Why Essen?

Essen will inspire you - at the latest at second glance. Since the end of the heavy industrial era, the "Green Capital of Europe" has developed into one of the most popular cultural centres in Germany. Over half a million people live here. The typical charm of the Ruhr region can be felt on almost every corner.

Given its regional importance and location, the city of Essen is often referred to as the capital of the Ruhr region. The important industrial location with the headquarters of well-known large companies and diverse medium-sized businesses opens up an exciting mix of industries for our students. In addition, with its many green spaces, Essen offers respite from the pulsating everyday life of the big city. It is precisely this mixture that makes a liveable business and science location.
