Management: Leipzig Graduate School of Management

HHL is one of the leading business schools in Germany and consistently places among the top three in different rankings.

HHL offers a two-year Diploma Program in Business Administration as well as an 18-month Master of Science Program in Management. Two MBA (Master of Business Administration) programs give professionals a 15-month full-time or two years part-time course. A three-year Doctoral Program completes the range of programs at HHL. In cooperation with its subsidiary HHL Executive, the school also provides company-specific executive education programs.

The school is located on the campus of Germany’s third oldest and ever-expanding university, the University of Leipzig. Close by is Leipzig’s new stadium and arena complex, host of the World Cup soccer tournament in 2006 and where top rock groups like the Rolling Stones regularly perform. Leipzig is famous for its student nightlife – e.g., the cavernous student club, the Moritz Bastei, or the bar and café scene on nearby Gottsched Strasse and Barfußgäßchen – and for having the largest selection of high-quality, moderately priced housing available anywhere in urban Germany.

HHL also boasts an ideal ratio of teaching staff to students (5:1), more than 80 partner universities, mentoring by alumni and 24-hour access to services on campus. Furthermore, with a career service that has close relations to leading companies, students can benefit from the experience, contacts and advice, as they enter the job market.

At the crossroads of historic European trade routes, Leipzig prides itself on a 1000-year tradition of economic vitality and of being a meeting place for science and the arts. In recent years Leipzig has developed into an internationally attractive place for global business players like BMW, Porsche or DHL. Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Goethe, Schiller, Nietzsche have all lived and worked in Leipzig, which is also the birthplace of Wagner, and left their legacies. Music and literature thrive today in Leipzig’s famed Gewandhaus concert hall, the Opera House, the Schauspielhaus theater, and at the annual Book Fair. Entrepreneurship, trade fair management and such cutting edge fields as biotechnology have found a welcome home here too.
