The city of over a million inhabitants has international significance as a business and cultural metropolis and is one of the most important locations for the chemical and automotive industries. Cologne is not only home to the largest media companies but is also one of the most important locations for congresses and trade fairs. The optimal combination of academic studies and practical work experience helps our part- time students to pursue their careers in a targeted and practical way."
