AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE: MORE COMPETENCE AND KNOW-HOW FOR YOUR COMPANY

Secure your competitive edge as an attractive employer by supporting your talents in financing their studies.

Our modern working world ticks digitally and has fundamentally changed the requirements for professional development. Not long ago, many of today's sought-after job profiles were non-existent, and jobs that will go beyond the status quo will continue to emerge in the years to come. The success of your corporate goals depends to a large extent on the skills and commitment of your employees, which they bring to realisation. By consistently promoting advanced education programmes, you are making an investment that will pay off many times over.

  • TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A COST-EFFECTIVE TRAINING OPTION

    Financing studies of your employees outside working hours is the cheapest option for advanced education.

  • SAVE UNNECESSARY COSTS

    Employees often change their jobs due to a lack of further education: You can invest these frictional costs by providing targeted training for valuable qualified staff.

  • RETAINING EMPLOYEES

    You motivate and retain highly qualified talent to achieve your corporate goals.

IU – YOUR STRONG PARTNER

We facilitate the best possible study outcome for our students through tailor- made offers and technological support, based on the current state of research and teaching as well as our decades of experience.

FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCES

KATJA FAUTH

Director of Human Resources and Quality at Althoff Hotels 

"With the new online exams on offer, IU provides even more flexibility during studies – and this is particularly relevant for students who usually work or take care of their family alongside their studies. Being able to take exams at any time and from any place is something we at Althoff Hotels see as a big step forward for everyone involved. We are quite convinced by the idea that we would like to introduce the online exam in our own further education programmes in the future.”

Martin Schramm

B.A. Business Administration, Tactical Product Manager, how.fm

"In addition to the good reputation, the flexibility and the combination of online and live seminars impressed me."

After his vocational training as an IT System Assistant, Martin Schramm wanted to broaden his career horizons – and decided to study Business Administration at IU part-time alongside his job. Today, he is part of the co-founder team of the start-up how.fm, which offers training and self-help for workers and employees.
