12 We offer a program that is…
Challenging We challenge students to complete their PhD in 3 years. We look for intrinsically motivated students who will excel in our academic culture based on research freedom. At PACE, mathematicians talk to mechanical engingeers, and physisists collaborate with software engineers. Students also profit from an extensive academic network far beyond Paderborn. Interdisciplinary We have excellent partnerships with companies such as Daimler and Wincor Nixdorf. Through projects with our industry partners, student research can provide solutions to real world business problems. Practical International Our students come from all over the world. During our program they can take advantage of soft skill training, intercultural activities, company visits and German language classes. Affordable Students receive financial aid in the form of a fellowship, and full reimbursement of travel costs. We even refund the cost of the admission interview. We understand doctoral students need to focus on research. That is why we do not require our students to teach. We also help structure their 3 years to ensure success. And we take care time-consuming administration. Supportive

13 Candidates we accept are…
Top of their class Flexible Self-motivated Independent Disciplined International

14 International Recruiting Strategy
Website Content and design geared to potential applicants Guides reader to the application procedure Brochure Leads reader back to the internet presence Low content density Personal doctoral experience is highlighted Advertising Spread message of PhD programs and scholarships on international sites Lead potential candidates back to website and application Social Networks Stay abreast of best practices in international higher education recruiting Extra networking and advertising of PhD programs

15 Online application procedure
Online procedure Online FAQ, question form and standard procedure allows for high volume Helps track advertising effectivity (where did applicant hear about PACE) Recruitment procedure as in job interview: Personal interviews Pre-selection of candidates by Board

16 Administrative Services
Housing search Visa and immigration help German language course Child care Social security and health insurance

17 Quality Management Structured student feedback
Conflict management and mediation Supervision assessment Intermediate exam

20 ITpreneurship: Kooperative Gründungsoffensive Hochschule –Wirtschaft im IT-Cluster Paderborn
ITpreneurship supports start-ups in the IT sector in cooperation with the regional IT industry ITpreneuship links companies, potential founders of a new business and Paderborn University and creates synergies to strengthen the regional IT-cluster

21 Aims: Conjoint finding of new business ideas and creation of a „pool of ideas“ Development of actions to bring together companies and potential founders of a new business Advancement of the ideas to the formation of a cooperative company

22 Basic Soft Skill Training: communication, project management, etc.
The PACE (+) Program Entrepeneurship Skills Training Scientific Career Skills Training Management Skills Training Basic Soft Skill Training: communication, project management, etc. Successful completion of a PACE (+) track leads to an extra certificate along with the PhD.

23 Facts & Figures more than 15 applications per place to study
more than 80 PhD students with degrees from over 20 countries 20% female PhD students > 450 publications > 90 alumni duration: < 40 months (average)

24 Further Activities Joint transferable skill program with other NRW-Graduate Schools (Münster, Essen) Representing Paderborn University in the Council of Doctoral Education of the European University Association (EUA)

25 Further Activities Participating in the DOC CAREERS Project I and II of the EUA DOC-CAREERS II will look uniquely at how universities work with their regional partners in doctoral education across Europe.  Input for the Tempus-Project ProTec-WBC

40 What our students say “The opportunity for cooperation with industry was the main reason for me to do my PhD in Paderborn. When you’re working for a company, solving a concrete business problem for them, you are not just trying out an idea. Your research has to be viable. It has to lead to the solution of an actual business issue. This is what really made my research interesting.” -- Jens Peter Kempkes
