Innovating and improving

Our professors, researchers, lecturers and students all work with partners in professional fields on high-quality, applied research. They produce innovative solutions to issues emerging from the international business community and society as a whole, thereby helping to create a more sustainable world. Their research results are also used for teaching. This ensures that students acquire the skills demanded by their professional fields. It also means that the research directly contributes to our mission as a university of applied sciences: to educate professionals who will contribute to a better and more sustainable world.
