Quality education

No matter what your passion or dream career is, we have the degree to make it a reality. Take your pick from degrees in business & management, marketing, IT, applied psychology or healthcare management. 

Many of our graduate degrees (MA/MBA) are available in different ECTS credits, so you can pursue a shorter or longer course of studies, based on your experience and skills. 

International accreditation & recognition

Our university is state-recognised by the federal government of Thuringen, Germany, and our degrees are recognised around the world. 

We’re a member of the Association of African Universities (AAU) and the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and were recognised by well-known organisations such as WES (US & Canada).

That matches your needs

Student taking online classes


All of our degrees are offered in English and 100% online, so you get to study at your own pace, from anywhere in the world. That includes the exams, which you can take online 24/7/365. 

Many of our programmes are also offered on campus in Germany, at our Berlin and Bad Honnef campuses.  

If you choose to join us on campus, you’ll not only enjoy a great student experience in a fantastic country to start your career in, but also get to study in our upgraded, blended campus study format


Thanks to having over a decade of online teaching experience, we’ve worked with a wide range of learners who are not typical students:  

  • Business owners  
  • Single parents 
  • Pensioners  
  • And students who were the first ones in their families to attend a university. 

So no matter your situation and the level of support you need, we’re here for you and we’ll help you overcome any obstacles. From study motivation to exam preparation, and anything in between – we'll be with you every step of the way
