Departmental Student Representative Committees (Fachschaftsrat, also called FSR or FaRa for short) represent students’ interests in the individual degree programs or departments. They are elected to represent all the students of a certain degree program/department and are in charge of administration. They provide support for projects by students and teaching staff members, represent student interests in various committees, organize celebrations and cultural highlights. Students can turn to the Departmental Student Representative Committees if they have problems or questions about the organization of their studies.

The Fachschaftsrat Wirtschaftswissenschaften is an institution of the student body of the University of Potsdam and also an institution of student self-administration. It represents the interests of nearly 2,000 students of Business Administration, Economics, Politics and Economics and Business Information Systems. It currently consists of nine elected and several co-opted members.
The departmental student representative committee is the external representative of the department’s student body and is in contact with members of the university, in particular with other institutions of the student body and the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences.
The departmental student representative committee promotes the “cohesion” of all students in the department. We represent your interests in committees such as the Faculty Council, the Study Commission and search committees and advise you on questions and problems concerning your studies. In addition, we organize many events that make everyday university life more exciting, cultural, athletic, and fun.
Any good student representative committee depends on having dedicated students. There are not always enough students who voluntarily participate in the student representative committee alongside their studies. That is why we are always looking for enthusiastic students to join us.
Curious to know more? Do you have questions, ideas or feel like working with us? If you have a passion for social issues, are a team player and reliable, then contact us and join us! We will welcome you in our midst at any time! Ranging from work on the homepage, to organizing our parties, to answering e-mails, you will find that we offer a broad field of activities. In return, you will meet new people, make new friends and have an opportunity to experience some variety in everyday university life.
