Governing bodies and committees

Governing bodies and committees

The university’s governing bodies comprise the rectorate and the Senate. Further committees include the Council for practical studies and the students’ union.

In the Senate, representatives of full-time lecturers, the studies section and students decide on important issues relating to teaching and studies, eg the university’s constitution, while members of the Council for practical studies advise the university in all matters related to the practical side of the study programme.

In order to fulfil their personal and social needs, as well as to promote cultural and sporting interests, students can form a students’ union during their theoretical studies.

Council for practical studies

Its voting members include

  • the Deutsche Bundesbank Executive Board member responsible for the university (Chair),

  • the Head of the Department for Economic Education, University and Technical Central Bank Cooperation,

  • the Head of the Deutsche Bundesbank’s Human Resources Department,

  • the Deutsche Bundesbank’s main tutor

  • up to two further representatives from Deutsche Bundesbank departments (three-year appointment),

  • up to two presidents of Deutsche Bundesbank regional offices (three-year appointment),

  • the head of a Deutsche Bundesbank branch (three-year appointment),

  • up to two further representatives of other institutions that send students to the university (three-year appointment).

The rector or deputy rector have an advisory function and may put forward a motion.

The Council for practical studies advises both the university and the Deutsche Bundesbank in all matters related to the practical side of the study programme and the coordination between the university and the Bundesbank and other institutions as employers.

The university’s constitution and sponsorship resolution form the legal framework of the Council for practical studies.
