Studying in Germany

We put emphasis on internationality. That's why we were ranked as "one of the best 25 international universities worldwide" (U-Multirank 2016). Our many international students come from all over the world to pursue a highly valued (state and FIBAA recognised) German degree that is entirely taught in English. We are also ranked as one of the top ten performers in the Business Studies category in universities in Germany in 2018 (U-Multirank 2018).
Germany, known as the country of innovators, the largest economic power and the centre of high tech and automotive technologies in Europe, the perfect place to get your degree. Additionally, Germany is a particularly safe and liveable country with relatively low tuition fees and affordable living costs. Furthermore, Berlin is known as Europe's start-up capital, magnet for creatives, and "the place to be" for young people and entrepreneurs. That's why we encourage international students to come here and study with us. You can apply with your national school degree now.
