Hochschule Fresenius
Our Tradition – Your Future – Since 1848

With locations in Cologne, Hamburg, Munich, and Idstein, study centers in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main and New York, and more than 12,000 students and about 1,000 vocational students, Hochschule Fresenius is one of Germany’s largest and most renowned privately run higher education institutions. A practical focus, course contents and training that are both innovative and meet the requirements of the job market, small study groups, prestigious corporate partners, and an extensive ALUMNI NETWORK are just some of the advantages Hochschule Fresenius has to offer. With its main campus in Idstein near Wiesbaden, Hochschule Fresenius has a history spanning more than 168 years. In 1848, Carl Remigius Fresenius founded the “Chemisches Laboratorium Fresenius”, which from the outset was devoted to both practical laboratory work and education. Since 1971, the state-recognized, privately run University of Applied Sciences has been offering training, continued professional education, and study programs in Economics & Media, Health & Social Care, Chemistry & Biology, Design, and onlineplus. The Faculty of Economics & Media others both part-time and full-time Bachelor’s and Master’s programs in Cologne, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Idstein, and Frankfurt am Main.

In fall 2010, Hochschule Fresenius was awarded institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities for its “broad and innovative range of Bachelor’s and Master’s programs”, “its internationality”, and its “impressive focus on practical work experience”. In April 2016 Hochschule Fresenius has been reaccredited for another five years.

State Recognition

The German Council of Science and Humanities regularly evaluates Hochschule Fresenius. The institutional accreditation awarded by the Council of Science and Humanities forms the basis of state recognition by attesting to an institution’s academic performance as well as its quality control procedures. The successful accreditation of Hochschule Fresenius also affords protection to its students as well as to private and public institutions in their capacity as future employers of its graduates.

By the time I finished my Master in Digital Management at the Hochschule Fresenius, I quickly realized how sought after postgraduates like us were. I can highly recommend Hochschule Fresenius to everyone interested in entrepreneurship and startups!
