Why Karls?

Karlshochschule International University –or as we say: The Karls.
We are a state-accredited university of applied sciences with approx. 650 students, 16 professors and a network of lecturers from various industries and disciplines. As such, we see ourselves as an international and intercultural hub for collaboration and experience. With out interactive and (co-)creative approach to teaching and learning, we not only offer profound professional university education but also really focus on the critical thinking and the personal development of our students. Because only those who incorporate and embody responsibility in management and society, those who live it, can make a genuine difference. For a new holistic (re-)thinking and (re-)doing.
