About us

Two locations - one success story:

Numerous alumni success stories provide the proof – practice-based undergraduate programmes and outstanding conditions for learning open up impressive career paths worldwide for graduates of the NORDAKADEMIE. What is more, the co-operation also pays off for the companies involved. Thanks to the „Hochschule der Wirtschaft“ (University of Applied Science funded by industry), they are able to recruit the best trainees from their own ranks.

There are many factors that prove we are one of the leading private universities in Germany:

  • NORDAKADEMIE was one of the first universities in Germany to achieve institutional accreditation (2012)
  • our MBA course was the first at a university in Germany to be accredited with the premium seal of the FIBAA for 5 years (2008)
  • NORDAKADEMIE has consistently been ranked one of the top universities
  • In 2015, NORDAKADEMIE was the first university in Germany to be certified by the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) and has since been a user in the sense of the German Sustainability Code.

With some 2000 students and more than 300 cooperating enterprises, the NORDAKADEMIE is one of the largest private universities in Germany.

The duales Studium programmes are offered on the campus in Elmshorn, Schleswig-Holstein, whereas the Master's programmes and futher education modules take place in the Dockland, which is an exceptionally designed building at the river Elbe with a spectacular view on the port area.
