Who we areRequest information

A new time needs a new university

If digitisation and innovative technologies are changing our society, if the future of work depends on new digital skills and if whole sectors of the economy are in upheaval – shouldn’t our education system also change and provide answers?

We think so

The XU Exponential University near Berlin is Germany’s first university that focuses exclusively on digitization and technology. At Studio Five on the premises of Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam, we have created a place that focuses specifically on the training, promotion and networking of future heroes* of digital change. Our university in Potsdam is the perfect place for you!

We are officially recognized

The XU Exponential University of Applied Sciences was officially recognized by the Ministry of Science, Research, and Culture of the state of Brandenburg in 2018. The accreditation was carried out by the Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA), which confirmed the development of sustainable and innovative study programmes to the university as part of the accreditation process.

How you can benefit from our innovative, digital teaching offers

Whether communication, production, trade or the world of work: the digital transformation has arrived almost everywhere. Only the universities and colleges follow this development only hesitantly. There is still little awareness of digital change, the need for lifelong learning and digital literacy. The consequence of this unwillingness to change and the lack of technical resources is a teaching offer that is no longer up to date.

We do things differently.

As a university for digitisation, we see it as our task to reinvent ourselves again and again. We not only offer you an apprenticeship with a fixed degree – we also prepare you in the best possible way for the various challenges in technology, business and research. At the XU Exponential University near Berlin, you get access to global knowledge and the chance to further your education – interactively and practically.

Education and training

Develop ideas, plan strategies and build apps: Practical projects are firmly integrated in numerous modules.
