Master's Programmes



Since it was founded in 1994, the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) has evolved into an indispensable educational establishment in the Neu-Ulm/Ulm region. We now have more than 3,800 students in our three departments of Health Management, Information Management, and Business and Economics and our Centre for Professional and Postgraduate Studies.


The University of Applied Sciences Neu-Ulm trains its students in Bachelor's and Master's and further education courses in business management. Practical teaching, applied research projects and the early networking of students and graduates with potential employers are the focus of higher education.


To step up collaboration with business companies, the following centres have been created at the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU). These combine academic training and continuing education with applied research and business practice. Besides technology transfer, the centres strive to transfer knowledge between universities in Germany and abroad. Student and teaching and non-teaching staff exchanges and field trips, as well as common degree programmes and courses and cooperative doctorate programmes are instrumental in achieving this.


The Career Service of the Alumni & CampusClub keeps close contact with companies and former students of the HNU. Using this network we can offer excellent support in searching for internships or a job.

Students can use our board for jobs and internships to explore the current offers and select them according to different parameters.

Businesses can place advertisements free of charge and recruit future employees for their company.
