The HHL spirit is underlined even through the location: a modern, entrepreneurial startup hub, downtown Cologne and the possibility to spend some quality-time with classmates outside the study rooms – this makes the weekends even better!

The multiple residential weeks where students from all campuses meet up at the HHL study location in Leipzig foster interconnectivity between the campuses.

For me, my studies at HHL laid a valuable foundation for meeting the daily challenges in business with substantiated specialist knowledge and finding effective and applicable solutions. One reason is the study program which is designed in such a way that it can be perfectly embedded in your professional work. Small groups and a fantastic team spirit support the compatibility.

Cologne – a vibrant combination of history and future

Looking back on more than 2000 years of history, Cologne stands out due to its cultural and architectural heritage. Several sacred buildings with the Cologne Cathedral (“Kölner Dom”) as the symbol of the city as well as the market place, the “Stapelhaus” and many more tell the story of this vibrant and open-minded metropolis. Many media and branch related companies settled down which is why Cologne is considered a media city (e.g. RTL Group). But the region is also known for its chemical, pharma (Bayer) and automobile industry (FORD), as well as for machine construction. Within the past few years, Cologne developed to a promising high-potential location for biotechnology and life sciences.
