People & Institutions University Management

Macromedia University Management

Macromedia University is governed in accordance with a binding constitution, the principle of which is close cooperation between representatives from teaching and administration on all levels. The highest body is the Executive board. Here, all strategic decisions are made jointly in an exchange between the University President, the Vice President University Management and the Vice President Teaching and Faculty.

The President

The President represents the university in public. Internally, he ensures the smooth interaction of all organs. He is responsible for all academic policy and research matters, in particular for the academic policy programme, the new and further development of research and study programmes and their quality assurance in academic terms.

“Our university belongs at the heart of society. We want to shape sustainable change: as a player in applied research and a partner to industry and the scientific community, as a committed corporate citizen and as an education provider who enables students to participate successfully and responsibly in the living and working environments of the future. We call this holistic aspiration: mPower.”

The Vice President Teaching and Faculty

The Vice President Teaching and Faculty is responsible for the area of teaching and faculty development. In particular, this includes the quality assurance of the central examination system, as well as the implementation of teaching and the academic services accompanying teaching.

“We live in a digitalised, globalised, highly accelerated society, which constantly and spontaneously places new demands on all of us. We want to respond to this development with new ways of learning and teaching. By actively developing their future skills, we aim to empower our graduates to face new challenges independently, self-confidently, creatively and in teams – so that learning processes become educational processes.”

The Vice President Research, Creative Arts and Knowledge Transfer

The Vice President Research, Creative Arts and Knowledge Transfer is responsible for quality assurance in the areas of research, artistic practice and knowledge transfer and the development of performance in these areas at both institutional and individual level.

“Research drives innovation and finds solutions to pressing global challenges and art invites the viewer to reflect on personal, societal or universal issues, fostering empathy, understanding and critical thinking. At our university, both elements form a powerful synergy with public impact that leads us towards a future centred on humanity, social responsibility and emotional well-being.“
Prof. Dr. Florian Haumer, Vice President Research, Creative Arts and Knowledge Transfer,

The Vice President University Management
