Study in the heart of Europe

The HFU Business School is located close to the Black Forest, one the most picturesque regions in Germany and a popular tourist area. Local residents of the twin city of Villingen-Schwenningen are known for their southern German hospitality and many former students have made lifelong friendships here. People here consider their leisure time as important as their work. Achieving a healthy work/life balance means investing time not only in studying hard but also in recharging your batteries. The Black Forest at our front door offers hiking, cycling and mountain biking, and the activities available through the university, from canoeing and yoga, to salsa dancing and football, keep you fit for your studies.

And for city culture, Stuttgart, Freiburg, Constance and Zurich are only an hour away by train.

European business exposure

The region is home to many top global corporations including Porsche, Daimler, SAP, Bosch, Aesculap and Hugo Boss. Many of our foreign graduates have joined these and other such companies such as Hewlett-Packard Europe, Adidas, Puma and Marquardt as part of their extended international business experience here.
