Study at Witten/Herdecke University: Joachim Zweynert, programme coordinator for Global Sustainability
A sustainable transformation can only succeed globally. In our Bachelor's degree programme Global Sustainability, people from all over the world learn together how to develop adequate solutions.
Prof. Dr Joachim Zweynert, B.A. Global Sustainability Programme Coordinator
Study at Witten/Herdecke University: Thomas Clauß, programme coordinator for Social Data Science
Data is the foundation of decisions. Our students learn to interpret data correctly and use it to solve problems. This makes them sought-after professionals in the job market.

Study at Witten/Herdecke University: Jens Harbecke, programme coordinator for Philosophy, Politics and Economics
PPE combines three extraordinarily interesting disciplines, teaches a set of crucially important analytical skills, and opens up attractive job opportunities in several fields. The perfect combination, in my view.

As professor, I enjoy working closely with UW/H students and enabling them to become tomorrow’s responsible leaders who stand out for their strategic and organisational perspective and personal integrity.

The educational approach in economics studies at Witten/Herdecke University is based on:

  • Expertise and problem-solving skills
  • Personal growth
  • General education

In order to live up to these principles, students need sufficient space to re-examine themselves repeatedly in exchange with others, and to assimilate the feedback and support they receive. Our comprehensive mentoring programme promotes this process.
