For us, internationalization is not just a buzzword – at our university, it is something that is really lived. Guest lecturers from abroad are regularly invited to teach at our university.

We maintain a close network with more than 60 partner universities all over the world and encourage our students to go abroad to study for a semester or do internships. Within Europe, we participate in the ERASMUS program.

Think big - 2 undergraduate degrees, 2 universities, 2 countries in less than 4 years. A truly international experience.

Studying Competence - The CORE PRINCIPLE

After your graduation, you will start your career with a great sense of self-confidence. Our students possess everything for a successful career: knowledge, competence, expertise and key skills. Our students are self-assured about their abilities.

Activating Teaching and Learning Methods:
To ensure that acquired knowledge will be retained, you are instructed with a practical work (case studies, team projects, role plays and presentations).

Competence-Based Methods of Examination:
From the abundance of methods of examination available (oral examination, presentation, projects), we choose the method that fits best to the relevant competencies. Scheduling with a great number of exams will not exist anymore, due to the new program.

Subject-Oriented 5-Week Blocks
Our academic year is divided into eight 5-week blocks. In each block, two parallel classes at the most may be taken. Instead of having to deal with numerous subjects at the same time, you can focus entirely on a maximum of two subjects within one 5-week block.

Close Professional and Individual Supervision:
We will guide you throughout your studies, professionally, individually and in terms of organizational matters. From the beginning of your studies, a qualified mentor will accompany you. Moreover, you will receive individual coaching and professional guidance from our career service.
