Why Dortmund?

Pure industrial culture awaits you in Dortmund. The former centre of the coal and steel industry is now one of the most commercial and cultural metropolises in North Rhine-Westphalia. Your studies at a university in Dortmund will pay off in that the city, as a rapidly growing technology hub, is pushing innovative concepts and will continue to look for young talent like you in the future. So studying in Dortmund means a win-win strategy for you.

Dortmund is the major service centre and 'the city of medium-sized businesses' in the Rhine-Ruhr region - but it is also a science location with numerous universities and research institutions. Those who study dual studies with us benefit from both: from a strong business network to potential practical companies and from a lively student flair during their studies and in their free time."
