Festive kick-off to the start of cooperation
With more than 20 years of existence, the UE Campus in Iserlohn has a long university history to offer. Established as an entrepreneurial campus in the region and an integral part of in-company training, the campus’ already broad repertoire of modern business and sports degree programmes has now been complemented by a high-profile cooperation: Borussia Dortmund (BVB) – a globally recognised Bundesliga club and an integral part of Westphalian sports culture.
Since 1st of July 2022, the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) has been the first university in Germany to call itself a university partner of BVB. To celebrate this in a fitting manner, the “UE Sports Day” took place on 26th August at the Sports and Entrepreneurship Campus in Iserlohn. BVB legend and former national goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller personally answered questions about the new cooperation, hosted a sports quiz from which one of our students won two tickets for the derby in September, and answered numerous autograph and photo requests.
Our professor of sports management at UE, Thomas Rieger, is also pleased about the new educational cooperation with Borussia Dortmund: “Through the cooperation with BVB, we now have the opportunity to let our students participate very closely in the professional football world. They get insights into the business of an international football club and – just like at our sporting event – can exchange ideas with top managers and football legends and get tips from them.”
In addition to BVB, the UE at the Iserlohn campus also has other well-known cooperations with the Young Roosters, the Kangaroos Iserlohn, the Techniker Krankenkasse and the ai Fitness Club. These were also represented in large numbers on site and helped to make the event special with various interactive sports activities.
