As a non-profit public limited company, the NORDAKADEMIE University of Applied Sciences is directly supported by well-known companies and the employers' association NORDMETALL. With over 2,500 students, the NORDAKADEMIE, founded in 1992, is one of the largest private universities with face-to-face courses of study in Germany. Top positions in the CHE university ranking and the seal of system accreditation confirm the excellent quality of teaching and the study conditions at the university.


In 2013, the NORDAKADEMIE Graduate School was founded and has found its home in Hamburg's Dockland directly on the Elbe River. The part-time master's degree courses, continuing education courses and certificate courses are organised from there, so that course participants can enjoy the beautiful Hamburg harbour panorama during lectures and seminars.

In cooperation with universities in Germany and abroad, NORDAKADEMIE also offers a part-time doctoral programme with a focus on economics.
