  • Special features regarding teaching
    The FHM organises its programmes by trimesters. Thanks to the FHM competence model, the curricula are interdisciplinary, academically compact and application-oriented. Small study groups and study group supervisors enable individual support for each student. Close integration of theory and practice is achieved by practical projects integrated in the course, a close network with medium-sized companies and practical experience of the teaching staff.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The FHM is anchored in the region and, as the partner of a globally expanding SME, also internationally oriented. The aim is to support SMEs in the internationalisation process through qualifying and promoting young executives on the basis of international experience and international research projects. The FHM maintains 60 partnerships, particularly with Asian and British universities, and a German-Asian SME Institute (DAMI). This is in particular demand among international Master's students.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    Swinburne University of Technology, Australia; University of California in Riverside, USA; Royal Agricultural University Cirencester, England

  • Support for founders
    The Start-Ups module with a final exam in business plan development is compulsory for all students. The FHM has set up an Institute for Start-Ups and Company Succession as an interdisciplinary, application-oriented research facility. Practical seminars and personal coaching sessions allow for start-up expertise and concepts to be utilised for succession arrangements. Our specialists from research and teaching are available to you. The IUG is also open to interested parties from outside the university.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    The FHM wants to make studying accessible for everyone, and is thus characterised by individual support and advice. This starts already with the selection process, where solutions for barrier-free access are worked out in a personal conversation with students with impairments. In formal terms, the statutory equalisation of disadvantages is implemented by the FHM exam regulations. All locations and facilities provide barrier-free access.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    Gender-appropriate teaching and research are enshrined in the FHM mission statement. The processes are designed in a gender-appropriate, cross-cultural manner free of discrimination. The FHM has ranked for years at the top of the CEWS rankings on gender equality at universities, because the majority (79%) of the academic staff are women, and a third of professors are women.
  • Other special features
    The trimester structure makes for a compact study experience. The FHM organises courses in small study groups and plans an optimal progress. As a result, over 90% of students complete their studies in the regular study period. The FHM specifically trains skilled workers and managers for SMEs. 67% of graduates go on to work for SMEs.
