The NORDAKADEMIE is not just another full-time university. Rather, it is an institution that specializes in training the Bachelor in the dual model and the Master's part-time. Our dual study program is a unique symbiosis of academic education and qualified internships at one of our partner companies (such as Airbus).

The foundation of this course of study is an employment contract between the training company and the student. This model is particularly attractive for international talents who want to live and work in Germany long-term.

Our aim is to train the skilled workers of tomorrow for Germany. Our offer is therefore less suitable for those who just want to come to Germany to study and then return to their home country. The best thing about it: Our dual bachelor's degree program is free of charge for students. The partner companies cover both the tuition fees and a training allowance of between around €1,000 and €1,500 per month. This means you can concentrate fully on your studies and gain valuable practical experience at the same time.

NORDAKADEMIE , a renowned business school, has a clear recipe for success that comes into play at two locations. With over 30 years of experience, she specializes in training ambitious individuals for the most in-demand careers in business. The training we offer is practice-oriented, with excellent study conditions and a high success rate. Our graduates have gone on to careers around the world, regardless of where they studied with us. Our two Nordic locations offer optimal career opportunities.

The theoretical part of the dual bachelor's degree programs is offered on our sustainability campus in Elmshorn, Schleswig-Holstein, right outside Hamburg. The practical part is completed at our partner companies. The NORDAKADEMIE Campus Hamburg, on the other hand, houses our postgraduate, part-time master's degree and further training offers. Through this combination of theory and practice, we are able to train highly qualified professionals who are ready to succeed in the global economy.
