Zeppelin University

As a state-recognized university under private sponsorship, we teach and research between the scientific disciplines of business, culture and politics, consistently interdisciplinary, individualized and international.



The still young history of Zeppelin University (ZU) is a success story. After its founding in 2003, not only did its study programs regularly land at the top of the CHE university rankings, but its innovative and socially relevant research and teaching, as well as its ZU ZF Campus in Fallenbrunnen, inaugurated in 2014, have been showered with prizes and awards.


We prefer good in-between solutions – don’t you? The four undergraduate degree programs at Zeppelin University  (ZU) are designed for generalists who are also capable of specialization.It has been empirically proven that focusing on research is the only way to successfully develop practical skills. Studies prove that a focus on research in graduate programs positively influences both the HR managers’ perception of the employee and the quality of the education itself, as well as on average starting salaries (which are around 1,000 U.S. dollars higher). 


Zeppelin University (ZU) understands science not as a mere activity or profession, but as an expression of a mindset committed to argument and plural discourse.

In teaching and research, ZU emphasizes a transfer of social perspectives into science as well as the transfer of scientific knowledge into practical life contexts.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was great to be part of a community of mostly very engaged people and I loved the discussions and events in and around university. The course was very high quality academically. The only thing I did not like as much is that it is a four year´s course but others love this about it.

I enjoyed the time I studied
