities with engineering and the natural sciences to become an internationally
renown future-oriented place of teaching and research. Today nearly 17,000 students are
studying to complete their degrees in one of the 44 degree courses offered by the 14
faculties. More than 2,900 of these young men and women are international students.

The Universität Stuttgart holds a leading position in both basic and applied research and is
proud of its tradition of close cooperation with industry as well as with other research
institutions such as the Fraunhofer-Society for Production Engineering, the Baden-
Württemberg Materials Testing Centre and the German Aerospace Research Institute.
These close relationships also stimulate important impulses for teaching at the university.

Office of International Affairs                                           General Information


The Structure of Studies

A degree course is divided into the Stage 1 Studies („Grundstudium“) and the Stage 2
Studies („Hauptstudium“). Visiting students within partnership programs may take
courses in either stage.

The Stage 1 Studies last at least 4 semesters and give a general introduction into the
chosen field of study. The Stage 1 Studies are completed with a pre-diploma examination
(„Vordiplom“) in the engineering sciences or with an intermediate examination
(„Zwischenprüfung“) in the social sciences and humanities respectively before the Stage 2
Studies. In contrast to the Anglo-American system the successfully completed Stage 1
Studies do not constitute an academic degree or professional qualification.

During the Stage 2 Studies students continue their studies and extend their knowledge in
a more specialised way. At the end of the Stage 2 Studies students have to write a project
work (Diplomarbeit) in the engineering sciences or a final thesis (Magisterarbeit) in the
humanities. After having successfully passed the final examination students obtain their
degree (a Diplom degree in the engineering sciences, a Magister Artium degree in the
humanities) which enables them to start their professional career.


Which courses must I take?

In comparison to the Anglo-American university system, students at German universities
generally have more freedom in the selection of the courses they choose to take and
when they take them. However, this does vary from subject to subject. Many of the
courses in the natural sciences and engineering are obligatory whereas students studying
in the humanities and social sciences generally choose the courses they want to take on a
more individual basis.
One further difference is the time for selecting courses. This does not normally take place
at the end of the previous semester but during the first two weeks of the semester itself.
This, and the freedom of choice is often confusing for international students. For this
reason, the individual faculties offer comprehensive information seminars at the beginning
of each semester to help students in their choice. Additional information is given during
the Orientation Seminar (see page 9) and can be found in the Welcome Guide. Should
you still have difficulties do not hesitate to contact the Office of International Affairs.


What kind of courses are offered?

The Universität Stuttgart distinguishes between the following types of courses:

 Lecture
  held by an instructor in front of a large group of students

 Exercises
  the subject matter is reviewed again and deepened in smaller groups; often exercises
  accompany lectures


Information Package                                                                       10
Office of International Affairs                                               General Information


 Seminars
 student active participation is very important; students present papers on a given topic
 followed by discussion

 Practical courses
  common in the natural sciences and engineering and usually involving experiments in a
  laboratory

As a rule, a class involves two credit hours. One credit hour, Semesterwochenstunde
(SWS), corresponds to 45 minutes in the classroom over the whole semester. Generally
all courses are taught in German.


Transferring Credits

There are two possibilities for visiting students to receive credit for work done in Stuttgart:

 Visiting students can participate in regular courses and take the final written or oral
  exam in each course in order to be awarded a proof of academic achievement or
  Schein. In addition to receiving a Schein for successfully completing a written exam or
  Klausur, it can be awarded for a project paper or Hausarbeit (an essay on a specific
  topic of between 10 and 20 pages in length) or for an assignment and oral
  presentation or Referat (a paper presented on a given topic usually as part of a
  seminar). Grades range from 1 (very good) to 4 (sufficient). If a student receives a
  grade below 4, then the course has been failed and needs to be repeated. In some
  courses grades are not given.

 Students under the SOCRATES exchange-scheme will receive their credits according
  to the ECTS-agreement (European Credit Transfer System), which is to be discussed
  between the student and the home and host supervisors.

