Study what you love

Since its foundation in 2008, HMKW University of Applied Sciences for Media, Communication and Business has been one of the leading universities for media-oriented study programs in Germany under private sponsorship. With immediate effect, the university will operate under the new name “Media University of Applied Sciences” (MU for short). The renaming is part of a comprehensive innovation and development program with which the university is continuing its successful growth of recent years and at the same time supporting its ambitions in the international education market.
