[09.09.2006] Web site
news: Since Google right now took our new pages into its database,
the Web site search on the homepage is integrated again. The
answer pages, however, still are in the look of the old Web site.
For a few days now, Google
Public Service Search is not available for log-in and
changes, for what reason ever. We will update the search pages on
the Google server as soon as possible. In the meantime, feel free
to use the Web site search and enjoy the different designs.
[09.09.2006] For all IIS-RU
students and graduates who remember Nasim Hosein working hard on
his Ph.D. dissertation in the Ph.D. lounge: He is now working at Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota, USA, as an Assistant Professor of
Marketing (the link brings you to the faculty directory). Many
of our students are still grateful for the support he gave them
privately in their projects. The Ph.D. he received from IIS-RU, by
the way, is internationally valued high enough to make our Ph.D.
graduate a professor at a US State university.
graduates find it difficult to keep in touch after leaving IIS-RU -
no surprise with students from almost 40 countries on five
continents. To help our graduates keeping the network alive,
independent of where their friends ever might be right now, IIS-RU
installed its own section in Alumni.Net, the
world's largest directory of alumni. All students, professors, and
staff are cordially invited to register in the IIS-RU Classmates
Registry (registration is free, of course).
[04.09.2006] Welcome to
our new Web site! After using an application service
provider to track each visitor of our Web site (where does he come
from, what pages does he look how long and in which order, and so
on) we had enough reason to re-work our Web site. Some pages
nobody visits are removed, the information structure is easier
now, and the appearance is more equal to our printed brochures,
flyers, and posters - all that developed in our courses. Whenever
you find a mistake or something does not work as it should do,
please send us an e-mail.
Many thanks in advance!
[04.09.2006] Student Handbook and brochures are freshly updated. We will not print the Student
Handbook since content needs to be updated each semester.
Therefore, new students receive the Student Handbook as an Adobe
e-Book on CD, together with a short introduction how to use it. It
will include as a new section all courses offered in the coming
semester. To make it easier checking for a new version easier for
you, the Student Handbook will be numbered on the title page with
the semester it is made for. The current semester is still 1/2006
(first semester academic year 2006). The next version will be
online 2/2006 (end of October). Any suggestions to make it better
are always welcome (e-mail)!

[06.07.2006] The first
IIS-RU Ph.D. graduate is to get a tenure-track position at a U.S.
university. Dr. Nasim Hosein, who received his doctorate at
IIS-RU last year, just accepted an Assistant Professorship position at Northern State University in the USA. We
congratulate and wish him all the very best for his further
private and professional life!
[16.06.2006] The IIS-RU Image Brochure is now online in its final version. It

alongside our Student Handbook. Currently, it contains 203 pages,
587 pictures, with all pages being connected to each other with
20,655 hyperlinks. With such a complexity, there are always mistakes. Please help us to find them! When ever you find a
dead link, a picture that does not appear, or even a writing
mistake, please send a a short note by e-mail to our Webmaster. Many thanks for your support!

[24.04.2006] In mourning, we want to inform you that our long-term
Visiting Professor Dr. Moshe Levin, Professor Emeritus at
University of Illinois at Springfield (USA), passed away last
night. For eight years, Prof. Dr. Moshe visited our institute to
conduct highly appreciated courses on Ph.D., Master, and Bachelor
level. He just finished the doctoral students' presentations of
their Independent Studies and attended a party his seminar
participants gave for him in order to thank him for his
extraordinary personal effort. When he began to feel
uncomfortable, his Ph.D. students brought him to the next
hospital, where he passed away. Faculty, students, and staff
at IIS-RU are mourning. We miss him already.
[02.04.06] From 2006, at IIS-RU high-performers make their Bachelor degree in only 3 years! During the Summer term
(April and May), when most students relax at the beach, a variety
of courses is offered. A student can take up to 4 additional
courses per year in this Summer term. Together with applying early
after leaving school (before April), a student can cut a whole
year of study time that way ... more.
[28.02.06] Still uncertain, which Master program
you should study? Have a look in our course descriptions that are
now available for all International Master Degree Programs. If you prefer to
read them off-line, you can download them as PDF files as well!

[25.01.06] In March 2006, IIS-RU will offer a summer university for Matthayom 4, 5, and 6 students on English for University. Instead of going to a normal language
school, we think it is more effective to prepare for studying in
an international program or a university abroad with those who
know best what it needs. The 3-credit courses EN101 and EN102 are
offered from 06 to 30 March 2006.
