HMKW

Introduction

Benefit from our dedication and expertise! HMKW University of Applied Sciences for Media, Communication and Management was founded by an experienced team of Higher Education professionals in 2008. HMKW is a private, state-approved university with institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities. All of its degree programs are additionally accredited by FIBAA (international agency for quality assurance in higher education). HMKW is active at three locations across Germany: in Berlin, Cologne and in Frankfurt (Main).

Our professors and lecturers will support you actively during your studies and will help set you off into a successful career. Your success is of great importance to us. Our degree programs are demanding but always rewarding.

The greatest challenge when leaving university and entering the job market is the lack of practical experience. At HMKW, we place great emphasis on work experience and practical experience to prepare graduates for successful careers. In our teaching, we combine a solid academic education with various real-life projects. We cooperate with various institutions and business partners in industry to complement the academic curriculum with real tasks and projects. Regular project weeks with renowned partners such as Sony, Deutsche Welle or ZDF are part of this strategy. Work by our students can be seen online, on TV and heard on the radio.

Our lectures will provide you with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. When graduating from HMKW, you will have gained a large range of competencies, giving you a definite advantage in the job market.

Our classic Bachelor degree programs can be completed in six semesters. Alternatively, you can choose a cooperative BA-study program (Duales Studium) which will take eight semesters to complete. This mode of study includes both an apprenticeship and a university degree. In either case, you will be proud of your hard work and success. Our Master programs, taught in English at our Berlin campus, continue the successful approach and high standards of our undergraduate degrees. Full-time, they can be completed in four semesters, part-time in six semesters.

HMKW takes part in ERASMUS programs and supports student exchanges as well as collaboration with students and universities in Europe and worldwide. Our network of partner universities is continually expanding.
