Mission statement

Creative. Innovative. Competent.

Education is personality development. We offer our students an excellent academic education, which enables them to successfully shape their future path in life. The studies are practice-oriented and take place mainly in small groups, which guarantees personal attention.

We understand education as a creative process for the development of talents and gifts in the triad of knowledge, ability and responsible action. Creative thinking and its skilful application lead to productive achievements. We want to promote these for the benefit of the individual and at the same time place them at the service of society.

The university is a central place where we meet to share new ideas and experiences - in a constructive, critical and respectful manner.

Social variety and diversity are valued and discrimination of any kind is countered. Tolerance and respect characterize the actions of all members of the university. Through cooperation with international partners, we cultivate intercultural exchange.

Equal opportunities and inclusion.
We promote gender-equitable study and working conditions, i.e. equal rights and equal development opportunities for all people in all areas of the university. We see the promotion of equality as a cross-sectional task at all levels.

Work-life balance.
We create framework conditions and offers in order to harmonise the interests of the university, the working and learning environment and the personal life situation.
