Die Automobilindustrie verzeichnet seit Jahresbeginn nicht nur bei den Verkaufszahlen enorme Einbußen: Aus unserer aktuellen Analyse geht hervor, dass auch das allgemeine Interesse an Autos, gemessen am  Besucheraufkommen auf den Hersteller-Websites, deutlich gesunken ist. In einer studienplanergänzenden Projektarbeit ermittelten wir den Website-Traffic der 15 am stärksten in Deutschland vertretenen Automarken. Nach kontinuierlich sinkenden Zahlen seit Anfang des Jahres verbuchen die Hersteller ab Mai 2020 jedoch wieder einen deutlichen Anstieg der Website-Aufrufe.

 Am stärksten ging das Interesse an der Webseite des Herstellers Nissan zurück: Die Marke verzeichnete im April 65 Prozent weniger Webseiten-Gästen als noch im Monat zuvor. Die Seiten der Autobauer Opel (-59 Prozent) und Peugeot (-46 Prozent) waren ebenfalls mit am meisten betroffen.

Auch die Zahl der KFZ-Neuzulassungen in Deutschland sank nach Angaben des Kraftfahrt-Bundesamts (KBA) von Anfang des Jahres bis April 2020 kontinuierlich. Wie wenigsten Neuzulassungen gab es im April: Verglichen mit März fiel die Zahl der Neuzulassungen im vierten Jahresmonat um fast die Hälfte (-45 Prozent). Im Mai 2020 hingegen stieg die Anzahl der zugelassenen Fahrzeuge um rund 40 Prozent an.

Über die Untersuchung

Die Auswahl der am stärksten vertretenen Autohersteller beruht auf der aktuellen Statistik des Kraftfahrt-Bundesamts (KBA) zum Fahrzeugbestand in Deutschland. Mithilfe des Traffic-Analyse-Tools Similarweb wurde die Zahl der Seitenaufrufe auf die deutschen Hersteller-Homepages für Januar bis Mai 2020 ermittelt. Die Zahl der Neuzulassungen basiert ebenfalls auf den Angaben des KBA.

Berlin, 4 June 2020 – Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) recently became an official signatory of the ‘United Nations – Principles for Responsible Management Education’ (UN-PRME) global initiative.

Launched in 2007, the UN-PRME is a platform designed to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, to equip business students with the understanding and ability to deliver economic, social and environmental value.

With over 650 signatories worldwide, UN-PRME has become the most robust and innovative, initiative between the United Nations and management-related higher education institutions. The aim is to foster learning and best practices and, ultimately, to create sustainable value for business, the natural environment and society at large.

By joining UN-PRME, BSBI commits to embracing the six founding principles for responsible management education — purpose, values, method, research, partnership and dialogue.

Professor Dr J. Manuel Barriga, MBA Programme Leader at BSBI, said: “It’s a great pleasure to be part of this project. This initiative shall provide students with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills around new sustainable business models, whilst helping them capitalise on the vibrant sustainability scene and opportunities of Berlin and Germany.”

UN-PRME's vision is to realise the Sustainable Development Goals through responsible management education. Business schools play a key role in shaping the mindsets and skills of future leaders and BSBI will now have the opportunity to support this mission.

Professor Kyriakos Kouveliotis, Provost and Chief Academic Officer at BSBI, said: “Our aim is to add more content and activities in our teaching around the issues central to this initiative. This will include introducing a new, more critical approach, to teaching and learning that focus on responsible management practices, as well as integrating these topics in our curriculum.”

Being part of the vast UN-PRME network will help BSBI contribute to transforming business and management education and developing responsible leaders for the future. The school will gain access to broader networks and guest speakers, who will share their professional experiences and students will now get the chance to broaden their contacts and advance their careers.

Professor Barriga represented BSBI at the recent German chapter of UN-PRME in February and commented: “Nowadays, some of the best business schools in the world are actively embracing the six principles in order to embed responsible approaches to business, society and nature.”

As a ‘basic’ signatory, BSBI will have to report on its activities every two years. Details and information about the school’s adherence to this initiative are available on the organisation’s website.

