At XU, interaction is the focus – after all, it’s your ideas that we want to develop and get started with you. It takes more than theoretical knowledge: experience and inspiration! State-of-the-art learning exercises give you access to the knowledge and current market knowledge of our experts – first-hand.

In this way you have from the beginning the best conditions to make initial contacts in the economy. We bring you in touch with potential employers of tomorrow and accompany you on the way to the first job – whether at home or abroad.

In addition, we connect you across all industries with thought leaders and decision-makers in the field of digitization and technology. In doing so, we attach great importance to training you not only as a specialist in one area of ​​expertise. Here you will learn everything about digital transformation in an interdisciplinary manner.