 Some advanced visiting students may wish to work on an independent project
  supervised by a professor. Such independent study corresponds closely to a
  Studienarbeit, which is required in engineering and many of the natural sciences.
  Students wishing to do this type of independent study need to find a professor at the
  Universität Stuttgart who is willing to supervise such a project work. The question of
  credit transfer to the home universities should also be clarified in advance. The subject
  advisors or Fachstudienberater/in can assist in finding a supervisor. Their addresses
  can be found in WWW under
  http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/studium/beratung/fachberatung.html or from The
  Office of International Affairs (address see page 6).

Please clarify the question of credit transfer with your home universities prior to
coming to Stuttgart and make sure that you maintain contact with your home supervisor
during your stay here. This is possible via e-mail.

3.      Other Facilities at the Universität Stuttgart


Libraries

There are two university libraries, one on the City Centre Campus and one on the
Vaihingen Campus. Students need a library ticket in order to be able to borrow books from
the library. This can be obtained at one of the university libraries. Please note that many of
the faculties and institutes have their own libraries, too.


Computer Centre and E-mail

The computer centre of the Universität Stuttgart (RUS) provides a number of terminals for
student use. Demand is extremely high so students must be prepared to wait. Should you
wish to open an e-mail account, you can do so at the Computer Advising Centre RUS-
Benutzerberatung on presentation of your registration number (handed to you at
registration).


Sports Activities

The Institute of Sports Science offers a whole range of sporting activities each semester.
They are generally free and are frequently organised by students. These can be such
regular events as volleyball, hockey and climbing or special excursions such as skiing in
winter or sailing in summer. A comprehensive programme is provided at the beginning of
each semester and a copy can be obtained at The Office of International Affairs.


Meals

Students must provide for their own meals. This can be done inexpensively by eating in
the Student Union cafeteria or Mensa. In addition to the Mensa on the City Centre
Campus and in Vaihingen, there are a number of student cafeterias. The Mensa is open
for lunch five days a week. There is always a choice of meal which costs between DM 3
and DM 5. The cafeterias are normally open weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and
offer drinks and small snacks.

Residence Permits and Visa Regulations

SOCRATES-Students from EU-countries and visiting students who are citizens of
the USA:

Visiting students who are either EU-citizens or citizens of the USA can enter Germany with
their passports and apply for their residence permit Aufenthaltsbewilligung at the foreign
registration office of the City of Stuttgart Ausländerbehörde after arrival. Since Germany
has registration laws, all persons must register at the general registration office

other incidentals                  approx.              DM 100


Dormitory Accommodation

The Office of International Affairs can provide a room in one of the dormitories for all of
the visiting students who are admitted to the Universität Stuttgart. SOCRATES students
apply for a room by sending the form Application for Student Housing to their relevant
SOCRATES Student Advisor not later than 3 months prior to coming to Stuttgart. All other
visiting students send this form to Ms. Gertrud Burger at the Office of International Affairs.

Most of the dormitories are located on the Campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen and on the
campus of the Pädagogische Hochschule (teachers training college) in Ludwigsburg and
they are mixed. All dormitories can be easily reached within 20 min. from the city campus
by S-Bahn (commuter train). The rooms are equipped with table, chair, bed, wardrobe/
closet, bookshelf and a washbasin. There is a common kitchen for all the members of an
apartment. You must bring your own dishes with you or buy them in Germany. There are
also toilets and showers on each floor.

Please note: Bed-linen and coverlets are not provided! However, it is best to buy them
once you are here.

The rent for a room in a dormitory is DM 300 to 450 per month. It has to be paid by
standing order (all further information about this you will receive at the Office of
International Affairs after your arrival). Rooms can only be rented for a whole month. All
students living in the dormitories have to pay a deposit of DM 500. This has to be paid into
a bank on the forms provided before you will be allowed to move in. You will receive the
necessary forms as part of your Housing Information Package which will be sent to
the address you have given in your application form some four weeks prior to the
time when you move in.

Remember that you can only move into your room on Mondays to Fridays (unless it is a
holiday). Should you wish to come to Stuttgart before your contract for your room begins
or at the weekend, you can stay overnight at one of the Guest Houses for Young People
or at the Youth Hostel (see next paragraph for further information).


Temporary Accommodation for Young People

Should you come to Stuttgart at a time when you can not move into your dormitory room
immediately, you can stay one or two nights at the youth hostel or at one of the guest
houses for young people run by the Jugendsozialwerk.