In vielen Ländern wurden Virologen, Epidemiologen und Gesundheitsminister aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie zu regelrechten Stars. Da ihre Entscheidungen seit dem Ausbruch des Virus maßgeblich den Alltag der Bevölkerung mitbestimmen, haben wir untersucht, wer von ihnen aktuell die meisten Fans in den sozialen Netzwerken hat. Dafür analysierten unsere Studierenden die Social Media-Profile der Minister und Mediziner in 20 der am stärksten betroffenen Länder. Im Fokus standen dabei die Plattformen Twitter, Instagram, Facebook und YouTube.

Gesundheitsminister

Besonders präsent sind die Minister auf Twitter sowie auf Instagram. Während viele auch eine offizielle Facebook-Seite führen, pflegen lediglich drei von ihnen einen Kanal auf YouTube: 

Medizinische Corona-Experten Der deutsche Virologe Christian Drosten ist für seine starke mediale Präsenz und seine Vorliebe für Twitter bekannt. Auch viele weitere Experten unserer Untersuchung nutzen das soziale Netzwerk besonders häufig . Über Instagram kommunizieren die Corona-Experten hingegen wenig, Facebook und YouTube gehören auch nicht zu den Favoriten:

 

Über die Untersuchung

Die Anzahl der Follower und Abonnenten sind auf dem Stand des 07. Mai 2020. Bei der Analyse wurden die Gesundheitsminister von 20 der am stärksten von Covid-19 betroffenen Länder untersucht. Die Auswahl der Mediziner, Virologen und Epidemiologen basiert auf deren offiziellen Positionen als regierungsberatende Experten bzw. ihrer starken medialen Präsenz.




In China gilt das Coronavirus zum ersten Mal seit Wochen als weitgehend eingedämmt, doch nun steigt die Sorge um die wirtschaftliche Situation des Landes. Unsere Studierenden haben im Rahmen eines außerschulischen Projektes ermittelt, für welche Exportgüter die Volksrepublik im internationalen Vergleich zuletzt führend war. Dafür analysierten sie über 1.600 Exportschlager aus knapp 100 anerkannten Handelskategorien der Vereinten Nationen, die kein anderer Staat in gleichem Wert exportierte.

Im Kuriositäten-Ranking landen unter anderem Produkte des täglichen Gebrauchs, beispielsweise Toilettenpapier, Pasta und Daunen.

 

 

In der Top Ten der chinesischen Exporte sind vor allem Güter aus den Sektoren Technik und Industrie, jedoch ist das Land nicht nur technisch stark aufgestellt: So ist China zum Beispiel auch Hauptexporteur für Schuhe und Laufsohlen.

Über die Untersuchung

Für die Analyse wurden über 1.600 Exportschlager aus knapp 100 anerkannten Handelskategorien der Vereinten Nationen untersucht. Nur die Exportgüter Chinas wurden berücksichtigt, die im Jahr 2017 im weltweiten Vergleich auf Platz eins lagen, d.h. kein anderes Land hat mehr Güter dieser Kategorie exportiert. Diese Daten wurden mithilfe von Factfish (www.factfish.com) erhoben. Im Anschluss wurden die Daten mithilfe der UN-Plattform Comtrade (www.comtrade.un.org) auf das Jahr 2018 aktualisiert. Umsatzstarke Produkte, deren Exportwert für 2018 noch nicht angegeben ist, wurden ausgeschlossen. Die Top Ten setzt sich somit aus den ersten zehn Produkten zusammen, deren Exportwert für das Jahr 2018 offiziell vorliegt. Die Wertangaben in US-Dollar wurden zu Angaben in Euro konvertiert (Stand 20.03.2020). Die Auswahl der Kuriositäten erfolgte nach eigener Einschätzung ihrer Relevanz.

Berlin, 4 March 2020 – Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) is excited to mark International Women’s Day (IWD) 2020 by hosting Val Racheeva, entrepreneur, in an inspiring talk at its Berlin campus on Thursday 5 March.

Val Racheeva is the founder of ‘The Female Founder Space’, a company that empowers female entrepreneurs to grow their own business; they provide interviews, online courses on business and leadership, as well as live workshops.

The talk will celebrate International Women’s Day by providing a focus on the world of business. Val will be sharing her experiences of overcoming adversity as a woman in business, as well as her successes, with students and staff at BSBI.

Val Racheeva is a change maker, entrepreneur and international key-note speaker. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, she gained broad experience in international higher education projects, as well as start-ups and international business consulting.

