Berlin International University of Applied Sciences was founded as part of a growing international network of university campuses, offering students a cutting-edge, international study experience and an ideal preparation for careers in the increasingly globalised, modern business environment. Berlin International is built on the experience of offering courses from six different study areas in Berlin as part of the BAU Global Network. Since 2012, we have been offering courses in Berlin. We built our modern campus and started to welcome students to our own study programmes in 2014/15.
Berlin International University of Applied Sciences is a non-profit institution designed to enrich the higher education landscape in Germany. Currently, Berlin International consists of two faculties, the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculty of Design. An expansion is planned for the mid-term future with regard to programmes in Preschool Education and Health Care (especially Senior Health Care).
Internationality and interculturality are central features of the university. In Berlin - one of the most important metropolises in Europe - students and scholars from all over the world learn to deal with the challenges of a progressively globalising world. The language of instruction in all study programmes is English. Additionally, in order to further advance students' international career opportunities, language courses will be offered as elective courses. A central component of all study programmes will also be general skills training in areas such as presentation skills, self-organisation, intercultural communication, and business plan and concept development.
Our goal is to offer a challenging, innovative and practice-oriented education that advances the cultural and linguistic potential of our students. A good teacher-to-student and staff-to-student ratio will allow for individual support and close counselling of all students. With an English language-based, interdisciplinary-oriented education, our students will gain excellent foundations for an international career.
In addition to this strong focus on the education of our students, Berlin International also distinguishes itself from the majority of universities of applied sciences by placing an equally strong focus on excellence in research. For this reason, our university features a stand-alone research institute located between and supporting our two faculties. At this institute, scholars from Berlin International and partner institutions cooperate on state-of-the-art research initiatives in the fields of design, economics, and social sciences.
Berlin International University of Applied Sciences will swiftly become a unique and highly visible part of the higher education landscape in Berlin. We invite all interested students, researchers and institutional partners to contact us about opportunities for study, cooperation and exchange.
