Lancaster University Leipzig welcomes new Academic Dean – Prof Dr. Constantin Blome! Prior to joining LU Leipzig, Prof Blome worked with universities across the world including UC Louvain in Belgium, University of Sussex in the UK and Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada.
When asked what attracted him about LU Leipzig, he said:
‘Lancaster University Leipzig combines for me the best things of several worlds: world class reputation for research, highly respected degree programmes and a dedicated and diverse student body. If LU Leipzig would not already exist, one really should invent it! 65 different nationalities represented in the first 100 students is particularly in Germany an exception. Although relatively new, the interest of industry for our management and computer science students is beyond expectations. My vision for our campus is to combine Lancaster University's strengths and traditions with the opportunities of the most forward thinking cities in Germany. Therefore, our education and research is fresh, individual and groundbreaking.’
‘Without Lancaster University Leipzig I probably would have never returned to work in Germany, but who can miss an exciting project like this one! Although we're still the new kids on the block, it's clear that Lancaster University Leipzig will be a remarkable place where students, faculty and industry can meet and exchange for setting the path for a better future!’
The whole Team at Lancaster University Leipzig is looking forward to working with Prof Blome and growing the LU Leipzig campus!
