Leadership and Committees
Are you looking for someone to speak to or would you like to get involved yourself with the development of and activities in the Department? The departmental management, board of examiners and other committees in the Department of Economics are introduced here.
The university committees meet in public, which means that any member of Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences may attend any individual committee meeting.

The Student Council - known as FasRa - is the name of the committee that is responsible for representing the students in the department. That means we represent your interests. At present our committee consists of students from the Department of Economics. For better networking, we work closely with the Student Council of our neighbouring department, the Department of Applied Human Sciences.
- to improve structures and networking on campus,
- to support your scientific education,
- to be your points of contact for any concerns regarding your studies,
- to support the work in your working groups,
- to coordinate interdisciplinary activity in the departments,
- to work together with representatives of the departmental councils, other student representatives and the student council,
- to coordinate with student representatives across Germany,
- to create and maintain semester highlights.
Every year in the summer semester the representatives are elected for one year, that is two semesters. All students have active and passive voting rights, which means that you too can stand for election. We see ourselves as a committee of students for students, which is why everyone is welcome at our meetings.

The Student Representatives undertake the following tasks on your behalf:
- University Policy
According to the Higher Education Act of the State of Saxony-Anhalt, student representatives look after the subject related interests and university policy interests of the students in their department: they advise the students and contribute to promoting students’ interests. On a larger scale, of course, all university policy concerns us to an extent. Even if you are not really interested in it, you are directly or indirectly affected by the political decisions that are made.
If you are dissatisfied and would like to have a grumble, you can feel free to contact us. That is because one of our main tasks is to assert student interests, to point out failings at the university and to exercise constructive criticism towards professors and other managers, in order to improve teaching quality.
- University culture
To ensure that cultural and sporting events take place in Stendal too, financial support is one of the responsibilities of the FasRa. Suggestions are always welcome here too. Special cultural highlights include the University Ball, Days of Reflection and the Summer Festival. Incidentally: we can always make use of a few creative minds and helping hands!
- Administering the finances of the Student Council
Have you ever wondered where your semester fee goes? Some of it is made available to the FasRa for spending that benefits the students. This includes, for example, spending on the University Ball, the Summer Festival and other projects run by and for students.
