FOM Hochschule

Introduction

Offering professionals the chance to gain a state-recognised university degree without having to give up work or restrict their professional activity – this has been the objective of FOM University of Applied Sciences since its foundation in 1991.

Today, with more than 35,000 students, FOM is Germany's biggest private institute of higher education. It has been accredited by the German Council of Science and Humanities, Germany's most important advisory body for science policy. At the beginning of 2012, FOM was also the first private university in Germany to be accredited as an institution by the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). This seal of approval from one of the world's most important higher education assessment agencies proves that FOM's quality management satisfies the highest international standards. FOM is supported by the non-profit Stiftung BildungsCentrum der Wirtschaft. Experienced lecturers from the academic world and industry give on-site lectures at over 30 study centres throughout Germany. FOM University of Applied Sciences is headquartered in Essen. The university is consequently under the supervision of the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Students at the FOM attend traditional classes – in the evenings and at weekends at FOM study centres parallel to their job, training or internships. The decision to offer on-site classes was a conscious one by FOM: in contrast with distance courses, for example, students who study in the evenings or at weekends have personal contact with their lecturers and fellow students. After classes, they can share experiences or discuss problems and questions. This helps them transfer their newly acquired knowledge to practice – and it increases students' motivation.

Another benefit of studying in the evenings or at weekends is that fixed lecture and exam dates as well as group dynamics are known to boost performance. Study groups can support and motivate individual participants. Moreover, contact to fellow students and lecturers helps students develop their own personal network.

The guiding principle of the FOM


With its offer of studying while working or completing an apprenticeship, the FOM sees itself asa complementary addition to the German university landscape. It offers outstanding study programmes with conditions that are appropriate for and attractive to target groups, and it focuses on courses that can be completed while students work or undergo vocational training.

Study programmes can only be attractive to students and companies if a high standard of teaching and research is guaranteed and the organisational conditions of on-site study are tailored to the special needs of students who work and study simultaneously. This also includes affordable tuition fees.

FOM engages in applied research with a special emphasis on the fields of human resource management, career and education and skills development in small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). Other areas of research are developed in line with FOM's study programmes. Research output is integrated into teaching activities.

FOM ensures that the goals based upon this mission statement are achieved with a comprehensive quality management system that embraces quality planning, quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement, and which guarantees excellent standards in all aspects of its goals.
