Check our short video and get impressions about the collaboration with Magnum Photos and the days at UE Campus back in September 2022.

As a ‘University of Applied Sciences’ it is natural for UE to work with inspiring personalities in addition to cooperating with innovative companies, associations and agencies. Many of them have pursued their goals through commitment, hard work and creativity and have made careers in diverse fields. Some of them have impressed us so much that we have included them in our ‘Wall of Fame’.
