HSBA as your Host

Marius Heidemann


HSBA enjoys hosting students or groups from other universities. Within the framework of summer schools or group visits, HSBA provides tailor-made academic programmes and enables guests from all over the world to get in touch with the HSBA network and gain insight into the local culture and economy.

Hereby HSBA offers open enrollment summer schools according to its areas of competencies. In addition to the open summer schools, HSBA also offers tailor-made programmes for visiting groups from Bachelor students to Executive Managers.

HSBA's combination of state-of-the-art management know-how, academic excellence and close proximity to practice is a common feature of all offers.

Summer Schools

Currently HSBA offers summers schools in the following areas of expertise:

These summer schools are aimed at students from all over the world. The individual admission requirements of the respective programmes apply. The one-to-two-week programmes consist of a varied thematic academic programme, whereby the content is generally applied to real practice questions or projects.

Corporate visits and the involvement of guest representatives from companies in the Hamburg metropolitan area also ensure the high application reference. All participants can gain a university certificate with creditpoints.

In addition to the academic programme, HSBA also offers a varied social programme. This consists of touristic highlights such as a trip through the world-famous Hamburg harbor or of other formats, which guarantee networking possibilities with our students and partner companies. Such events range from joint barbecues on the university campus or the Elbstrand, expert lounges or joint sporting activities.

HSBA also supports the search for an adequate accommodation.

"The support from the university has been incredible...."

"I truly feel as though I have made a network with a group of people that will not only last a lifetime but also will have a great influence in the global conversation of Corporate Social Responsibility. Thank you!"
