Special website of the Schumpeter School
Dear members of the Schumpeter School,
this page collects information concerning studying and teaching at the Schumpeter School of Business and Economics during the current crisis. You will find tips and contact persons as well as current information.
We make every effort to keep the information provided here up to date, but please also refer to the other pages of the University for additional information.
Info page "Corona"
Campus, Lectures and Events
The winter semester 2020/21 takes place as a so-called "hybrid semester". Lectures are offered either in "Uni@Home" format or on campus.
Official requirements are continuously monitored. If the situation changes during the semester to the extent that attendance courses are no longer feasible, these will be replaced by courses in "Uni@Home" format. In any case, it is guaranteed that the relevant content is taught and that you can take your exams.
You can find out whether a lecture is held on campus or online in "StudiLöwe". There you will find the entire range of courses for the winter semester.
Further information on courses in the winter semester and additional regulations can be found here.
Students who are registered for examinations in the summer semester 2020 will be informed about the further procedure, the examination room and seat and any special details via their "@uni-wuppertal.de" e-mail address approx. 5 days before the examination.
General information on participation in exams in the summer semester can be found here.
Inspection of examinations
Inspection dates can be offered for the examinations of the first examination period of the winter semester 2019/20, for which no inspection could take place before the beginning of the corona-related restrictions. You can find relevant information on the pages of the respective chairs.
The submission of seminar papers is possible by sending them via snail mail to the respective chair or supervisor within the deadline, if a submission on site is not possible.
Students of the Schumpeter School can also hand in their thesis by sending it in due time via snail mail to the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Prüfungsamt Wirtschaftswissenschaft, Gaußstr. 20, 42119 Wuppertal, Germany, if a submission on site is not possible.
Please note that the formal requirements (according to Information 3/2016 of the Examination Committee) must be observed in any case. In particular:
"The final thesis must be submitted in duplicate. It must have a firm binding (no ring binding). An electronic version of the thesis as well as a single copy of any data material used in an empirical thesis must be attached to the printed version in Word or PDF format for plagiarism checking on a CD or DVD-ROM. The CD or DVD must be labelled and affixed to the thesis; printing houses usually have the appropriate tools for this purpose. Internet sources used must also be saved on the data medium."
Exception: Bachelor Colloquium
Bachelor colloquia at the end of the Bachelor thesis can still be scheduled under certain circumstances. Please contact the respective chair for this.
Announcement of grades
The announcement of grades is still carried out via the WUSEL or StudiLöwe portals, but the posting of lists of grades in the glass cases of the examination office is currently only carried out to a very limited extent.
International students and exchange students
Foreign students and enrolled exchange students of foreign universities in the summer semester 2020, who have to stay at their respective home countries due to corona protection measures during the lecture period and the examination period in the current semester, can apply for a special examination date in the form of a video examination at the end of the summer semester.
Students who were registered for examinations in the second examination period of the winter semester 2019/20 and who would have completed their degree immediately if they had passed, can therefore apply for a special oral examination date. This only applies to students who are not continuing their studies at the University of Wuppertal. The application can be made informally to the examination board of the faculty with justification.
The counselling and support services offered by the central institutions of the School continue to operate, but it is not possible to offer consultation hours. Please contact the appropriate offices by e-mail, depending on your request:
The counselling and support services of the individual chairs are coordinated individually by them. You will find information on the individual pages:
Applications and Deadlines
Applications to the Examination Board, in particular an application to extend the time allowed for the completion of a thesis for a valid reason, can still be submitted in the usual way via the Examination Office. The processing is currently ensured, but there may be shorter waiting times.Other applications and master applications will of course continue to be processed. Only consultation hours cannot be offered at present. Please contact the relevant offices by e-mail if you have any questions. Currently valid deadlines remain valid in principle. If you have any queries, please contact the relevant offices.
