About the University

PFH – University for Careers
PFH Private University of Applied Sciences was recognised by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture in 1995, which means that it is Lower Saxony's oldest private, state-recognised university. The incentive for its foundation was the idea of providing fresh impetus in the fields of science and teaching with a purely privately funded university that offers a study programme aligned to the real needs of the economy. In 2007, PFH received institutional accreditation from the Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA). At the end of 2018, PFH received institutional re-accreditation from the German Council of Science and Humanities.

The University has since been actively contributing to securing Germany's position as a science and business location through its intensive training of qualified new managerial blood. The PFH meets these high aspirations through a consistent orientation towards practical experience, through its marked internationality and by developing innovative teaching programmes.

In august 2018, 3,400 students were enrolled in one of the 27 study programmes in Management, Engineering Sciences, Psychology and Business Psychology, Business Law, Technology or in Healthcare Technology. They study either at one of the three campus locations in Göttingen, Stade or Berlin or at one of the distance-learning centres located across Germany and Austria.

PFH - The University for Entrepreneurs
As a university run on entrepreneurial lines, the training of entrepreneurial new blood is an essential cornerstone of the PFH's orientation. The activities pertaining to this topic area are concentrated in the ZE Zentrum fĂŒr Entrepreneurship (Centre for Entrepreneurship). Imparting entrepreneurship content or an ability to act entrepreneurially as a key qualification cuts across all the PFH's departments.

Through its Board of Trustees and its more than 500 partner companies, the University has excellent links to business throughout Germany and, particularly in the regions of Göttingen und Stade, is embedded in a largely SME-oriented company environment. Entrepreneurial thinking is also reflected in the student body, in the form, for example, of a large percentage of students who specify setting up on their own as a career goal or already come from an entrepreneurial family background.