After moving to Berlin, she met many women who wanted to create start-ups, but lacked a supportive environment to do so. In 2014, she created The Female Founder Space and since then, the platform has organised more than 120 events, workshops, webinars, networking and co-working days. They currently operate in 13 European cities and 9 countries, reaching out to more than 6,000 women.

Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) is proud to welcome Val Racheeva to mark the importance of International Women’s Day with its students. The theme for IWD 2020 is ‘#EachforEqual,’ and BSBI is committed to promoting gender equality within its activities and teaching.

Val’s presentation will be followed by an open Q&A session, allowing students to make the most of this encounter, and to add great value to their learning at the institution.

Val Racheeva, CEO of Female Founder Space & Co-Publisher “The Female Founders Book”

Val Racheeva is a change maker, entrepreneur and international keynote speaker. She holds a Master degree in Political Science and Global Economy from the Technical University of Dresden. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, she gained broad experience in international higher education projects at TU Dresden, as well as start-up and international business consulting at BaselArea.swiss. However, she always had an inner calling toward something unknown and risky that can make a positive change in the world. Also, it was important to her that her work meets her inner values. After quitting her corporate job, she went on an entrepreneurial journey. Although the entrepreneurial road was very bumpy and she lived through many ups and downs, all these experiences made her the person she is now. She learned confidence, perseverance and what it means to be a leader.

After moving to Berlin, she met many women who wanted to create their own start-ups but lacked the supportive environment. She saw an opportunity where her experience, skills, vision, values and leadership could match together and at the same time contribute to a positive change. In 2014, she launched Female Founder Space, a global supportive community for female founders, entrepreneurs and creatives to kick-start and grow their business.

Within a short time, she was able to organize more than 120 events and workshops in 13 European cities. For many women, this became an inspirational moment to start their entrepreneurial careers. In 2016, she co-published “The Female Founders Book”, the first book in German language to cover 30 inspiring stories of successful female entrepreneurs from the German speaking-area, including a lot of extra information to guide women through the start-up process.

In spring 2020, Female Founder Space will launch an Online Academy for female entrepreneurs.  

“My vision is to create more prosperity in this world and to make a positive change in society and environment by helping more women to become entrepreneurs and bring their innovative ideas to life”, says Racheeva.

The dedicated website will give students a professional hub to launch their careers

Berlin, 19 February 2020 –
Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) has announced a partnership with JobTeaser, an international specialist in career services for young people in higher education.

Launched in France in 2008, JobTeaser provides dedicated solutions to companies for the recruitment of young talent, as well as free career centre software to higher education institutions across Europe.

With this partnership, JobTeaser becomes a careers centre partner for BSBI. The collaboration sees the creation of a dedicated online platform accessible to BSBI students and staff, exclusively managed by JobTeaser

 

Using this software, students can build their profile, search for jobs and unlock their future career. They will have access to the entire JobTeaser network, featuring over 60,000 recruiters and companies, showcasing all kinds of employment options with a wide range of partners. 

Dr Alexandra Gray, Academic Director at BSBI, said: “We are extremely proud to have secured this partnership for our students. JobTeaser has great experience in helping students to make a successful transition into work.

Young people coming to Germany to study are always looking to combine their education with gaining work experience. With JobTeaser our students will be able to find the right solution for them whilst searching for opportunities that suit their abilities, aspirations and availability.”

Adrien Ledoux, co-founder and CEO of JobTeaser, said: “We believe the transition between university and the professional world is very difficult for young talent, as many feel lost when it comes to choosing their career.

“We want to provide them with the right guidance tools, giving universities the opportunity to better support students as they enter the world of work, and helping businesses to adapt to a changing world by choosing the right talent, beyond their degree. 

The partnership was officially launched during an event hosted at BSBI’s campus in Potsdamer Strasse, on Tuesday 18 February. Job Teaser’s representatives and BSBI’s staff were on hand to introduce students to the platform and its many benefits.

Catherine Flynn, Student Services Manager at BSBI, said: “The launch was a great way to present the platform to our students. Thanks to JobTeaser’s presence on campus they could ask questions and explore the website, learning how to make the most of it.”

