HDBW studies from a graduate's perspective
Nadine Leder completed her studies in spring 2018, after 7 semesters at HDBW, with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, specialising in International Management.
Immediately afterwards, she started her first job at the Knorr Bremse Group in Munich. She is now a Business Planning Professional there.
From her current perspective, she says about studying at Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft:
"Thanks to HDBW, I have had a great start to my career. Within my first half a year, I have already been transferred to a more extensive position, travel professionally and have gained an overall view of our company worldwide.
The good and professional relationship with HDBW continues and so hand-picked working students are still introduced to Knorr-Bremse."
We ensure shared study experiences
> Studying at the HDBW is above all about shared learning experiences.
> About direct and personal exchange with fellow students and teachers.

Dr. Evelyn Ehrenberger
"With us, it's not the average that counts, but the personality."
Your personality matters
The grade point average or even an NC are not the primary admission criteria for studying at HDBW.
Instead, we conduct a personal admission interview with you to match your interests and strengths, career plans and goals with the chosen degree programme. Together we will find out whether the subjects you have chosen suit you.
Studying at the HDBW then not only offers you the opportunity to acquire expert knowledge, but also to develop your personality.
Through active participation in group work and discussions, you can improve your communication skills and learn to defend and argue your opinion.
We encourage critical thinking and you also learn to question your convictions and consider new perspectives.
The entire HDBW university team will support you on this journey!

Private university? State-certified standard - with improved study conditions
The HDBW is a private and state-recognised university of applied sciences, which means that it is bound by the quality standards of the state higher education system and is supervised by the Bavarian Ministry of Science to ensure that its rules and standards are adhered to.
Studying at the HDBW is therefore no different from studying at a state university in terms of formal and content requirements.
However, study conditions at a private university like the HDBW are much more comfortable:
- Small study groups, thus there is
- sufficient room for discussions, group work, presentations
- More favourable supervision ratio of professor to student, which enables
- Individual feedback and coaching
