University of applied sciences Brandenburg

University of applied sciences Brandenburg

The university of applied sciences is a young university with a modern profile. You can study in a very pleasant atmosphere. This is ensured by the former cuirassier barracks, which was renovated and turned into a center of Business and Economics. The small number of approximately 2,300 students allows project-based learning and thereby also strengthens the team spirit of the learning units.
