FHDW is gold sponsor of the Paderborn+Höxter Junior Chamber of Commerce

The Fachhochschule der Wirtschaft (FHDW) and the Wirtschaftsjunioren Paderborn+Höxter will be working even more closely together in future. The FHDW has become a Gold Partner of the largest business network in the region.

Gold status is the highest possible partnership option with the Paderborn+Höxter Junior Chamber and includes agreements on extensive marketing measures – from joint mailings to banners and links on the homepage to presentation stands at events.

“We are very pleased about the cooperation because the university of applied sciences has an incredible amount of expertise and imparts this in a high quality. Our aim is to intensify networking between the university and the companies. To this end, we want to organize joint marketing measures and events,” says Philipp Frahmke, Chairman of the Paderborn+Höxter Junior Chamber.

The connection between the FHDW, which was founded in Paderborn in 1993, and the Wirtschaftsjunioren is fitting, as some of the 300 or so local WJ members have graduated from the university. “For us, the connection with entrepreneurs is essential and, with regard to our students, a great opportunity to build up a network in the business world at an early stage,” emphasizes Stefan Nieland, President of the FHDW. The University of Applied Sciences has five campuses in North Rhine-Westphalia and offers part-time Master’s and dual Bachelor’s degree programs in Business Informatics, Applied Informatics and Business Administration. As part of the dual study courses, the private and state-recognized university works together with permanent partner companies.

As part of the gold partnership, it is planned that professors from the FHDW will be present with their expertise and competence as guest speakers and lecturers at the events, seminars and functions of the Paderborn+Höxter Junior Chamber. In addition, the modern rooms of the University of Applied Sciences can be used as event venues. “We are looking forward to filling this young partnership with life and developing it further. The resulting transfer of knowledge and experience is a win-win situation for both sides,” Nieland and Frahmke are certain.
