Education, research and transfer – that is the triangle of skills and knowledge which enables us to create innovation in the economy and in society. To do this, HNU creates networks with stakeholders in the region and further afield; contacts and joint projects with academics, organizations and businesses throughout the world open up new horizons and offer valuable opportunities for further development. We offer all our students and staff international exchange opportunities, and we are delighted with the dynamic effect that has on our university. My thanks go to all the members of our university family who have worked in so many different ways to shape and enrich the internationalization of HNU. And I would like to thank our partners, both here in Germany and in other countries, for the trust they have placed in us; I look forward to continued fruitful and close collaboration with them. I hope that you, the reader, enjoy this report, and we would be happy to hear from you to exchange ideas and thoughts about it.

For the HNU, internationalisation is an essential part of our understanding of ourselves as an active participant in the development of the region. Our role in education is to educate internationally experienced, solution-oriented and responsible specialists and managers; through our unusually strong international network with universities and other organisations in more than 40 countries we are able to create and carry through international projects in the field of cooperative research, capacity building and transfer. This high level of international experience and interdependence promotes practical relevance and enables us to be as up-to-date as possible in the learning programmes and content for all those studying with us at the HNU. This report describes the successes and objectives we have achieved in the shaping of our university of applied sciences through internationalisation, seeing it as both orientation and as a field of activity in which we can continue to grow as a business school with an international reputation.
