Karlshochschule International University (or as we call it: the Karls) is a foundation-owned, private, non-profit university. It is accredited by the Wissenschaftsministerium (Ministry of Science) of the Baden-Württemberg state and also has a Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) Systems Accreditation. This boutique university can trace its history to 1903, though it was reimagined as Karlshochschule in 2009 with a cultural perspective on management at its core and a strong international outlook. The Karls is a different kind of university for people who are or who want to be different; specifically, for those who want to make a difference.

I imagine borders exist only in our minds!

This program reinforces the fact that though globalization seems to be taking over, the local cultures are still important as they get more networked. This may sound unusual, but it applies to companies and organizations. If you are interested in a degree program that considers this viewpoint in terms of management theory, then join us, as we envision that tomorrow’s international companies will be different.

Appreciating Changing Circumstances:

To fully appreciate these changing circumstances, Karls expanded this degree program from classical economy theory, to include subjects that explore intercultural marketing & communication, cultural theory, international collaboration and intercultural competence. At the end of your studies, you will be able to mediate between different cultures, to generate worthwhile synergies. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn a new language at the Karls, but you would have also understood how to communicate internationally with intercultural competence.... [-]

(Re-)Thinking Management & Society

Our International Relations program is looking for students who are passionately interested in what's happening in the world and want to contribute positively by developing solutions for the major global challenges and finding peaceful resolutions to a conflict. If you like to soak up new information like a sponge and are willing to throw yourself into any new political debate, then this is the place for you. We will explore the major issues our world is facing, especially topics like peace, prosperity, environmental protection, justice and human rights. You should be socially engaged and curious about other cultures and their ways of thinking. You must want to build bridges as we believe in diplomacy as a driving force on the conflict-ridden world stage. Our students want to end conflict and exploitation peacefully, negotiating resolutions with words, knowledge and values. They are the future intermediaries between cultures and their respective interests.... [-]
