4.7 out of 5 (13 ratings / 10 reviews) Karlsruhe, Germany

Learning contents are to be conveyed from the points of view of various disciplines and, if possible, through an interaction and discourse between representatives of different disciplines.

Master's Programmes

Business & Management (1)



The academic profile is characterized by pluralistic oriented research interests in economic and entrepreneurial acting and activities in organizational life-worlds and their socio-cultural, societal embedment. They act on the assumption that economic and organizational realities are constructed and staged (performed) by agents and agencies through attributions, interpretations and negotiations of senses and sense-making. For them these dimensions of meaning emerge co-creatively through the interacting agents as well as various stake-holders.


They see a department that views management from the cultural science perspective of performance and therefore proceeds in a manner that is multidisciplinary and integrates science. Performance is understood as a management concept here and is illuminated from very different points of view – e.g. sociological, esthetic, and ethical. I envision the terms “space” and “staging” being understood as aspects of performance and forming the starting point for scientific investigations.

Some of our students and alumni are also on hand to tell you about their daily life as a student, the practical semester, their experiences abroad and the process of application. Our professors offer short, interactive lectures to give you a taste of the very special way we teach at Karls. During a guided tour of the University you can also attend presentations from our student project groups, who have the opportunity to take part in company projects or even advise companies and other organizations while they are still students.

Library services

Imagine a library with no walls, and where the whole University is reservoir of knowledge. I imagine Karlshochschule is exactly like this. The centrally located library forms the heart of the University, and spaces for reading and studying can be found throughout the entire campus, and are available to all students and visitors.

Confessions of an Indecisive Person
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

What I found difficult at times, was a lack of coordination from the administrative perspective, caused by insufficient market analysis and a high degree of uncertainty. I would have also liked to have analyzed theoretical topics more in-depth, but this is the case for most universities due to the Bologna system. What I enjoyed was the smaller classrooms that facilitated...
