As numerous surveys have shown, those who study at Furtwangen University receive a top rated education.

Furtwangen University developed from the ‘Großherzoglich Badische Uhrmacherschule’ (Archduke of Baden Clockmakers‘ School), founded in 1850, to the ‘Staatliche Ingenieurschule für Feinwerktechnik’ (the State Engineers‘ School for Mechatronics) in 1947. In 1963, the range of study programs was extended to include Electrical Engineering, and in 1968, Computer Science was added as the first program of its kind in Germany. Strong demand led to the foundation of a second campus in Villingen-Schwenningen in 1988, when the Mechanical Engineering and International Business Faculties were added. With Tuttlingen the Furtwangen university opens a third campus by the end of 2009.

Today Furtwangen University offers a 18 bachelor and 9 master’s in the field of computer sciences, business, engineering, media and technology.

We are situated in the heart of Europe, close to France, Switzerland and Lake Constance, an area home to many global players including Porsche, Daimler, SAP and Hugo Boss.

We are proud of the numerous awards we have received for the uniqueness of our study programs: In May 2006 and 2008 the International Business program received first place in a survey among the largest international corporations in Germany assessing the “employability” of students.

Since the beginning of the year the name Faculty of International Business changed to HFU Business School. It reflects our faculty’s standing as a firmly-established centre for excellence in an increasingly-globalised educational marketplace. It emphasizes the long-term commitment to offering business degrees tailored to the needs of the international job market.
