Helmut Schmidt University

The Helmut Schmidt University performs its tasks by means of research, instruction and further training with the autonomy guaranteed by the responsible body and the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. With its research infrastructure it strengthens the city of Hamburg as a center of academic instruction. It adapts its program of study and further training to current scientific developments and to the demand for executives in the military, the economy and the society.

In both research and instruction, it stresses and develops the possibilities of the interdisciplinarity of natural and engineering sciences as well as economic and social sciences and humanities in order to sharpen the profiles of its graduates in a national and international competitive environment and to improve their future prospects. That applies not least to the promotion of young academics.

The Helmut Schmidt University is characterized by openness to the inside and outside and is guided by the aim of providing education through science for the 21st century.
