You as a personality are welcome

Are you looking for an English-language study program with international perspectives? Do you want to take responsibility in society and the environment? Do you believe that even as an individual you can make a difference and have a voice?

Karlshochschule is a place where every student is encouraged to believe in their own dreams and visions, regardless of their social, academic and cultural background. It is a small, international world of over 70 countries. At the university, you can meet other cultures every day and practice your language skills by talking to your fellow students and colleagues.

In our small classes, teachers and students are a team. Input from professors, interactive group work and critical discussions rotate. We put great emphasis on responsible, sustainable practice and you will learn different points of view. You will not get the "right answer" from us. You will develop it for yourself and our colleagues will be your coaches.

So the question is, where do you want to go? What do you want to change in the world? You can get socially involved in one of our student initiatives or start one of your own. Try out different company projects, internships and do your semester abroad on another continent. At Karlshochschule you have many opportunities to live your life to the fullest, to take on responsibility and to realize your dream of a better world, step by step.

The Bachelor's programs - Where do I want to go?

Where would you like to make a difference in the world? At Karlshochschule, you can pursue your Bachelor's degree in two directions:


Economy: companies, organizations, communication, creativity

In the field of economy you put on the perspective of employees of companies and organizations or of self-employed people. Here you ask yourself questions like: What does a fair employer stand for? How does good teamwork work? How do I sell my product? What are the needs of my customers? How can a company be sustainable? What steps are important in my planning? How do I communicate appropriately and respectfully?


Society: international relations, politics and world economy

In the Society section, you sit back and look at world events through the eyes of journalists, politicians, and activists. Here you ask yourself questions like: How is globalization affecting the population and the environment? How are people, markets and laws interconnected? How can there be peace, well-being and justice around the world?
