Special features regarding teachingThe 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 orientationThe 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). The offers are particularly popular with international Masters students.
Special features regarding the equipmentThere are several PC pools with the latest hardware and software available to students, which can be used in courses and practical projects; the entire university is equipped with WiFi. The equipment in the seminar rooms is state of the art. The media campus with news, TV, radio and photo studios is available to all students. All students have online access to the Statista statistics portal. Students receive access to a variety of literature databases, newspaper articles and e-books from the university network.
Special features regarding research and developmentThe Department of Personnel / Health / Social Affairs at the FHM and its research activities are characterised by a special diversity. Employees are currently working on a wide variety of research projects from a wide range of scientific disciplines (Psychology, Nutrition, Sustainability, Social Issues).
Support for foundersThe 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.
Other special featuresThe FHM provides recognition models in professional education/continuing education for specific programmes, thus reducing study periods and tuition fees. The trimester structure makes for a compact study experience. The FHM organises the studies in small study groups and provides timetables, ensuring sufficient capacities for each module. Teachers recruited from industry allow for an optimal transfer of knowledge between the universities and companies.
