Last week Prof. Dr. Marc Helmold took his Master Students on a field trip to visit the Berliner Kindl Schultheiss Brewery (BKSB). As the guide and master brewer Heiko Rohde told the group, this brewery is a high performing company with a market share of more than 50% in the area of Berlin. The students could see performance indicators to measure and improve a company, e.g. revenues, profitability, quality, productivity and output. In addition, the BKSB showed practical examples how to improve and sustain an excellent performance by a Quality Management System, the 5S Concept, Value Stream Mapping and Industry 4.0. At the end of the day, the students and Dr. Helmold had the chance to taste the products of the brewery.

Sometimes you see professional titles at universities but can hardly imagine what that person might actually do. That is why we asked some of our colleagues to describe exactly what their job involves. We start with Kerstin Janson, our research coordinator :)
Ever wondered about how to manage everything that is being said about a company online?
The world of online review is changing the way the hotel, event and tourism business manages the customers. Listening, analysing and engaging is a must for the best companies. 👂 But how should one manage the sheer amount of information out there about what is being said and reviewed about your products and company? 🤔
This week Philipp Möllers, Key Account Manager Destinations, explained to our students how TrustYou leverages this information to give companies unique insights.
Many thanks, it was very interesting!

Sustainability Research Rebooted
Dr. Elena Cavagnaro, professor of sustainability in hospitality and tourism at NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences and chair of the Academy of International Hospitality Research in the Netherlands visited Prof. Dr. Legrand at the Bad Honnef campus this past week to discuss common research possibilities. Together with Mr. Nicolas Dubrocard (1st from left), CEO of @ADST Solutions (www.solutionstourism.com/) and world expert in green certification, the trio has agreed to cooperate on cutting edge scientific research around topics in sustainability in light of the severe challenges (e.g. reduction of 90% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050) faced by the hospitality industry in this field.
Welcome to the campus! Last week, our campus Bad Honnef was visited by students of the Robert-Koch-Schule in Linz am Rhein. The students participated in a tourism workshop and learned about the international study programmes at IUBH.
Prof. Dr. Claudia Möller and student advisor Lydia Heinen again thank you very much for the nice exchange! 😊
Bad Honnef is buzzing!
Within the UNESCO Programme „Education for Sustainable Development“ we welcomed 50 children from a local elementary school on IUBH Campus Bad Honnef.

We are looking forward to the busy buzzing of our new campus residents!

How do we calculate the performance of tourism? 🤔
In terms of occupancy for hotel 🏨 and airlines ✈️, the more that lands, the more heads in beds, the better – so how can we resolve the issue of overtourism? What are the impacts of overtourism in terms of ‘quality’ of tourism at destination? Overtourism is a hot topic in 2018 and will continue to be as long as international tourism arrivals continue growing (1.2 billion now and counting).
Prof Legrand (Photo to the right) joined industry executives to explore sustainable tourism at Pillsbury forum at Cornell University discussing how to tackle this and many issues related to sustainability and tourism. 😊

Sharun Thomas and Dharma C. Kore were the winners at this semester’s IUBH 3 Minute Research Competition.
Students from a variety of disciplines including Hospitality Management, Health Care Management, Marketing Management, Transport and Logistics and International Management presented their work to an audience of fellow students, lecturers and a jury of 3 professors. The topics and areas of interest students chose provided a broad and fascinating insight into their work. The topics included the blockchain, transport platforms, influencer events in the movie industry, stem cell research, happiness redefined and more.
Shaurun’s work on “Real time location systems and asset tracking: New horizons for German hospitals, based on real case study analysis” was awarded the jury prize and the audience vote was won by Dharma for her work on the “The fate of human civilization: Stem Cell in Practise”.
The IUBH competition provides an opportunity for students to show their interests and abilities outside the lecture room format and to benefit in presenting their work to a larger audience and to defending their decisions to the jury. Despite the nerves before the event, all participants enjoyed themselves and justifiably felt proud of having taken up the challenge.
We look forward to next semester’s event and another interesting range of topics and projects.

For more insights, watch our video:
Together with Prof. Dr. Marc Helmold our Performance Management course visited the company Kunststofftechnik Hennigsdorf (KTH). The company creates revenues of more than 5 to 6 Mill. EUR p.a. and has about 25 employees in the Northern part of Berlin.
KTH belongs to the Gummi-Welz GmbH & Co. KG with more than 300 employees in Germany, Poland and Turkey. It is a small and medium-sized company and a very good example of high performance in the "Mittelstand". Besides understanding the key performance indicators, the students could learn that also for KTH strategies like outsourcing and global sourcing are essential for competitveness.
Congratulations to our IUBH graduates in Berlin! 👩🎓👨🎓👏👏👏