The address of the Youth Hostel in Stuttgart is:

Jugendherberge Stuttgart
Haussmannstr. 27
Phone: ++49 711-24 15 83

telephone reservations. The Youth Hostel is very nice and very conveniently located
(approx. 10 min. on foot from the Central Bus and Railway Stations).

You can reach the Youth Hostel by taking the streetcar from within the Central Railway
Station or Hauptbahnhof at the stop called Arnulf-Klett-Platz (follow the sign with a white
U on a blue background). Buy a ticket at one of the orange ticket machines: 1 zone. Take
the streetcar U15 travelling in the direction of Heumaden-Sillenbuch. Get off at the stop
marked Eugensplatz. Walk down Kernerstrasse (downhill) and follow the youth hostel
sign.

The address of the Guest House run by the Jugendsozialwerk is:
Jugendsozialwerk
Richard-Wagner-Str. 2,
phone: ++49 711-24 11 32
fax: ++49 711-23 61 10
The price of a single or double room lies between DM 30,-- and DM 45,-- with breakfast.
Rooms can be reserved in advance. However, the Guest House is situated somewhat
outside of the city centre.

You can reach the Guest House by taking the streetcar from within the Hauptbahnhof at
the stop called Arnulf-Klett-Platz (follow the sign with a white U on a blue background).
Buy a ticket at one of the orange ticket machines: 1 zone. Take the streetcar U15
travelling in the direction of Heumaden-Sillenbuch. Get off at the stop marked
Bubenbad. On your right you will find the Richard-Wagner-Straße and the first house on
the right hand side is the Guest House of the Jugendsozialwerk.


Health Insurance

At registration, all students must demonstrate proof of health insurance as prescribed by
German law. Those students who fulfil one of the following conditions can obtain the
necessary proof at one of the local health insurance companies (the Office of International
Affairs will provide you with the addresses upon your arrival).

EU-Citizens:

EU-Citizens are required to present Form E109 or Form E111 which they can obtain from
their home health insurance company. Upon presentation of this form at one of the local
health insurance companies the holder will be presented a Certificate of Sickness
Insurance called a Krankenschein. This certificate must be presented to the doctor,
dentist or at a hospital. If you fail to do so you will be expected to pay in cash. At the same
time, you will be given a Krankenversicherungsnachweis which you will need for
registration at the university. Further information can be found in the Welcome-Guide
which either your SOCRATES Student Advisor will give you on arrival in Stuttgart or which
you will receive from Ms. Burger at the Office of International Affairs.

Visiting Students from the USA, Canada, Australia and other non-EU-Citizens:

The local health insurance companies in Stuttgart can exempt you from the compulsory
insurance providing you can demonstrate that you have equivalent coverage from a health

Office of International Affairs                                           General Information


insurance in your own country. However, to avoid financial difficulties because you will be
expected to pay cash straight away and then claim from your own insurance company
yourself, we urgently recommend that you obtain a low-priced health insurance for
students in Stuttgart. It costs about DM 95 per month and covers medical treatment by a
doctor (inclusively dentist) as well as hospital treatment. This insurance also has the
advantage that you do not have to pay for treatment in advance because the insurance
company settles directly with the doctor. Further information can be found in the
Welcome-Guide which you will receive from Ms. Burger at the Office of International
Affairs or from your SOCRATES Student Advisor.

The health insurance for students takes effect at the beginning of the Winter Semester (1
October) or the Summer Semester (1 April). Therefore we recommend that students
participating in the German Intensive Course purchase a travel sickness insurance in
their home country for the month of September or March respectively.


Medical Care

German universities do not provide medical service on campus. Like all other persons with
health insurance, students have a free choice among those doctors who have been
registered by the health insurance company. As mentioned under the paragraph Health
Insurance, health insurance companies that offer sickness insurance for students settle
directly with the doctor, dentist or hospital.

If a student has a psychological problem, it is possible to receive assistance from the
Psychological Consulting Service of the Student Union Psychologische
Beratungsdienst des Studentenwerks free of charge. The address can be found in the
Welcome-Guide or can be obtained from the Office of International Affairs.


