This year’s Berlin International Summer School at the HWR Berlin has got off to a successful start. With 139 participants from various countries, a new course is attracting particular interest: “Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management in Germany.” Focussing on the start-up scene, it is of special relevance to Berlin, which attracts increasing numbers of new businesses from every corner of the world.

Diversity, taking part, peer learning – the key principles of the "Students4Refugees – Summer School". This year, HWR students have given up their time to run workshops, discussion groups and language courses for refugees. The initiative represents a logical extension of the HWR Berlin’s guiding ethos – taking up social responsibility.

The BSEL open day at the end of May saw hundreds of school-leavers visit the university, marking the start of the application phase for the coming winter semester.

Two universities, three languages, over 200 successful graduates and a whole range of international experience. This is the output to date of the binational degree programme “International Management / Management International”.
