As Managing Director and Chancellor, Prof. Julia Sander is responsible for the university’s entire administration, including Academic Services, Finance, IT, Human Resources, Legal and Real Estate. She will continue to bring forward both the consolidation and the process of strategic development already begun at the EBS and, together with the University Management Board, will be promoting the topics of the future, long-term profile raising, campus development and the digitisation offensive.
Sander studied business administration at the LMU Munich and subsequently completed her doctorate at the University of St. Gallen on the subject of organisations’ innovative ability. After several years as a management consultant, she moved to the SRH Fernhochschule in Riedlingen in 2000 as a professor and developed the educational institution into a formative quality leader for distance learning courses, since 2002 as rector and from 2008 also as managing director. She was appointed to the Executive Board of COGNOS AG in January 2016, where she was responsible for digitisation and professional clients. Now she has returned to SRH. “Universities are network hubs for digitization and innovation. At EBS, we also have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. I look forward to further developing these strengths together with the University’s Managment Board and the Senate,” says Sander.
