Inaugural lectures

The inaugural lectures at Nuremberg Tech’s Faculty of Business Administration came about as the result of an initiative by the former Dean, Prof. Roland Gegner, in 2012. During this time, all new professors at Nuremberg Tech present themselves by giving a specialist introductory lecture to their colleagues, students, and guests from outside the university.
