The development of effective occupational courses of study require a number of complex design and implementation stages which differ significantly from the design of undergraduate courses or go beyond these:

  • time-and location-independent design of the learning process
  • use of collaborative e-learning and mobile technologies
  • (media)-didactic design according to the requirements of adult learners
  • quality assured recognition of professional competences

Target groups

The concepts of the study programs being developed are directed towards non-traditional target groups:

  • management trainees and junior managers who wish to study part-time
  • skilled personnel with family responsibilities
  • professionals returning to their jobs
  • graduates seeking a master's degree after first work experience
  • international students interested in studying should be addressed via the web-based offers
