Conference on the Future of Learning Factories

ESB Business School hosted the annual meeting of the International Association of Learning Factories “Conference on the Future of Learning Factories”

Congratulations to our Werk150 // ESB Business School, Hochschule Reutlingen on successfully hosting the 13th conference of the International Association of Learning Factories! From 9 to 11 May, over 140 researchers from 24 countries gathered at Reutlingen University, presenting over 100 research papers on the present and future role of learning factories in research and education.

“In learning factories such as ESB’s Werk150, the traditional lecture setting is integrated into the factory environment,” stated Eberhard Abele, Prof.Dr.-Ing, founder of the Prozesslernfabrik at Technische Universität Darmstadt, during his opening lecture. In the past, universities were distant from practical applications, inundating students studying production and logistics processes with theoretical knowledge, leading to a jarring transition into their careers.

WiWo-Ranking 2023 Business Administration – ESB Business School continues its winning streak

14.5 percent of human resources managers in Germany named ESB Business School when asked which universities and universities of applied sciences they prefer to recruit from.

Professor Dr Christoph Binder, Dean of ESB Business School, notes: “For newcomers to business administration, studying at ESB Business School is a very good choice because ESB graduates have had a very good reputation among human resources managers for many years. This has been once again convincingly confirmed by the WiWo-Ranking 2023.
