Our interdisciplinary degree programs offer a suitable approach to future decision-makers who plan to assume positions of responsibility in business, politics and other sectors of society. Here you learn to explore the disciplines of business economics and general management in context, and are trained to play an active role in addressing the new economic and social challenges.
As one of Germany’s most renowned Business Schools we do not only produce graduates with excellent knowhow; we educate personalities who have learned to look beyond the boundaries of their discipline.
Come and see for yourself!
Our homepage, social media activities, flyers and brochures, and event formats such as Open Day, Master Day and Taster Day offer ample opportunity to get a personal impression and learn more about us.
Having first convinced yourself, you will then have to convince us that you will be an asset to UW/H.
There are no pat solutions for guaranteed admission. We recommend: be spontaneous, be authentic.
Your written application documents should illustrate who you are, what motivates you to apply in Witten, and why you believe Witten/Herdecke suits you. If your application has piqued our curiosity the next step will be an invitation for personal interviews with teams of UW/H faculty and alumni, members of the business community and/or media. There are no standardized tests or assessment procedures; we concentrate on you: personality, entrepreneurial or social commitment, academic potential, ambitions and talents.
There is no list of criteria to be met, nor do we have a fixed intake per semester. Evaluation is as individual as the candidates themselves. The system has proved to be very satisfactory.
Having gained the impression that we are right for each other, we shall invite you to study at Witten/Herdecke University.
The selection of students is based on majority decisions. The high degree of satisfaction among our students and the minimum rate of dropouts suggest that we seem to do it right.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Our Bachelor programs “Business Economics (B.A.)” and “Philosophy, Politics and Economics (B.A.)” and also the Master program “Management (M.A.)” take beginners every semester, i.e. in summer and winter. Our Master program “Family Business Management (M.Sc.)” starts in winter only. And if you are still not quite sure whether Witten/Herdecke University is the right choice, come and see for yourself, get a personal impression.