Public Transport

Public transport in the Stuttgart region is very good so it is not essential to have a car.
There is an extensive underground system called the S-Bahn, a streetcar system, the U-
Bahn, and buses. The airport is about thirty minutes away from the Hauptbahnhof by S-
Bahn. It takes about ten minutes on foot to reach the City Centre Campus from the
Hauptbahnhof or the stop called Stadtmitte. The S-Bahn stops in the middle of the
Vaihingen Campus. This stop is called Universität. It is ten minutes away from the
Hauptbahnhof on the S1 heading for Herrenberg or the S2 and S3 heading for Vaihingen
or Flughafen. Students who live on the campus in Ludwigsburg take the S4 heading for
Marbach and get off at the station Favoritepark. The S-Bahn ride takes 20 minutes and
requires a ticket with three zones. The dormitories in Ludwigsburg are five minutes away
from the S-Bahn station Favoritepark. Students who have lectures on both the City Centre
Campus and the one in Vaihingen should purchase a Semester Ticket,
Semesterfahrkarte, which is valid for the whole semester and costs about DM 290 (two
zones). Further information is available at The Office of International Affairs.

Banking

Cash is still frequently used in Germany. Credit cards (Mastercard, Visa etc.) are not
accepted everywhere. You should always check before you order your meal etc., and
make sure that you have sufficient cash with you.

All visiting students need a bank account because rent for a dormitory room can only be
paid for by standing order. The SOCRATES Student Advisor or The Office of International
Affairs can assist you in choosing a suitable bank. Tips can also be found in the Welcome
Guide.


Telephoning

The code for phoning Stuttgart from abroad is as follows: ++49-711-phone number
(++ = the dialling code for a foreign country; 49 = the area code for Germany; 711 = the
local dialling code, e.g. Stuttgart)
If you are phoning within Germany add a 0 to the local dialling code e.g. Stuttgart would
be: 0711 + phone number

If you are dialling a number in Stuttgart from within Stuttgart you do not need the local
area code. To phone from a public telephone box you will need DM 0,20 (2 x 10
Pfennige). Telephone Cards are available priced DM 12 or DM 50. There is a telephone
on each floor in the dormitory. You can also have your own telephone in your dormitory
room. We recommend that you buy a telephone yourself at a cost of about DM 50
depending upon the model chosen. The TELEKOM charges around DM 30 per month for
the connection. This is in addition to the charges for the individual calls.



The City of Stuttgart

Stuttgart, which is the state capital of Baden-Württemberg, has a population of about
560.000. Stuttgart lies in a basin. The lowest point is the River Neckar, which is about 200
metres above sea-level, and the highest is at Stuttgart-Vaihingen at approx. 550 metres.

Stuttgart is the cultural centre of the State of Baden-Württemberg with a wealth of theatres
and concert halls. It is also the home of the world-famous ballet and there are museums
and art-galleries as well as academies of music and art. "Miss Saigon" is being performed
in one of the music halls and “Beauty and the Beast” in the other. Every year thousands
come from far and near to enjoy the Cannstatter Volksfest, a public festival with a huge
amusement park which takes place at the end of September on the common called the
Cannstatter Wasen. In the course of time this festival has become second only to the
Oktoberfest in Munich.

Stuttgart is also one of the largest agriculture, fruit and viticulture centres in the Federal
Republic. Many of the most renown companies like Mercedes-Benz and Bosch have
factories here. In addition, there are numerous smaller companies involved in the
production of machine tools, textiles and clothes, precision instruments, food and luxury
items. There are also companies that specialise in woodworking, leather processing and
making shoes or musical instruments as well as a number of large breweries. There is

also a small paper and chemical industry. Over 300 publishing houses and a highly
developed graphic industry has given Stuttgart the reputation of being Germany's "Book
Town" No 1.


Climate

The climate in Stuttgart is moderate and the average annual temperature is 10 °C. The
relatively warm summers and mild winters are characteristic of the Stuttgart climate.
However, it is quite possible that the temperature in winter will go far below freezing-point
which makes it necessary to have winter clothes as well as rainproof clothing.