Die Technik-Branche gilt trotz ihrer Bemühungen um weibliche Fachkräfte als Männerdomäne. Unsere Studenten haben im Rahmen eines außerschulischen Projektes aktuell 20 Tech-Messen verglichen und untersucht, wie die Quote der weiblichen Speaker auf jeweils zehn deutschen und zehn internationalen Tech-Events im Jahr 2019 ausfiel. Dafür haben sie Events unter die Lupe genommen, zu denen mindestens 70 Speaker geladen waren.

Eine Übersicht der Ergebnisse finden Sie hier:

 

 

Insgesamt betrug im Jahr 2019 der Anteil weiblicher Speaker auf deutschen Tech-Messen 29 Prozent. Die Re:publika schneidet dabei am besten ab, die TOA und die Heureka schaffen es ebenfalls in die Top 3. Bei der IFA hingegen lag der Frauenanteil im letzten Jahr unter dem bundesweiten Durchschnitt.

 

 

Auf den Tech-Events außerhalb Deutschlands fällt der Anteil weiblicher Speaker mit nur 22 Prozent deutlich geringer aus. Mit immerhin 43 Prozent waren die meisten Frauen dabei auf der EmTech-Konferenz als Sprecherinnen geladen. Cisco Live! belegt mit einem Sprecherinnen-Anteil von nur vier Prozent den letzten Platz des Rankings.

Über die Untersuchung
Für die Analyse haben die Studierenden zehn deutsche und zehn internationale Tech-Messen untersucht, die im Jahr 2019 mindestens 70 Experten als Sprecher geladen haben. Es wurden die Gesamtzahl der Experten und die jeweilige Anzahl weiblicher bzw. männlicher Speaker erfasst, um deren Anteile zu berechnen.

Bei der Vielzahl der zu kaufenden Geschenke und Weihnachtsmarktbesuche kann das Taschengeld knapp werden. Abgesehen von den traditionellen Nebenjobs gibt es im Dezember auch die Möglichkeit, die Haushaltskasse im Weihnachtskostüm aufzubessern. So engagieren zum Beispiel Unternehmen, Vereine und Kitas anlässlich der Weihnachtsfeier Santa Claus-Darsteller, um feierliche Stimmung aufkommen zu lassen.

Da die Nachfrage nach selbsternannten Weihnachtsmännern zurzeit besonders hoch ist, haben die Studenten der BSBI ermittelt, wie es um deren Löhne bestellt ist. Dafür analysierten sie die Preise einer Weihnachtsmänner-Vermittlung in den 20 größten deutschen Städten. 

Eine Übersicht der Ergebnisse finden Sie hier:

Über die Untersuchung

Für die Analyse ermittelten die Studenten der BSBI die Preise für sämtliche Postleitgebiete in den 20 größten deutschen Städten über das Weihnachtsmannbüro und berechnete im Anschluss den Durchschnitt. Die Preise verstehen sich exklusive eventueller Abzüge der Agentur vom Schauspieler-Honorar für den Verwaltungsaufwand und die Vermittlungsgebühr.

Internationale Unternehmensberatungen gelten als herausfordernde Arbeitgeber und sind für Studierende mit einem wirtschaftlichen Abschluss eine spannende Möglichkeit, ihre Karriere zu starten. Studiengänge wie Business Administration and Economics sind ein geeignetes Sprungbrett in den Beruf eines Unternehmensberaters. 

Wir bieten Studierenden die Gelegenheit, außerhalb des Lehrplans an diversen Projekten mitzuwirken. Dieses extrakurrikulare Angebot wurde mit dem Ziel erarbeitet, Studierenden ein tiefergehendes Verständnis von den Strukturen des Arbeitsmarktes in Deutschland zu ermöglichen. Wie die Top 20 der internationalen Beratungsunternehmen, die auch in Deutschland tätig sind, als Arbeitgeber bei den eigenen Mitarbeitern abschneiden, waren das Thema des Projektes im Oktober 2019. Die hier präsentierten Ergebnisse sind von den Studierenden eigenständig recherchiert und ausgewertet worden. 

Die folgende Grafik veranschaulicht die Ergebnisse:

Über die Untersuchung

Für die Analyse wurden Mitarbeiter-Bewertungen der jeweiligen Unternehmensberatungen auf den Online-Portalen Glassdoor und Kununu erfasst. Die hier präsentierte Gesamtnote errechnet sich aus dem Durchschnitt der auf beiden Portalen vergebenen Sterne-Anzahl.
