Suited to each other?


Our interdisciplinary degree programmes 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.

The key question for you as an applicant and for us at the university is whether we are a good match. Our individual selection procedures help to answer this question. Excellent school-leaving grades are not the main criterion; we attach more importance to motivation, character, dedication and job experience.


Our homepage, social media activities, flyers and brochures, and event formats such as CAMPUSday, 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 are an asset to UW/H. There are no pat solutions for guaranteed admission. We recommend: be spontaneous, be authentic.


Having gained the impression that we are right for each other, we shall invite you to study at Witten/Herdecke University. The high degree of satisfaction among our students and the minimum rate of dropouts suggest that we seem to get it right.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

Our Bachelor progammes “Business Economics (B.A.)” and “Philosophy, Politics and Economics (B.A.)” and also the Master programmes “Management (M.A.)” and "Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (M.A.)"take beginners every semester, i.e. in summer and winter. The Master programme in “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.
