Fachhochschule des Mittelstands
FHM is a private state-approved University of Applied Sciences. The FHM has been founded in 2000 by medium-sized enterprises and educational institutions. Since then, it has developed into one of the most successful private universities in Germany with a strong focus on the needs of SMEs.
The FHM’s goal is to provide students with necessary theoretical and hands-on skills for their later business career.
At present, there are approx. 5 100 students in BA, MA and MBA programs, 100 in doctoral programs, and 630 in scientific further education at the FHM.
Study programs cover 3 main areas: Economics; Media & Communication; Human Resources, Health and Social Work.
The FHM employs 95 professors and cooperates with about 240 experts from the business sector as guest lecturers.
Besides, innovative pedagogical approaches are tested and implemented that aim at fostering relevant transversal competences of the 21st century’s students, such as problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and self-reflection. In particular, lecturers at the FHM’ Media Department actively use Design Thinking methods and tools when delivering their learning sessions.
Finally, following its main mission – education of talented managerial candidates, FHM actively promotes entrepreneurial skills amongst students by incorporating related subjects (such as Business foundation) or students’ projects with SMEs into curricula.
