Why HTW Berlin?

Small groups
At HTW Berlin, you'll never find mass lectures with large numbers of students. You'll study in groups with a maximum of 40 other students. The “big” study programmes such as Business Administration and Business Communication Management are split into “streams” of students. This means that even for these subjects you’ll learn in normal class-sized groups.

Practical relevance

Furthermore, in addition to being academically qualified in their field, without exception, all of our professors can draw on their own practical experience in their profession.
