Kick-off Days for students beginning in the Autumn Semester At the Kick-off Days we greet our new and re-matriculated students on the Bachelor’s level (Second Bachelor’s degree), the Master’s level and the PhD level. The HSG Kick-off Days represent the demanding interdisciplinary curriculum of the HSG and thus also the unique corporate identity of our University. The Kick-off Days consist of two programmes: the Academic Programme (mandatory for all the new and re-immatriculated students who were exmatriculated for more than two semesters) and the Introductory Programme (mandatory for all the new students without HSG degree).
