Teaching Awards

Teaching Award 2020 of the KIT Faculty of Economic Sciences

Jelena Eberbach has been awarded the Teaching Award of the KIT Faculty of Economics for her performance in "Übungen zu Investments". The students evaluated her exercise as one of the five best exercise classes of the faculty.

Our other lectures and exercises were also rated outstandingly by the students. Due to the minimum evaluation requirement for the lectures and exercise classes to be considered for the teaching awards, our other lectures or exercises could not be nominated for the awards. Nevertheless, we are very pleased with the students' appreciation of our teaching, especially in times of special circumstances caused by the ongoing online teaching commitment due to the Corona pandemic.
