The “CORE-Principle” – Competence Oriented Research and Education – places the acquisition of occupational competence at the center of your studies. This approach goes far beyond the delivery of theoretical knowledge. After your graduation, you will start your career with a great sense of self-confidence. Our students possess everything needed for a successful career: knowledge, competence, expertise and key skills.

  • The competence model: The term occupational competence denotes all the skills that enable you to act independently and successfully in the labor market! Occupational competence can be attained at many levels by acquiring professional competence, methodological competence, self-competence and social competence
  • Subject-Oriented 5-Week Blocks: 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 period.
  • Activating Teaching and Learning Methods: To ensure that students remember what they are learning, we take a practical approach to teaching, using case studies, seminars, team projects, role plays and presentations.
  • Competence-Based Examination Methods: From the profusion of examination methods available we choose the method that best fits the skills taught in a particular module. Scheduling a great number of exams within a short period of time is now a thing of the past thanks to the new program.
  • Personal responsibility: Only if you take responsibility for your own actions and how you study, will you be able to excel and take on responsibility in business life – for yourself and for others.
  • Best Employability: Our graduates are capable of proving themselves in a real business environment after their studies.
  • Learning partnership: In their roles as mentors and coaches, the teaching staff assist the students in every way possible, be it subject-specific content, study organization or in personal matters.
