Our Executive MBA programme, a seminar series and international summer and autumn schools provide excellent opportunities for professionals to expand their know-how.
KLU is unique for its international faculty and research expertise in logistics, supply chain management, and related aspects of business. It ranked among the top universities in the 2014 Handelsblatt research ranking of business administration faculties in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Hamburg is a popular city among German students. Its cultural spectrum rivals that of Berlin. Students can experience the diverse nightlife offered at the Reeperbahn, enjoy great music at the Elbjazz and Dockville festivals, relax in the cafés and trendy bars in the St Georg and Schanze districts and watch the Hamburg sunset at the city's popular harbour beach clubs.
With over four million inhabitants, the Hamburg metropolitan area is among the biggest winners to profit from the opening up of Eastern Europe and worldwide globalisation. This metropolis on the water is the most easterly of the northern seaports, making it the ideal port for Eastern Europe. As a global hub serving overseas countries, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Baltic area, Hamburg benefits from its central position at the confluence of the global trade handled by European logistics.
Hamburg is also considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its extensive stretches of water and green parks and the historic residential areas are renowned. There are many attractive possibilities for leisure activities. These special qualities, together with the maritime atmosphere and its proximity to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, make Hamburg a jewel among international cities.
The historic core of Hamburg's port is the "Speicherstadt," the former warehouse area, where the world's most beautiful warehouse complex was built at the end of the 19th century. Against this background, the new HafenCity is being constructed on the former harbour area, and it is right here - in the centre of Hamburg and right on the waterfront - where Kühne Logistics University is located. Students find everything they need in order to study and feel comfortable. This includes superbly equipped interactive teaching and study rooms, state-of-the-art facilities, broadband wireless access, a well-stocked library, and access to relevant online databases for research.
Enjoy the advantages of a private university: instruction in small groups, a favourable student-faculty ratio, easy access to important contacts, modern infrastructure and a comprehensive range of services.
