At BiTS, we want to create an environment in which you can develop a strong character. Five basic factors form the backbone of BiTS: You study in an informal atmosphere to enable you to grow as a person. Trust is placed in you. You experience success. You learn based on a hands-on approach. And think along international lines. To put this policy into practice, BiTS creates an atmosphere of well-being and fosters a climate in which you can perform your best.

You grow as a person

We want to give you the scope to develop to your full potential. We believe that your technical education goes hand in hand with your personal development. This is because, to be successful these days, you need more than pure knowledge. All programs of study include tutorials designed to develop your social skills. Be it confidence, teamwork or presentation training, we fully prepare you for a successful professional career.

Trust is placed in you

How? You learn in an environment based on openness and trust. Your professors and lecturers believe in your abilities. You are personally taken care of and learn in small groups. A lack of bureaucracy makes it easier for students and lecturers to interact. We trust you – and you can trust us.

You experience success

Many BiTS lecturers work in private enterprises. This gives you the opportunity to observe how established firms operate and to experience their success first-hand. At the same time, you gain practical experience of the world of work even while you study, and get a taste of your first successes.

You learn based on a practical approach

To educate you in in line with the requirements of business, all programs of study at BiTS take a practical, hands-on approach. Various compulsory internships teach you more than pure theory. The numerous student initiatives give you an added opportunity to develop in your field of interest alongside your studies. The initiatives enable you to gain experience while you study: experience that is relevant for your future career.

You think along international lines

National boundaries have long blurred in the world of business. Consequently, it is BiTS’s policy look beyond lines on a map. Thus, a semester of study abroad is a fixture of the bachelor’s degree program, and the International Summer School of the master’s degree program. This stay abroad is organized in close collaboration with our partner universities in the global Laureate Network. In addition, meeting students from all over the world is part of everyday life at BiTS.

Altogether these factors offer our students the best possible conditions for starting their careers.
