Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg Lörrach: Growth through knowledge

Growth through knowledge – this claim has been the motto of the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State Uni­versity (DHBW) in Lörrach ever since its formation in 1981. In the tri-national border region of Germany, France and Switzerland and directly adjacent to the Basle metropolitan region in Switzerland, the DHBW Lörrach has established itself as the leading practically oriented university in the region.

The trademark of the DHBW is its dual studies concept with alternate theoret­ical and practical units as well as its close cooperation with local compa­nies and institutions. The comprehensive range of degree courses covers accredited bachelor’s degree courses in the busi­­ness administration and engineering faculties, the on­­line master’s degree Intelligent Embedded Microsystems and the masters’ degree Master in Business Management.

All degree courses are oriented to the requirements of business, for example in the field of manufacturing and the services sector. The courses in healthcare form
the focal point of the studies, an area of major importance in this eco­­nomic region. The tri-national courses, in cooperation with the french Université de Haute-Alsace in the neighbouring Alsace and the Uni­versity of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, are unique in Germany.
