Courses taught in Eng­lish

Our exchange students are allowed to take courses of all degree programmes and semesters as long as they meet the academic requirements. This gives them a lot of freedom to choose the courses that suit their interests and complement the courses at their home university.


The HNU is divided into three departments (Health Management, Information Management and Business and Economics) and a Centre for Postgraduate Studies.


Research at the HNU focuses on four central research fields and selected cross-sectional topics. With a clear focus on the innovations initiated by digitization, the challenges of tomorrow in companies and society are addressed.

Study Pro­grammes

Business administration is an integral part of all degree programmes and can be combined with technology, communication, IT or health management, depending on the study programme.
