Verzahnung Theorie und Praxis

INTERLOCKING THEORY AND PRACTICE

Study, work and leisure - with us you can combine everything. Because you regularly alternate between theory and practice:

  • You learn the theory at one of our study locations or virtually and independent of location.
  • You complete the practical part on site at a local company.
  • This allows you to apply what you have learned directly and to understand course content more quickly and easily. 
  • You can discuss questions from your everyday working life with your lecturers.

PERSONAL SUPPORT

Just a student number? Not with us!

  • The study advisory is there for you before you start into your studies.
  • The study guides will provide you with personal support throughout your studies and give you valuable tips.
  • Our lecturers are also there for you outside of the lectures.

10,000+ PRACTICE PARTNERS

You're not on your own when it comes to finding a practice partner. We will help you find the right company for your practice stages.

  • For this purpose, we draw on our network of over 15,000 practice partners.
  • We also support you in your application to other companies.

THIS IS HOW VARIED YOUR STUDIES WILL BE WITH US

  • LECTURES

    The content of our lectures is strongly oriented towards practice. Many topics are explained using current examples and discussed together. This makes our lectures highly interactive.

  • PRACTICE

    Consolidating and deepening acquired skills - that's what the practical exercises are all about. For example, you will work on case studies together with other students and - with the support of your professor – learn how to solve tasks by yourselves.

  • SEMINARS

    In our seminars, you will learn how to apply scientific methods: On the basis of specialist literature, you will deal with a concrete topic in a well-founded manner and work on it in a seminar paper.

  • PRACTICAL SEMINARS

    In our practical seminars, the focus is on theory-practice transfer. You will deal with concrete practical questions and apply the scientific know-how you have acquired.

  • PRACTICAL PROJECTS

    In our practical projects, you will work on a practical issue in your company under the guidance of your professor. The issue will be developed together with your practice partner.

  • INTEGRATED LECTURES

    With digital media such as videos, presentations or podcasts, you independently acquire content, which you then deepen in a practical manner in the subsequent attendance phases. You benefit from all the advantages of a classic lecture but also from more flexibility, because you can learn when, how and where you want!
