Silhouette Universität Witten/Herdecke
Faculty of Management and Economics


    The three core values proclaimed in the mission statement of Witten/Herdecke University are freedom, truth and responsibility. Transferred to the Faculty of Management and Economics, this means that we offer excellent academic education with a focus on the conveyance of subject-specific expertise and the training of judgment and responsibility.

    Our graduates are the leaders of tomorrow, critical thinkers who assume entrepreneurial responsibility – be it in the private sector with a Bachelor or Master in “Management”, or at the interface between politics, business and society as graduates in “Philosophy, Politics and Economics”.

    The Faculty offers high-quality teaching and research with options of specialisation in:

    Entrepreneurship / Family Business
    Leadership and Organisation
    Institutions, Change and Development
    Health Economics
    Co-operation with family businesses
    Co-operation with family businesses

    The Faculty of Management and Economics co-operates with many universities, enterprises and other organisations – within the region and across the world. We are located in Witten, embedded in the Ruhr Valley and collaborate with about 70 family businesses (Witten Institute for Family Business - WIFU) and approximately 45 food industry companies (Center for Sustainable Leadership – ZNU).

    Renowned academic partners support our thematic foci, while our alumni are another very important element of our large network. They hold leadership positions in strong businesses worldwide.
