IU University of Applied Sciences

What we do differently

IU University of Applied Sciences provides quality programmes for Bachelor, Master, and MBA degrees with a whole new approach. We have established campuses for students who want to complete their studies on site but also offer our full programmes online for distance learning. The most recent development in our story: Eligible students can combine both online and on-campus studies and switch between the two. In this way, we enable students to develop on a personal and professional level and help advance their careers through future-oriented, flexible studies. Over the past year, we grew from 35.000 to more than 85.000 students at IU University of Applied Sciences!

Our mission

What drives us, is what drives you: We design our programmes and courses to be as flexible and innovative as possible—without sacrificing quality. We deliver specialist expertise and innovative learning materials as well as focusing on excellent student services and professional advice. Our programmes are characterised by the effective transfer of subject-specific knowledge and soft skills in order to prepare graduates for the international business world.

IU: Geared to the demands of the global market

Studying at IU makes careers in a global environment possible and we welcome students from all over the world. We prepare you for your international career with internationally relevant educational content and pay close attention to providing you with an international perspective for both general management modules and subject-specific content. We impart our international mind-set in all we do to prepare the next generation of professionals for global business. 

94 percent of our graduates find a job within the first three months of graduating and, after two years, an average of 80 percent have management responsibilities. These excellent results are based on the fact that, in addition to teaching professional expertise, we focus on training social and intercultural competence. IU is proud of its graduates and the impressive careers they have built.

Two Degrees, Double the Advantage

IU University of Applied Sciences (IU) has partnered with London South Bank University to give you the chance to have your degree validated by two institutions. When you choose this option, you’ll graduate from IU with both a German degree and a British degree, giving you a major career boost! This opportunity comes with no extra study courses or traveling.
