Overview Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Stuttgart
The Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Stuttgart (Duale Hochschule Baden-Wuerttemberg Stuttgart, DHBW Stuttgart) is one of the largest universities in the Stuttgart and Upper Neckar regions. Together with its campus in Horb it is the largest of nine locations of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW). Based on the US State University System, the organisational structure of DHBW is unique in Germany as it comprises both the central (DHBW headquarters) and the local level (DHBW locations and campuses).
In cooperation with about 2,200 carefully selected enterprises and social institutions, the corporate (or dual) partners of the DHBW Stuttgart, the Schools of Business, Engineering, Social Work and Healthcare offer more than 60 nationally and internationally approved Bachelor and Master study programmes. Their most important feature is the integration of theory and practical experience: Students regularly switch between theoretical phases at the university and practical phases at the work placement. In addition, DHBW Stuttgart offers postgraduate Master programmes with on-the-job training.
