The clear concept behind the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences is particularly compelling because it systematically brings together science and innovation.
During our commonly developed cooperation programs students would study one year at their local university and the second year at Anhalt University. In Germany the program is entirely in English.
A German Master Degree will improve students’ job opportunities in the E.U., especially applying in German companies located all over the world. Students are getting insights into the German culture, including the German “values” for quality, structure and sustainability. Thus, they can support to build bridges between cultures in their future roles.
