In order to improve the study conditions for our students, the Mercator School of Management has invested study fees into 20 academic assistant positions that have been allocated to the different chairs in relation to their quantitative teaching performance. Academic assistants serve as the main link between students and chairs. In return, the chairs agree to a sanctioned service commitment, which formulates the main aims of the program.
The chairs that participate in the program sign a commitment which guarantees for the following services:
It takes 4 weeks maximum for the exam results to be published; the chairs strive to correct every exam within 2 weeks. Every chair permits the students access to their exam. In case of 3rd attempts an early assessment will be made possible.
After the grade has been released by the examination office, students are given the opportunity of a feedback meeting.
Numbers of seminar slots will not be limited - in case of shortages the chairs offer a second seminar. Every seminar qualifies as preparation for a diploma or master thesis.
On condition that all examination requirements are fulfilled, students receive a thesis topic within 6 weeks.
During office hours (Monday to Friday), students will receive a response to their emails within 24 hours. If an answer via email is not possible, a conversation via telephone or in person will be arranged promptly.
Lecture materials are available on the Internet or in the copy shop at least one week before the lecture starts. The chairs do not sell materials.
If didactically useful, trainings will be offered by the chairs. Moreover, the chairs supervise tutorials and adjust the student tutors' performance to their own teaching program.
All students can ask their supervisors for a feedback talk about their seminar papers or Bachelor/Master theses in order to identify shortcomings and improve their performance in future scientific writing.
