  • Special features regarding teaching
    A classical training in Business Administration may no longer be sufficient to qualify students in many cases. Now – and even more so in the future – there is great demand for the ability to look at the wider picture in Business Administration, to develop sustainable solutions and to possess inter-disciplinary expertise for handling economic issues. We provide our students with a blend of different Business Administration subjects, together with economic and ecological knowledge, to help them on the way towards a promising future.

The university library has a wide range of relevant specialist literature and up-to-date online databases.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    In our guidelines for applied research on the environment campus, we promote the thematic focus on questions concerning the material cycle and sustainable development. In addition, we attach great importance to the linking of research and teaching with the participation of students in research projects. The research area on the Birkenfeld environment campus is very spacious, with an area of approximately 4,000 m². The amount of the funds gathered every year from third parties is impressive: the total scope on the environment campus already far exceeds the 5 million euro mark.
  • Support for founders
    Start-up office on the Environment Campus: This includes the teaching of basic knowledge about start-ups, as well as the design of the start-up process, including funding advice and post-start-up support, company management support. The key areas of support are set individually, depending on the requirements of the potential founders. Support relies on a broad network of competence partners, such as economic development agencies, continuing education institutions, banks and many companies and coaches.
