The impact of AI on the music industry was the focus of Goodman’s ninth annual Business Matters event which took place last week.

Todd Green, Associate Professor of Marketing, virtually welcomed four panelists with diverse experiences to discuss this technological disruption as the next shock of the industry. During the first hour of the evening’s event, each of the panelists shared their unique insights on the positives and negatives of AI’s presence in the industry, the potential labelling of AI-created music, copyright laws and more. The event then concluded with a final half hour of audience questions. 

Thank you to our panelists Eric Alper, Chelsea M., Noah Mintz and Kirsten Robertson for being part of this insightful discussion.

Unlocking Opportunities: The International Business Fair Connects Talent and Industry
Time for our annual International Business Fair (IBF) recap! Renowned companies from diverse industries showcased their offerings at the IBF, a two-day event held both in-person at Reutlingen City Hall on March 19th and online on March 20th. For students of ESB Business School, the IBF served as a valuable opportunity to engage with potential employers, explore internship and entry-level job prospects, and expand professional networks.

Connecting Talent with Industry Leaders
The IBF facilitated meaningful interactions between students and company representatives. Through one-on-one interviews and company presentations, attendees discovered new organisations and learned about scholarship opportunities. Sofia, a BSc International Business student, expressed her enthusiasm: “I’ve discovered many new companies that I didn’t know about but whose sectors interest me a lot. I’ve also learned new things, like the fact that it’s possible to get scholarships.”

Fostering Collaboration and Talent Acquisition
Beyond recruitment, the IBF provided a platform for companies to engage with aspiring talent. Isabelle Schmidt, Associate SAP HANA & Analytics Consultant at IBM Germany, emphasized its significance: “The IBF is an excellent place for us to meet prospective candidates and to see from which backgrounds they come, which experiences they bring, and what they are interested in.”

The ESB Spirit: A Driving Force
A lot of the company representatives were ESB alumni themselves. Their success stories underscored the excellence of ESB’s training and the enduring ESB Spirit. Ann-Catrin Wagner, an MSc International Business Development (IBD) graduate now part of the Mercedes-Benz Management Consulting team, affirmed, “The ESB Spirit is very strong. It is still the international vibe that I loved about ESB. That’s why it is always nice to be back.”

Thank you to all of our students, the companies present, the ESB Career Center and our student organising team for making the IBF 2024 a huge success!

Eleven subjects at Lancaster University are in the world top 100 with Linguistics coming third, according to new rankings released today.
Updated each year, the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2024 are based on analysis of the reputation and research output of almost 5,000 institutions around the globe. This year, from this group of 5,000, 1,561 were ranked across 55 narrow subjects and five broad subject areas, creating more than 19,100 entries.

Rising to third place from tenth last year, Linguistics at Lancaster has consistently been a high performer in global and national league tables and the University has been at the forefront of Linguistics teaching and research for decades.

Whether making a difference in the lives of people with dyslexia or helping the NHS improve services, Lancaster’s world-leading Department of Linguistics and English Language examines how language works in learning, communication and within society.
Meanwhile, two other Lancaster University subjects also took world top 50 spots, with English Language and Literature ranking 38th and Marketing ranking between 21st and 50th.
Other high performers taking top 100 positions at Lancaster are:

  • Art and Design (51-100)
  • Modern Languages (72nd)
  • Environmental Sciences (joint 96th)
  • Accounting and Finance (joint 75th)
  • Business and Management Studies (joint 72nd)
  • Sociology (83rd)
  • Statistics and Operational Research (51-100)
  • Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (51-70)

Professor Simon Guy, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Global (Digital, International, Sustainability), said: “These outstanding individual subject results are indicative of the quality and breadth of excellence here at Lancaster. Although we are a proudly northern, campus-based University with a deep commitment to our region, our strategic partners span the globe from Germany to Indonesia. Thanks to the ambition and excellence of our people, Lancaster University is committed to having a positive impact across the world.”

Professor Jonathan Culpeper, the Head of the Department of Linguistics and English Language, said: “Our department benefits from the interdisciplinary ethos, willingness to engage with real-world issues and collaborative spirit that characterises Lancaster University. Above all, this result is testament to the creativity and sheer hard work of my colleagues. All this adds up to a department producing innovative research that makes a difference, and that draws attention from students and researchers from around the world.”

Wheels on Fire: The 2024 ESB Cycling for Charity Tour is on!
18 students from the BSc International Management Double Degree programme are currently on their way to raise funds on the ESB Relay Cycling for Charity bike tour. Ahead of them is a ride of 870 kilometres with 7,500 metres of ascent.

This year, the tour heads to Volonne in the south of France, where they will meet with students from all over Europe for the International Business Weekend (IBWE). The cyclists from the ESB Cycling for Charity bike tour traditionally receive a massive welcome from them at the end of the ride.

The students have been raising funds for a while now and will continue to do so throughout the tour with a range of activities on behalf of two charities which they have been supporting for many years:
The Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V. has worked for many years on behalf of children with cancer and their families at the Tübingen Children’s hospital. Integramus e.V. is an association from Reutlingen that is involved with orphans in Africa and Ukraine and provides support for integration in Germany.
