Our programs

At BiTS, we offer bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, both full-time and part-time while in employment. Two guiding principles apply to all programs: practical learning and thinking along international lines.

Practical learning

In addition to well-known scientists, many famous personalities from a variety of industries teach at BiTS. The university has close ties with business, and a lively exchange of information takes place. One priority is to incorporate as many of the requirements of the job into your studies as soon as possible. Our active exchange also gives you the opportunity to observe how successful people do business.

Thinking along international lines

National boundaries have long blurred in the world of business. Consequently, it is BiTS’s policy look beyond lines on a map. Thus, a semester of study abroad is a fixture of the bachelor’s degree program, and the International Summer School of the master’s degree program. This stay abroad is organized in close collaboration with our partner universities in the global Laureate Network. In addition, meeting students from all over the world is part of everyday life at BiTS.

Our campuses

Berlin, Hamburg, and Iserlohn – the characters of these three cities could not be more different. You can choose a unique atmosphere in the capital, a northern German port city, or an American-style campus-based university, whichever you prefer. After all, deciding on a course and a university is also governed by place: The question “What do I want to be?” is closely linked with the question “Where do I want to be?” for many people.

The three BiTS campuses cater to a wide range of wishes: For example, the campus in Berlin is situated in the heart of the city, just off Potsdamer Platz. The campus in Iserlohn is surrounded by green spaces and offers lots of leisure-time activities at Seilersee. The campus in Hamburg is located in the Altona district, right next to the port and the Elbe River.

Our aims

Our most important aim is your success. We are there to see to it that you are ideally prepared to launch your professional career and to make your own way. With this in mind, we educate our students to become young professionals with an enterprising spirit and approach.

How knowledge and skills are taught

Today, you need a combination of abilities to forge a successful career. Substantive knowledge and social skills, management know-how, and confidence at an international level are the basis for a managerial career in the free economy. These days, enterprising young managers with a good theoretical education and who have acquired relevant practical experience both at home and abroad during their studies are sought-after in all fields of business. We equip you to meet these requirements.

The results speak for themselves: Graduates of BiTS enter employment very quickly.
