During your Studies

We assist you to love what you do, so you can do great

Intense Study Days

Surrounded by peers from different parts of the globe, who also work in multinational companies across all branche,s you will have intense months during your studies.

In every module at the Campus in the heart of Karlsruhe, you will have lectures, labs, and case studies the whole day. Good to know: Unlike other study programs, such as distance learning universities you will not only benefit from the fun and motivation arising from studying with your peers, but also not having to prepare for the next module inbetween the modules. After the exam at the end of the module, you can go back to work, apply what you learned, or travel in Germany and Europe. You can see an exemplary agenda of a study day on the right hand side.

Good to know: The campus is in the center of the town and right at the entrance of a big park. So you can relax in the park or go shopping and eating in the shopping streets. During your lectures and in the short breaks you will very much appreciate Marion providing you with yogurts and cereals in the morning, little snacks and fruits during the day, and of course coffee, tea, fruit juices, and water.

Growing Together

Grow together as a team and grow with the challenges. In the international environment, cooperation in interdisciplinary teams is trained as a sideline. Encouraged by social events or get-togethers in each module, you will widen and strengthen your network during e.g. bowling, canoeing, archery, joint dinners, and much more.

Additionally company visits, fireside chats, executive talks will be offered. At the end of your studies, there will be a great final excursion with a one- to two-day visit to a town and several activities.

Events contribute to the Agenda

At the start of your studies, you will be welcomed at HECTOR School with a two-day-long welcome event. You will get to know the HECTOR School team and your peers as well as how to navigate through your studies, the campus, and the city. As an experience of the last year's welcome events, let us assure you that we will have a great time together with food and pleasure.