B.        Information for Students in Business Administration


1.        Business Administration with a Technical Orientation


This specific field of study has been taught ever since it was first established in the Winter
Semester 1974/75. The Universität Stuttgart is the only university in all of Germany
offering this unique course of studies with additional training in technical subjects.
Students of any level do have to take classes during their Stage 1 Studies
(„Grundstudium‟) and Stage 2 Studies („Hauptstudium‟)1 to enlarge their knowledge with
basic features from technical subjects. Experience has shown that this additional
qualification is largely sought for by companies intending to employ business school
graduates. The Management School has been able to successfully establish courses in
connection with some of the most famous Stuttgart institutes of the School of Engineering.

Besides the subjects of Business Administration, Economics and Jurisprudence, Stage 1
students do have to take classes with the School of Engineering which are an important
part of their study design. As Stage 2 students they do have to choose one technical
subject as their major out of a group of nine possible subjects (Building and Construction,
Electrical Engineering, Energy Engineering, Production Engineering, Informatics, Vehicle
Engineering, Logistics, Process Engineering, Transport and Communications).

Not only companies have realised the immense value of these interdisciplinary studies but
students have, too. The numbers for registration at the School of Management have been
steadily increasing. 1200 students make the “technically oriented" Business Administration
Studies one of the most important ones at Stuttgart University together with Aerospace
Engineering and Computer Science ranked fifth just behind Mechanical Engineering,
Architecture, Electrical Engineering as well as Building and Construction Engineering.
Each Winter Semester approximately 200 beginners are registered.

The departments who are presently teaching Business Administration are listed below:

 Department I: Business Administration and Human Resource Management
  (Prof. Dr. K.-F. Ackermann)
 Department II: Business Administration and Organisational Design
  (Prof. Dr. M. Reiß)
 Department III: Business Administration and Finance
  (n.n.)
 Department IV: Business Administration, Strategic Management and Corporate
  Planning
  (Prof. Dr. E. Zahn)
 Department V: Business Administration and Management Accounting
  (Prof. Dr. P. Horváth)
 Department VI: Business Administration, Business-to-Business Marketing and
  Purchasing
  (Prof. Dr. U. Arnold)

3.     Information for all ERASMUS Exchange Students at the Business
       School


The ERASMUS programme supports the exchange of students throughout Europe on a
basis of acknowledging academic work that has been credited at the foreign/ exchange
university for their study at the home university.

However, German universities differ quite a lot from the system and courses you are used
to at your home university. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that you try to get all the
information you need mostly by yourself. This means, for example, that you select the
courses you will have to take according to your home university from the large choice that
we provide and that you will have to figure out your own time-table. Which course you
would like to choose is completely up to you. You may choose those courses which you

Information Package                                                                       23
Faculty of History, Social Sciences and EconomicsBusiness Administration


like most. There are separate agreements between your individual home universities and
the Universität Stuttgart on the number of courses and credits that you need. For more
information on what you need please ask your own university/ advisor before your stay in
Stuttgart.

While planning a year abroad or during your stay at a university abroad a lot of questions
or problems may arise which other students have also experienced and solved
successfully. Therefore, each ERASMUS exchange student in Stuttgart will be given the
name and address of a student from the Universität Stuttgart who will then be able to
assist you whenever necessary to make your stay and life easier for you.


4.     Information about the European Credit Transfer System at the
       Business School


After your arrival in Stuttgart you will be provided with the courses you can choose and we
will also assist you with arranging your time-table successfully. We would, however, be
very pleased if you figured out an agreement with your home university on what you
should take part in, how many credits you need and so on before arriving here (Learning
Agreement).

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) will be the basis for transferring our marks
into marks and credits that you will need. We will differentiate between the amount of work
on the one side and the key to transfer the credits on the other. ECTS defines the
workload of a German student with 60 credits per year. You will find the detailed
correlation between the individual course and the credits you will be given in PART C. Our
crediting system usually follows the modes listed below: (SWS = weekly hours per
semester)

                3.5 credits for 2 SWS Lecture (L) with an additional exam
                7.5 credits for 2 SWS Exercise (E) or Seminar (S)

You may find the table helpful for the credit transfer and the grades in your system

5.      Information for EMBS Students


The European Master of Business Sciences (EMBS) programme is a carefully designed
scheme of study leading to a qualification of Master's standard. An integral part of the
programme is a study year abroad.

