Dr. Wenting Sheng

I studied at Shanghai International Studies University for three years and then went to Germany with my BA in German and British Studies. I belonged to the first group of students from the exchange program between the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) and Tsinghua University in Beijing. After my language course at Communikation Akoun & Scholten, in which I prepared for the DSH exam (thanks to my lecturers Heike, Lothar and Daniel!), I started a master study at the UDE. My subjects were German Studies, Economics and American Studies. After successfully completing my studies, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Ammon, who passed away in 2019, offered me a Ph.D. project. I worked on the topic “Language Promotion Policy of Germany, Great Britain and China in Comparison” and completed the project in 2015 with the publication of my thesis and my doctoral examinations. During the time of my doctorate I also worked as a scientific assistant to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Ammon at the UDE.
After completing my university education, I have been working for four years (as of 2019) first as an Intercultural Consultant in the field of Business Communication, then as Global Assignment Manager (APAC) at the ICUnet.Group in Hamburg. I have found my place and I am working on deepening German-Chinese economic relations and consolidating global cooperation.
