The Senate and Board of Governors of the EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht have convened a Presidential Council until the election of a new President. The Council, which will commence work after the leaving of Prof. Dr Ogorek on July 1, 2020 from the SRH University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg, will assume the duties of the President until the appointment of a new President.

The Presidential Council will represent EBS Universität until the election of a new President and will perform the duties of the President. In addition to the Council Chairman, Prof. Henning Werner, the Council consists of Dr Dorothée Hofer (Managing Director EBS Universität), Prof. Christian Landau (Dean EBS Business School) and Prof. Ulrich Segna (Dean EBS Law School). The search for a suitable President remains unaffected.

In its meeting on 16 June 2020, the University Council of EBS Universität unanimously elected Prof. Werner as Chairman of the Presidential Council, as reported by its Chairman, former Minister of State Dr Jörg-Uwe Hahn. In its regular meeting on 30 June 2020 this election was confirmed by the Senate of EBS Universität.

Prof. Werner looks back on many years of university experience as Dean of the Faculty of Economics at SRH University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg. He is also a member of the Accreditation Committee of the German Science Council.

“With the President’s Council under the leadership of Prof. Werner, we are ensuring that EBS Universität’ successful course will be maintained even after the departure of Prof. Ogorek”, said Dr Hahn, Chairman of the Board of Governors. “Thanks to his many years of experience in the university environment, Prof. Werner is the ideal person to ensure a smooth transition and to set the course for the future,” adds Dr Hofer.
