The University of Freiburg's Center for Key Qualifications (ZfS) offers an additional program of no less than 42 courses during the summer break, including classes in the areas of management, communication, media, and data processing. The focus is on promoting important supradisciplinary skills and reinforcing professional orientation. Online registration for Bachelor's and Law students opens on 10.07.2017. The Freie Platzvergabe, which allocates places in the courses, is available to all students enrolled at the University of Freiburg from 25.07.2017.

In the field of management students may familiarize themselves with the areas of culture or sustainability management, or general organizational topics like Grundlagen und Praxis des Prozessmanagement/ Basics and practical process management or Ethik als Managementaufgabe/ The ethics of management.

Szenisches Erzählen/ Descriptive writing and Kreatives Schreiben/ Creative writing provide opportunities to work on playful or dramatic aspects of communication and to develop new ways of personal communication and neutral description.
