Game changing

We are meeting the demands of individual students by interweaving learning with lifestyle instead of disrupting it.

We envision a knowledge-driven world of lifelong learning based on a flexible portfolio of core schooling, up-skilling, reskilling, and retraining. By reimagining our curriculum, operating model, service delivery, back office, IT strategy, and student support, we are doing at scale what has never been done before.

Hypergrowth drives opportunity for all

We have grown to become the largest University of Applied Sciences in Germany since our foundation in 1998. This metric is indisputable proof that we are leading a historical shift in education delivery and our mission is real.

 

With over 75,000 students, we are more passionate than ever. As gratifying and humbling as it is for us, we plan to continue growing.
Like being attached to a rocket ship in unchartered space, we cling on tight, scream with excitement, while keeping the whole thing under control. Such rapid growth presents some clear opportunities and some we don’t know yet. We are looking for people who won’t be afraid of the journey but see the opportunities and seize them.

Smart leadership attracts smart people.

IU leadership clears the path for everyone to feel confident in sharing their raw ideas. We go beyond asking people to speak up by supporting curiosity and discovery and by capturing the energy a new idea brings. We champion ideas that spur innovation, and we recognise and celebrate everyone’s contributions. And, we do it with empathy, integrity, courage, and humility.
