The president and vice president of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences in Germany will visit Missouri Southern on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 17-18.
Ansbach University, located in the Free State of Bavaria and in the metropolitan region of Nuremberg, is Missouri Southern’s oldest exchange university with a bilateral partnership dating back to 1997. Ansbach has an enrollment of 2,800 and 55 full-time faculty.
President Ute Ambrosius, Vice President Sascha Müller-Feuerstein and Simon Gollisch, from the business school, will be finalizing details for a German-American Certificate in Business with the MSSU Robert Plaster School of Business. This will be the first step toward a joint master’s degree between MSSU and Ansbach.
Dr. John Groesbeck, dean of the Plaster School of Business; Dr. Chad Stebbins, director of the Institute of International Studies; and Dr. Chris Moos, associate professor of international business, visited Ansbach last year to begin the discussions for a joint certificate.
Three students from Ansbach University are attending MSSU this semester through the bilateral partnership. Ansbach has sent as many as a dozen students to MSSU in previous semesters.
