Organisation and Management Hanze University of Applied Sciences
Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanze UAS), Groningen, has establishments in Groningen, Assen, Leeuwarden and Amsterdam with approximately 27000 students and 3000 staff members. The name Hanze UAS relates to a once driving force in terms of business and trade. Many years ago, the Hanseatic League was essential for international trade, cooperation and contacts. This was the case in the Netherlands and many other countries, such as Germany and Scandinavia. The Netherlands had many Hanseatic cities, including Groningen.
Therefore, the term 'Hanze' can be firmly related to the past as well as to the city of Groningen. The logo also has historical aspects to it. The slanted gothic letter H in Orange can be found everywhere Hanze UAS related. Take a look at the film below for a deeper look at Hanze University of Applied Sciences.
