Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences, founded in 1848 by Carl Remigius Fresenius, and with its roots in the Fresenius Chemical Laboratory, can look back on an over 165-year-old tradition in privately funded education in Germany. In the 2019/2020 winter semester, almost 14,000 students were studying at Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Science.
With locations in Berlin, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Idstein, Munich, Wiesbaden, and New York, Hochschule Fresenius stands for practically oriented teaching closely linked to applied research and development. This holds true for the long-standing Faculty of Chemistry & Biology, the Faculties of Health & Social Affairs and of Economics & Media, both established in 1997/98, and also for the new Faculty of Design, which was integrated in 2013.
The International Business School of Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences is located in Cologne, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Munich and offers innovative programs for German and international students led in English, such as International Business Management (B.A.), Digital Management (M.A.), Industrial Engineering and International Management (M.Sc.), International Business Management (M.A) and International Tourism & Event Management (M.A.).
In the past decade, Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences has cultivated a culture of internationalization – this is evident within the university faculty and student body, in its learning objectives in the curricula and by providing international higher education opportunities to the undergraduate and graduate students. In 2016, Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences opened a study center in New York City, one of the first German institutions to do so thereby further strengthening our commitment to develop meaningful partnerships in the United States. Through our study center, Hochschule Fresenius students are provided an exceptional opportunity to have an integrated study abroad semester in their respective study programs with our partner universities there.
Along with New York, Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences offers two other excellent options to students to complete a semester abroad during their studies, either at University of Technology Sydney, in Australia, and at Shanghai University, Sydney Institute of Language and Commerce (SILC), in China. Each semester, Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences is also welcoming a number of international students at the various locations among Germany to spend one semester or the whole study program in Germany.