The scheme is collectively administered by a consortium of European universities and
business schools and aims to meet the requirements for the academic education of
business and management graduates in Europe. Close cooperation between the
institutions involved and a jointly agreed programme structure provides a programme of
academic excellence, leading to full competence in another community language and an
in-depth understanding of the business environment and culture of other European
countries.

Unlike MBA programmes, the EMBS scheme is not aimed at graduates in other disciplines
or practising managers, but at high calibre students who have completed the initial part of
a business and management degree scheme at one of the participating institutions. There
is ample evidence that the specific skills, insights and experience which the EMBS
programme provides are much in demand in the European employment markets.
Successful completion of the scheme also offers the possibility of studying for higher
degrees, including doctoral programmes.

The programme was established in the 1980's, and the first EMBS certificates were
awarded in 1992. The number of places available is strictly limited and there is very strong
competition for them.

The following institutions are members of the EMBS consortium:

    Universität Wien, Austria
    Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Brest, France
    Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Clermont, France
    Ecole Supérieure de Commerce Le Havre-Caen, France
    Institut d'Administration des Entreprises, Université de Lyon, France
    Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Montpellier, France

Faculty of History, Social Sciences and EconomicsBusiness Administration


Structure of the Scheme

The qualifying stage of the scheme is spent at what is referred to as a student's -'home
institution'. This is the university or business school at which a candidate is provided with
the basic grounding in business related subjects. At the Austrian and German universities
this stage is completed with the 'Vordiplom'/'Erste Diplomprüfung' examinations. At French
business schools it encompasses the 'Classes Préparatoires' and the first year of study,
while at UK universities it corresponds to the first two years of a Bachelor's degree
scheme.

Only the top 30% of students who have successfully completed this stage are eligible to
be considered as candidates for the second stage, the EMBS programme as such. This
includes a mandatory study period of at least one academic year abroad.

EMBS candidates are required to complete a total of 7 modules. Each module amounts to
the workload of approximately a third of an academic year - i.e. represents 20 ECTS
credits - and the courses involved are structured so as to allow a candidate to complete a
module within a single academic year. A module in European Affairs and a project paper
are compulsory for all candidates.

In addition, candidates select 5 subject modules from the following 9 options available:

-   Accountancy                                         -   Human Resources Management
-   Business Informatics                                -   Marketing
-   Economics                                           -   Production
-   Finance                                             -   Quantitative Methods
-   General and Strategic Management

The descriptions of the subject modules available are listed below. Also included are
details of the minimum requirements for completing a module.

At most two modules can be in the same subject area. European Affairs and at least two
of the other modules must be completed at a 'host institution' in another language area.
Modules are assessed on a five grade scale agreed by all institutions. Candidates are
generally not permitted to re-sit any of the examinations involved.

The Qualification

Successful candidates are awarded the consortium's EMBS Certificate. For outstanding
candidates this may be awarded 'with merit' or, in exceptional cases, 'with distinction'. The
Certificate is accompanied by an Academic Report which contains details of the modules
taken and the marks obtained. In parallel the respective home institutions grant nationally
recognised academic degrees to their students.

in brackets]:

          Preparatory Courses (19 SWS)
          Business Studies (18 SWS)
          Economics (14 SWS)

H6ST14g      Factory Planning I (Methoden der Fabrikplanung I)
Planning a factory does not only demand a profound knowledge about the design of work
stations and material flow, about technical and information-related processes, but it also
requires a suitable instrument to handle the "planning" in a target-oriented and consistent
way. Factory Planning is a problem definition, from which a multitude of single tasks
derives which are to be analysed and coordinated in accordance with the targets
established by the company. The focus of the lecture is both on the technical solution of
these single tasks and on the coordination of operations. The occurring problems are
being exemplified by a case study.

H7WT14j       Factory Planning II (Methoden der Fabrikplanung II)
Material flow is considered as a unit, in regard to public traffic network as well as to single
work stations. At the beginning the location needs to be chosen, then the long-term
planning of a company require, for example, a master plan for house building. The
determination of production facilities within single operation areas makes it possible to
calculate the necessary building volume. After defining the material flow you can join
together various areas to an optimum lay-out, using methods of operation research. Case
studies will emphasise this focus.
