We offer innovative university degrees taught in English by industry leaders from around the world, aimed at giving our students meaningful and creatively satisfying top-level professional futures. We think the future is bright if you make it so.

Combinatorics and graph theory lay at the heart of discrete mathematics and computer science. In the course, we begin with a brief review of the fundamentals of combinatorics---counting, permutations, binomial coefficients, and the pigeonhole principle---and then devote most of the course to the fundamentals of graph theory. We cover the most common definitions and ideas of graph theory, proving important theorems and introducing important algorithms, but mostly aiming to simply establish the common language of discrete mathematics and computer science.

Hannes S. Chopra is the CEO of RaSa Future Fund, a private equity fund investing into early stage technological start-ups disrupting the financial/insurance world. He is also an Executive Coach and Associate at Bossert Associates, Munich. Hannes is passionate about personal and leadership transformation of executives and leaders. ‘The next 10 years belong to us, humans. We will finally start discovering our true self and unleashing our humanness. We will disrupt our old-style life and old self. Technology will be a fantastic enabler helping us along the way. Enabling leaders to realize themselves is the key to enabling change in our transformative world.

Hannes has a strong business background with over 20 years in leadership positions. He looks back at a successful career at Allianz Group where he reached the highest leadership grading and served as CEO in Russia and as regional head of Eurasia (former Soviet Union). As non-executive director he served in boards in Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Egypt and South Africa. Furthermore, he built a highly successful insurance company (Sberbank Insurance) from scratch for Sberbank, one of the largest European and the largest Russian bank. For many years he has been involved in mentoring, peer-to-peer coaching and has recently completed his Executive Coach certification (PCC level).

Hannes has a master’s degree in economics from the University of Freiburg (Germany) and is attending the Presidents Programme at Harvard Business School and London Business School. He is an active member of YPO, having served as Chairman of YPO Russia from 2014 till 2016.

Hannes is fluent in German, English, Panjabi, Hindi and Russian. He advises a number of startups.

The overall objective is to enable the student to look differently at the world and get an idea of his/her future place in this world. There will be 3 different phases where different learning goals are in the forefront. 

Phase no. 1 is about learning and understanding the current system and get an insight on the pain points in the existing models which could translate into business opportunities. 

In phase no. 2 we explore and learn about current business cases disrupting/redefining the financial world. 

And finally we go one step higher and come from a future world scenario to the business idea.
