WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management is a leading German business school with an exceptional national and international reputation. Founded in 1984, WHU offers academic programs and continuing education for executives throughout their career. Founded in 1984 on the initiative of the Koblenz Chamber of Commerce and Industry, WHU has become a model for future-oriented research and teaching in business economics.
WHU means ‘Excellence in Management Education’ and pursues this goal in its three core areas of activity: academic programs, research, and knowledge transfer in general management. WHU’s graduates, research and profitable collaboration with business partners demonstrates the School’s success in achieving its mission.
Our students embody the term ‘WHU Spirit’. Their intellectual, cultural, and social commitment can be seen in about 30 student clubs that impact Vallendar, Düsseldorf, Germany, and the world. They have organized their own conferences, initiated thoughtful social projects, given theater performances, and welcomed exchange students.
In the last academic year, we paid particular attention to our core brand values: excellence, community, cosmopoliteness, and entrepreneurship. Our positioning based on these core values is ‘Courage and Commitment’. Courageous and committed, we want to shape all areas of WHU and push it towards more excellence.
