What

we Do

Our offering
at a glance

Our learners are at the centre of everything we do. We provide maximum flexibility for their learning experience by offering a well-diversified portfolio of different study formats and courses along two segments: IU for Individuals and IU for Enterprises.
In addition, we foster partnerships with national and international corporations, the German Government and global strategic partners to provide learners with future-job oriented skills.

With our overall course portfolio – ranging from stackable, modular offerings to Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes – we capture global market trends in business administration or social work. In addition, we constantly develop innovative education content for the digital age, such as growth hacking, artificial intelligence and FinTech.
