University: A woman from Coburg finds her dream job – Coburg

She was invited to Columbia University in New York City as a visiting scholar for her research. Hellen Gross gained her practical experience over a number of years in management consulting. Here she advised various organizations on questions of controlling, process optimization and branding.

In 2016, she was offered a professorship for nonprofit management at the Saarland University of Applied Sciences on the way back to a university. Since then she has been teaching modules such as marketing, human resources and organization or financial management. One focus of her teaching is the transferability of economic concepts to cultural organizations or social service providers.

In his research, Gross deals, among other things, with the relationship between the satisfaction of hospital staff and the recommendation, pay-what-you-want as a price mechanism or diversity in the cultural sector.

At the Coburg University of Applied Sciences, the 36-year-old professor would like to initially provide good online teaching and, as soon as possible, work on a lot of practical work with the students. “It is said that we not only impart knowledge, but also competence!” A key topic of social management is how to set up social organizations so that they can survive and finance themselves. In the field of cultural management, she sees great potential in Coburg: “There are many great cultural offers and institutions in Coburg that I would like to make contact with.” Hellen Gross is therefore already looking forward to “working and making a difference in Coburg. ”
