Specialisation: Industry and trade
Businesses in trade and industry are increasingly orienting themselves according to customer values, which means that employees in the sector are faced with new challenges. Process optimisation, higher demands from international markets and more competitors from abroad also intensify competition. Flat hierarchies as well as more thinking around cost and utility determine the course of business in the globalised world. The HWTK provides students with comprehensive insight into businesses in the industrial context to prepare and qualify them for leadership functions. Professionally experienced experts provide insight into business operations and deliver practical knowledge through relevant case studies.

Study the way you want!
Being flexible isn’t just important for a successful career; it’s also a guiding principle at the hwtk. When you study at our University, you can organise your studies to suit your needs. Decide what’s best for you: classic full-time studies, integrated theory and practice in the dual work–study model or distance learning that is independent of time and place.
Should your circumstances change and you want to switch to another model for your studies, this is possible at the end of a semester.
Dual work–study model
The dual work–study model incorporates practical experience: You spend half of the week with us at the University and the other half working at a cooperating company. The split-week model: the perfect mix of theory and practice!
At the hwtk we believe in hands-on experience. That’s why our full-time programmes have been set up with two intensive study days per week: This way you have enough time left during the week to gain work experience.
