HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, founded in 1898 as Germany’s first business school, was the birthplace of modern management education. From its inception, HHL has been committed to rigorous management instruction and research, and quickly developed an international reputation.
The philosophy behind all our programs is to focus on the student by offering close student-faculty interaction, in-depth business and academic experience, and at the same time developing the students’ leadership potential and networking skills.
We continue to build on our highly successful model and reputation for excellence. We update our curriculum according to the needs of global employment markets to further internationalize our expertise and keep HHL at the forefront of business education and professional training. We invite you to become part of HHL’s promising future.
At HHL, the career service is run by the Employer Relations / Career Service department, which is responsible for gathering all the relevant essential or useful information on which our advice to students is based. Our services begin when the student is admitted to HHL and continues throughout the studies. Additionally, we also offer our alumni advice in all career related questions through our Alumni Career Service.
On our campus, you can meet students from about 60 nations. Our students not only benefit from seven active student initiatives and an excellent career service, but also from the know-how and the network of nearly 2,500 alumni. Thus, our business school thrives on variety, on the breadth of ideas and from the diversity of the people studying here.
Compared to other German and European metropoles, accommodation in Leipzig is very reasonable. Many HHL students choose to live in a private apartment or in a shared flat during their stay in Leipzig, while the international students prefer to live in the student dorms, since almost all rooms are furnished. Most of them are located close to the HHL campus and to the city center. The student dorm on the Mainzer Straße is located just five minutes walking distance from the campus.
The HHL Library supports teaching and research at HHL with reliable information services focusing on business and economics. The resources of the HHL Library are available to students and academic staff 24 hours a day. That is, books can be read and borrowed even at midnight! Non-stop access to the Library’s online resources is provided within the HHL network via the Library’s page on the intranet of HHL, eCampus.
Leipzig is one of the most dynamic and vibrant cities in Europe. The Guardian recently described Leipzig as „Germany’s boom-town” and the German newspaper Die Welt confirmed it, calling Leipzig “the city overtaking the rest of the republic”. Located at the crossroads of the historic European trade routes, Leipzig prides itself on its 1,000-year tradition of commercial vitality and on its reputation as a meeting place for science and arts. Beyond its modern infrastructure, what stands out about Germany's fastest growing city is the rapidly expanding economy with its world-famous brands such as Porsche, BMW, DHL and Amazon.
The center for university sport of the University of Leipzig (Zentrum für Hochschulsport) offers a comprehensive sports program that can be enjoyed by HHL students. You can choose between 420 courses of 150 different sport disciplines at very reasonable prices. The program consists of health, fitness, combat, athletic, climbing, relax and dance courses as well as water and snow sports.
HHL students have the great advantage that the sports facilities are located on the campus beside our lecture halls, so they can always take a break and relax their mind while swimming, playing tennis or doing aerobics.
Students at HHL show strong and diverse commitment. In this context, they established a catalog of initiatives and events besides their curriculum. Amongst these extracurricular activities are:
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
