Brain Capital Financing

Brain Capital financing is an innovative way for students to finance their studies at Kühne Logistics University. In this plan, the KLU tuition fee fund carries the tuition fees for the program up to 100%. Students can pursue their degree without having to pay tuition fees exceeding their financial resources. In return, students commit themselves to make income-dependent payments after graduation.

Please indicate your interest in this financing plan during the admission process. 


  • People from all financial backgrounds have an opportunity to study at KLU.
  • Payments are income-based: if you have little or no income after graduation, the payment obligation is deferred until you can make payments.
  • Under current German law, the payments may be partially or fully tax deductible.
