In 1984 WHU’s founders decided to establish a university based on the principle “from business for business”. This idea of bringing professors and experts from the business world directly into the classroom is very much engrained in our DNA today. WHU is preparing students to take on leadership roles in industry and society. Our outstanding research standards demand practical relevance with outcomes that inspire.
We achieve our ambitious goals through our many and diverse collaborations - by bridging the gap between academic excellence and entrepreneurial practice. In this way everyone wins: WHU carries out research with its finger on the pulse of the corporate world, corporate partners get the cutting-edge scientific expertise they need, and students benefit from up-close contact with the "real world" of management.
