COVID-19 Important Information for Applicants

KLU has guaranteed that all successful applicants will be able to begin their studies at KLU as scheduled this coming fall semester. Should individual students not be able to be in Hamburg physically due to coronavirus restrictions, the entire course catalogue will initially be made available online for all participants worldwide. Students can join classes in person as soon as feasible.

No, the semester will not be postponed. Due to the successful implementation of online teaching all semester dates will remain the same. Students who will not be able to come to campus will be able to start their studies online. This includes all students who have been and will be admitted for the upcoming academic year.
 

At this time, the visa/residence permit application procedure has not been changed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. If you need a visa and/or residence permit to study in Germany, you will receive a visa support letter from KLU with your admission kit. Please start the visa process right after having received this letter. Should the travel restrictions in the current form remain and it will not be possible for you to apply for a student visa, you will be able to start your studies at KLU while still being in your home country. Please continuously observe the situation in your home country and start the visa process as soon as it will be possible again.

We strongly advise all international applicants to apply as early as possible and submit your application by July 15th. Applicants from within the EU can submit their application until August15th. We are watching closely how the situation develops and will update this page regarding any further changes accordingly.

Please complete your application as good as you can and attach all documents which you have received so far. We will check whether we can evaluate your application with the documents you are able to provide at this point in time. Our Office of Admissions will get in contact with you should we not be able to proceed with your application due to missing documents.

Being an accredited and state-recognized university, KLU has to follow regulations of the German Council of Higher Education. The situation and its consequences are currently being discussed by the Council and KLU needs to wait for their response. As soon as we receive an update from the Council, we will post it here.

In the meantime, we encourage you to proceed with your application and to stay positive! We ensure you that we are committed to supporting you to the best of our abilities.

Our tuition costs reflect the quality of instruction and education provided by our university. The costs remain the same because our online courses are taught by the same instructors as our on-campus courses and our credit-bearing courses maintain the same structure as before.

As a fulltime student within Germany, you are required to have German health insurance. Health insurance is mandatory for all students in Germany and one of the most important requirements for enrollment.

KLU supports its students in finding sufficient health insurance before the start of your studies. If you have German health insurance, then you are covered for any health related issues. Whether it is related to the virus, or regular doctor appointments, visiting the doctor is much more accessible in Germany then other countries. Beside the coverage in case of illnesses the public insurance companies also cover preventive medical check-ups as well as the treatments of pre-existing illnesses.

As all students are required to have German health insurance. A medical treatment in relation to the coronavirus is covered by your German insurance, in case it should happen.


The quality of the treatment you get as member of the German health insurance is generally very good. Most of the statutory health insurance benefits are standard services and compulsory for all of the insurance providers. So in general most medical and dental expenses as well as hospital stays are covered. You can choose any doctor or dentist who is recognized by the insurance company.

Of course, there are also English speaking doctors in Hamburg. KLU has always provided information to our student community on visiting doctors and how to find English speaking doctors in Hamburg.

We continue to do this, and provide additional support to any students with questions. Moreover, we offer a monthly health insurance support hour from a public, German health insurance company on KLU’s campus and an English speaking counseling service for KLU students.

Please always check with the German embassy of your home country which blocked bank account is accepted. For more information, please see the website of the German Federal Foreign Office.

Once you have set up the account, you will have to deposit the amount required. For one academic year you will have to deposit 10,236 euros. Please be aware that the process for opening the account can take several weeks.

COVID-19 update
We are aware that IB exams have been cancelled this year. Being an accredited and state-recognized university, KLU has to follow regulations of the German Council of Higher Education. The situation and its consequences are currently being discussed by the Council and KLU needs to wait for their response. As soon as we receive an update from the Council, we will post it here. In the meantime, we encourage you to proceed with your application and are committed to supporting you to the best of our abilities as an institution, while still following the guidelines set by the Council.

 

For our Master’s degree programs we require a degree in business or economics, but will consider other fields such as industrial or mechanical engineering, business informatics, and mathematics if your Bachelor's degree contains a sufficient number of courses in business (at least four).

The following courses could be recognized as necessary business courses: 

  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Business Strategy
  • Marketing (Management)
  • Management (International, Operations, Strategic)
  • Human Resource Management
  • Supply Chain Management and similar

Please note, the following courses are NOT considered as business courses, but as quantitative courses:

  • Mathematics
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Statistics
  • Operations Research

There are different ways to prove additional courses, e.g. you can join a summer school at a recognized university or KLU's Summer School (6 ECTS). You can also do so called MOOCs (massive open online courses) on online learning platforms (e.g. edX, coursera etc). Please find some examples of courses which can be recognized as the necessary business courses here.

 

Please note that in either case these courses

  • have to be conducted by a recognized university;
  • a course must consist of a minimum of 1 US credit hour (1 credit = 2 ECTS; 1 ECTS = 25-30 hours of work);
  • you have to prove your successful participation by a certificate.

For our Master’s degree programs, a high performance in so called quantitative courses is considered positively. For example, the following courses could be recognized as quantitative courses:

  • Mathematics
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Statistics
  • Quantitative methods / quantitative techniques

No. For the MSc programs (not MBA) professional / work experience is not an admission requirement, but is definitely beneficial for the classroom and for the evaluation of your application. We require a degree in Business Administration or Economics for our MSc programs, but we will consider other degrees if you have completed a sufficient number of courses in business (at least four). Please note that professional / work experience cannot substitute missing academic business courses.

