Our Vision

At the University of Applied Sciences Europe we are committed to providing our graduates with lasting and successful studies and training for job in the digital age. As a state-accredited university of applied sciences under private ownership, we promote especially independent entrepreneurial-creative thinking and acting. We provide the relevant specialist, decision-making and social skills through modern pedagogical concepts in flexible study programs. As a cosmopolitan, European university, we cultivate both local and global perspectives and actively promote the international mobility of our students.

We pursue respectful interpersonal relationships that motivate our students and employees to contribute to the shaping and further development of the university. At each campus we cultivate a personal atmosphere by individually addressing and actively accompanying the unique strengths, life situations and development paths of our students.

The consistent combination of theoretical requirements and practical implementation promotes professional curiosity and provides orientation in the development of a unique profile. For this purpose, we consider dialogue-focused, interactive pedagogical concepts in small groups as the optimal manner to acquire result-oriented competencies. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary cooperation of our various departments offers students significant added value.

These goals are pursued and met by a professorship which itself is scientifically and practically active and is fully acquainted with the current challenges in its field of expertise. We execute our educational mission with equal responsibility towards both the professional and social requirements demanded of us. Ultimately, our university sees itself as an inviting platform for imparting knowledge and research in the process guiding our students to become independent, reflective and responsible personalities.
