At the second semester opening ceremony this year, around 100 freshmen of the German-language Bachelor’s programmes in Business Psychology and General Management were welcomed today by numerous guests from their deans.

In her opening speech, Prof Dr Irene López, Dean of Business Psychology, welcomed the students on behalf of the Cologne Business School and congratulated them on their decision to study for a Bachelor’s degree: “With the special day of your start of studies today, you are certainly very excited and full of expectations as you should be! I would like to take this opportunity to build on your anticipation and can assure you that, in addition to lectures, seminars, internships and excursions, the discovery journey around the campus has much more in store for you – or as Hermann Hesse’s poem reveals: “And every beginning has its own magic”.

Elfi Scho-Antwerpes, Mayor of the City of Cologne, was one of the guest speakers at this year’s ceremony: “I very much hope that you will all feel at home here in Cologne and that your studies at the CBS will be an important step towards making your dreams come true. I wish you all the best for your future with us in Cologne”. Ralf Hengels (Board Member Human Resources Nestlé Deutschland AG) and Moritz Doernemann (Managing Director Deutsche Bank) also addressed the new students as guest speakers.Following the official speeches, the Cologne Business School invited its guests to a get-together in the Orangery of the Flora Köln.
