Accredited quality, small groups, pleasant environment

The NBS Northern Business School’s formation was initiated in 2007 by companies and trade associations within the metropolitan area of Hamburg. It offers its students two possible ways to receive a university degree: They can study either part-time while working at a company (the lectures then take place on Friday evenings and Saturdays) or traditionally full-time on weekdays.

All courses are organized in seminars and lectures. In contrast to many public universities, the students do not study in crowded lecture halls, but in small groups. This forms the basis of the support and personal dialogue with the lecturers and fellow students.

Our cornerstones are good teaching, individual support, small learning groups, a modern learning environment and a friendly working atmosphere. The employability of our students and a solid academic foundation are our declared goals.
