Study Start for Global Management and Manufacturing

Welcome to study start for Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM)!

We are a team consisting of four mentors who are very excited to meet you all! We will do our best to provide you with the best possible start on your studies!

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to a world of possibilities. Therefore, we have made a program focusing on team activities, relevant information and our experiences as GMM students.

Throughout the first semester, we will have team lectures where the primary focus is on study techniques and life as a student based on, among other things, our experiences as GMM students. Besides this, we will gladly answer your questions or direct you to someone who can.

Life as an engineering student is not necessarily easy, and an important part of the everyday life is team work across projects. The study start is an important foundation, during which you will meet your fellow students and establish relations, creating the basis of the academic and social activities of your education.

We encourage you all to participate in the study start we have prepared for you!

The Mentors of GMM: Mathias, Oskar, Joshua and Jens.
