Freedom of teaching and research
At the university, the principle of freedom of teaching and research applies without restriction. The university's governing bodies respect and promote this principle and create the organisational and financial conditions for an adequate teaching and research environment.
The decisive guideline for the development and advancement of the curricula is the employability of the students. The courses of study are optimised in constant dialogue with representatives of the business world and students. Small learning groups and an intensive regular dialogue with lecturers ensure individual support and the promotion of the team spirit of the students.
An activating and performance-enhancing environment also creates the prerequisites for teaching and learning at a high level. This is ensured by modern equipment and a campus designed close to nature with recreational and sports facilities.
International and intercultural
The preparation of students for tasks in an international and intercultural environment is also a particular concern of the university. To this end, NORDAKADEMIE offers a comprehensive range of foreign languages, courses with an international and intercultural focus and promotes the organisation of semesters abroad through close cooperation with foreign partner universities.
