We are the student management consultancy from Aachen
The creative minds of aixsolution are in this department. Our main responsibility is to create a positive image and an appropriate media representation of the association. We ensure this on our social media channels facebook and Instagram as well as recently again via LinkedIn. It is important that we always stay up to date, which can sometimes be quite difficult with so many active members who are everywhere. Whether competitions, company fairs, work meetings or social events, something happens at aixsolution every day – and the people from PR are always there.
One of the biggest tasks for the department is to design a new attractive recruiting campaign at the beginning of each semester to attract new applicants to our association.
The long-term goal of the department is to secure the future of the association. This includes the documentation of internal association processes, knowledge management, member surveys, as well as our processes for continuous improvement at all levels. When dealing with external customer projects, the Quality Management department comes into play in the support of the project teams as well as in the customer survey at the end of the project. Another major challenge is the preparation of the annual audit, which takes place in September each year, by our umbrella organization BDSU, the Association of German Student Consultancies. During the audit we are put through our paces by our umbrella organization and certified as a student consultancy. At the same time, the exchange with other student self-initiatives from all over Germany is encouraged and we gain profound insights.
QM has once again done a great job this year and was able to provide aixsolution with an excellent audit.
The main tasks of the Digital Affairs Department are not only to ensure the functionality and security of the association’s IT infrastructure, but digital content is also playing an increasingly important role in external project business. Impulses for our customer projects in the areas of digitization and Industry 4.0 are mainly provided by this team.
A further objective in the newly started financial year is the conception of IT workshops, which are created in-house in order to impart advanced IT knowledge such as Visual Basic for Application. In the last semester, an Excel training with the members of aixsolution was successfully conducted.
The main task of CC is to represent aixsolution to company representatives and to acquire external projects.
The dedicated team is responsible for communicating the competence and expertise of aixsolution at trade fairs and events. After the first contact with customers has been established, this relationship is constantly being promoted. In addition to project acquisition, the CC has established partnerships with renowned management consultancies, with whom we regularly exchange information with our members in the context of workshops.
What would we do without our HR department? Probably the members would die out and the general mood in the club would be anything but lively.
But thanks to the great team of HR, fortunately this is not the case, and we are grateful for dedicated department members who are primarily responsible for the interpersonal aspects within the association. Right now HR is in the peak phase, because it is recruiting time again. Now, huge amounts of applications are carefully screened, the applicant days are organized and carried out and the onboarding of the trainees is planned. In addition to these tasks, two other keywords are particularly important to HR: cohesion and development. In order to ensure this, special events are regularly organized, such as the annual club weekend, the summer and Christmas party or various other joint activities.
Finance & Law
The members of aixsolution, who always know a little bit more precisely than everyone else – yes, that is the F&R department. The dedicated team is responsible for all legal and financial issues. This means, for example, that DSGVO-compliant structures are set up for internal association data. And this is exactly what we members have been feeling in the last few weeks. Apart from many additional forms, there was always a little comment on this conformity at every project presentation – but somebody has to keep track of it.
In the current business year F&L plans to restructure the financial administration and to introduce a new administration tool.
Due to the small size of the department, there are no defined areas of responsibility and most tasks are directly assigned.
