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.

Why Berlin?

That’s an easy question: Berlin is diverse. No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to be able to pursue them here. At the same time, education and living standards are high. And the cost of living is still affordable compared to other capitals around the world. Admittedly, it’s still not possible to speak English everywhere in the city and be understood. However, Berlin is becoming increasingly international, if only because many people of different nationalities live together here. We look forward to seeing you!
