From "Pioneer" of Studies Abroad to Professor


There is hardly anyone who knows the Faculty of Business Studies as well as Professor Dr. Hans Mackenstein does, because he did not just spend his student days here. By now, he can look back on 20 years of teaching at the faculty.

As one of the very first students, Professor Dr. Hans Mackenstein completed his studies with a double degree.

"The international aspect of the course of study as well as the integrated semester abroad were decisive factors in my decision to come to FH Aachen."

He was one of the first students to register in the German-British degree programme in Economics, and as a trailblazer, he studied at today’s Coventry University for some time, eventually earning a double degree: the Diplom-Betriebswirt at FH Aachen as well as the Bachelor of Arts Applied Economics at Coventry University.
