Student Life

Campus life

Berlin, Hamburg, and Iserlohn – the characters of these three cities could not be more different. You can choose a unique atmosphere in the capital, a northern German port city, or an American-style campus-based university, whichever you prefer.

The three University of Business Leadership campuses cater to a wide range of wishes: For example, the campus in Berlin is situated in the heart of the city, just off Potsdamer Platz. The campus in Iserlohn is surrounded by green spaces and offers lots of leisure-time activities at Seilersee. The campus in Hamburg is located in the Altona district, right next to the port and the Elbe River.

Sports facilities

Given its surroundings, the Iserlohn campus lends itself to interaction – regional, national, and international. On the grounds of the campus, located along the banks of Seilersee, 80 sun-lit apartments with a bathroom, kitchenette, and Internet access provide student accommodation. The extensive grounds are great for taking time-out between lectures. There are other amenities not every campus offers: jogging and recreational facilities, horse-riding stables, an ice-skating rink, and a gym directly neighboring the campus. The gym on campus offers free varsity sports, enabling all to escape the daily routine and meet other students.


University of Business Leadership has been state-accredited ever since its foundation as a private university. It thus meets the stringent requirements and specifications of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) and the FIBAA accreditation agency.
