PERSONAL DETAILS

My name is Thomas Suermann de Nocker and I am professor for general business studies, especially strategic management and sustainability at the FOM University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management. The FOM University of Applied Sciences is Germany’s biggest private university of applied sciences with about 35,000 students and has its headquarter in Essen.

I did my doctorate in Pastoral Theologie at the Catholic-Theological Department of the University of Münster in 2011. My thesis on the cooperation of strategic consultancies and Catholic Dioceses was graded “summa cum laude” and awarded with the Paul-Nordhues-Caritaspreis.

I have worked as consultant on organisational matters since 2010 – as employee of large consulting companies as well as freelancer. My consultancy emphasis is on the non-profit sector, especially church and charitable institutions.

I live in Essen with my wife and my children. You can best contact me via .
