The Karls in Brief

ReThinking Management and Society 

Learn to tread new paths!

Conventional ways of thinking and doing in business and society are not for us. By building on best practices, theories and concepts, you will learn to think critically about the realities of today and find disruptive solutions to complex problems presented by practice in a global context. Your immersion will make you ready to create the Future of Tomorrow.


See our name work for you!

According to CHE Ranking, the Karls is among Germany's top management universities. All Management B.A. programs have been awarded the FIBAA Premium seal. Our Management M.A. has even gained the highest ever score in FIBAA's initial-accreditation history to date. In addition, the Karls as a whole is system-accredited. That can only be to your advantage.


Benefit from the personality of our network!

Our network is more than ink on paper. It lives in the relationships we cherish with our peers. Through various means, we consistently expand our partnerships. And because people mean more to us than mere business the connection with our partners is intimate: something you will benefit from in personal encounters, endless support, and caring appreciation.


Thrive in an environment filled with people from all over the world!

It is not only about international students, services and teaching staff. The Karls has an immersive approach to embrace how an organization needs to perform within and across various cultures and contexts. It is about re-thinking your role in complex multi-ethnic and interdisciplinary environments.

Learning Environment 

Join a space full of innovativeness and diversity!

The Karls' way of learning is special in its modern and creative atmosphere. You will be part of new experiences in a space where diverse cultures, different perspectives and critical thinking meet. You will engage in interactive seminars and collaborative projects, exposing yourself to beyond-the-rim ideas, reflections and discourses.


Step up, together! 

The Karls is a gathering point for open, highly motivated individuals. For people who want to make a change. Smart, fun and engaging ideas are just as important as the cooperative will of everyone involved to create something together. So please do initiate, develop, embrace and embody transformation at this University and make a difference.


Grow to become an experienced practitioner!

Before you graduate you will have been involved in a variety of hands-on real-world and simulative projects. Not to mention the networking events where you can mingle with and get a taste of what it is like to act on the world stage. Whilst we provide support and a basis for new connections, it is really up to you to make use of your personality and experiences.

Personal Development 

Develop into your own goals and ambitions!

The Karls community gives you the opportunity to transform, embrace and share your experiences in a creative but critical way. This place is a platform for your ambitions: to follow your own path, to incorporate the mindset to fulfil your goals in life, and to develop the confidence to succeed in everything you do.

Approaching people, being in touch, working together and being appreciated could not be easier or more enjoyable than here.
