Work and Study

The unique mix of different learning styles, called Blended Learning, is a modern form of teaching that combines e-learning, self-study and intensive in-class teaching seminars, aimed at professionals with limited time. The block seminars are learning opportunities that use case studies, group interaction and discussions.

You will have access to our student platform at any place and time. Even when you are away you can access the teaching material, get in touch with tutors as well as your fellow students about group work and study questions.

In addition to the teaching material every participant receives access to electronic journal services with a broad range of relevant literature.
