"Students International Mentoring Program & Social Organizational Network" of the Faculty of Economics and Management.


Exclusively for International Study Program students - Germans and Internationals - we offer a mentoring program (SIMPSON) with very active and ambitious students who are further along with their studies. These mentors are both German and international students with study and living experience in Magdeburg. Our mission is to help all newcomers feel welcome and assimilate you to your new environment at Otto-von-Guericke University. See SIMPSON flyer

If you are interested in taking part in our buddy program, please contact the SIMPSON team via Instagram (ispofficeovgu) or email. We have a student buddy for everyone to ensure that you feel welcome from your very first day at OVGU. Also check out our "quick guide" section to read through FAQs and find handouts with information about finding apartments in Magdeburg, enrollment tips, SIMPSON welcome events, and additional advice.

Higher semester students:

As an upper-level student in our faculty (i.e. further along with your studies), you will be in contact with new students from around the world and support them with their “first steps”, obtain international experiences, make new friends, and extend your personal global network. Taking part in the SIMPSON mentoring program as a buddy is a rewarding opportunity. At the end of the semester, active participants will receive an official certificate "Intercultural Competencies and Activities" which is great for CVs, etc.

Become part of the buddy program today by filling out the form and sending it to us via email at isp@ovgu.de Thank you!