In order to qualify for the fast track Master program, your previous Bachelor’s degree must comprise of at least 210 ECTS points (German standard). In addition, you must have either studied outside of Germany for at least one semester in your Bachelor’s degree or you must have done an internship abroad, which was officially part of your Bachelor's degree program. Foreign university degrees will be evaluated according to the guidelines of the German Council of Higher Education.

We encourage all students to participate in the study abroad program. Students are able to stay in Hamburg for their third semester if they have completed their entire bachelors degree outside of Germany, and have graduated within the last 5 years.

No, once the study program has started, it is not possible to change tracks anymore. Therefore, please check carefully with the Recruitment and Admissions Office which of the tracks (standard vs. fast) you qualify for and is most suitable for you.*

*Only applicable for the MSc in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management and the MSc in Management.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

You can apply for scholarships, once you have applied to KLU. Your complete application must be submitted and the application fee paid. Incomplete applicants, or international applicants (non-EU) still owing the application fee will not be considered.

There are several possibilities to finance your studies, e.g. through Brain Capital, KLU merit-based scholarships, external scholarships or a student loan. 

KLU offers a limited number of merit-based scholarships. These scholarships cover 50% to 100% of tuition. Applicants are chosen based on outstanding academic performance (GPA less than or equal to 2.0), social commitment, and extracurricular activities.

Plus, KLU offers an innovative financing plan called Brain Capital. In this plan, the KLU tuition fund may carry up 50% to 100% of the cost of tuition for the program (but not the cost of living). Applicants from non-OECD countries do not receive a full funding of the tuition but only up to 50%.

Students can pursue their degree without having to pay full tuition that exceeds their financial resources. In return, they will commit themselves to making income-dependent payments after graduation. For more information please visit our financial options page.

In Germany, tuition can be claimed on tax returns and the tax savings can be used to partially finance students’ degrees.

All master’s degree students can claim all the costs of their degree program as anticipated income-related expenses before graduating and after completing their vocational training, and carry them forward over their time enrolled as cumulative losses – assuming they had no or very little income in that time. Loss carry-forwards make this possible: the losses that students incur because they are studying are offset from their incomes after graduation in subsequent years. This reduces the income for which taxes are due. The costs associated with the semester abroad and tuition are deductible.

It is only possible to take advantage of loss carry-forward if the degree program is a second degree (master’s degree after the bachelor’s or a bachelor’s degree after an apprenticeship). The costs of first degrees can be deducted as a special expense up to a limit of €6,000. Study-related expenses only have an effect in the same year and only result in tax benefits for people whose incomes are high enough that they actually pay income tax in Germany. The Federal Constitutional Court is reviewing the regulation regarding the costs of the first degree. For this reason, students should always claim their study-related expenses as income-related expenses on their income tax returns.

If students participate in the brain capital plan and defer payment of tuition fees, the fees can be deducted as soon as payment is initiated (outflow principle).

*non-committal statement as KLU is not allowed to act as a tax advisor.

Yes, there are several external scholarships which you can apply for. DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) offers an extensive scholarship database. Moreover, there are several merit-based educational scholarships.

General Information

You can find a first overview of the next semester dates here. Please just use it as a general guideline. All KLU fall semesters, taking place at the KLU Hamburg campus OR online (depending on the development of the corona pandemic), start September 1st.

Once you begin your studies, you will receive your academic calendar for the year. If you have further questions please get in touch with us via study@the-klu.org.

Normally, it is not possible. However, you can make a request in severe cases like pregnancy, family issues and other emergency situations.

KLU provides an ideal environment for learning: small classes, an excellent student-professor ratio, a state-of-the-art campus and easy access to relevant information in our library. The university administration also offers extensive support services: a unique career and job orientation program, a well-structured degree program and support in planning and organizing the semester abroad. Our student services team helps our students on day-to-day issues. And at KLU, world-class professors who are thought leaders in their fields teach the students.

A degree from KLU starts paying the day your career begins. KLU graduates earn above-average entry-level pay. The average entry-level annual salary for KLU graduates of the MSc programs living in Germany is 15% higher than the average salary of graduates from MSc in Management programs in Germany (Source: KLU Alumni Survey 2016 / stepstone.de).

Common features

Both KLU students and state university students graduate with outstanding analytical and methodological skills and excellent knowledge of general business administration. All the degree programs at KLU must pass the same accreditation process as the state universities. Agencies commissioned by the German Council of Science and Humanities verify the quality of the degree programs and the study environment.

Differences

Students at state universities often complain about crowded lecture halls, but KLU offers small classes and intensive, personal teaching and support. Students at huge universities often feel anonymous, but KLU encourages an intimate atmosphere of trust characterized by mutual respect.

Students often describe their studies at state universities as too theoretical without any relationship to actual practice. KLU establishes a relationship to practice with project work, planning games, simulations, excursions, and lectures by people who work at renowned companies.

Thanks to tuition and funding from the Kühne Foundation, KLU has a state-of-the-art campus and rooms, up-to-date teaching materials, and a high level of service. State universities often have to make do with out-of-date technical equipment and shabby buildings and rooms.

The curricula at KLU are well organized and planned in detail. Our students graduate after the normal number of semesters, which is often not possible at state universities in Germany (Source: destatis: Hochschulen auf einen Blick Ausgabe 2016 (Universities at a Glance 2016 edition): median total duration of degree program for bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration: bachelor’s: 6.8 semesters; master’s: 11.3 semesters). Because they graduate on time, our students launch their careers earlier and earn money sooner.
