RWTH Aachen University was founded in 1870 as the first Prussian Institute of Technology and was soon recognised as Royal Technical University. This long tradition serves not only as a strong scientific and academic foundation but also as a commitment for the future: RWTH Aachen is a place where the future of our industrialized world is thought out.
Today, RWTH Aachen University is the largest technical university in Germany and one of eleven universities of excellence with more than 500 full professors teaching more than 45,000 students in 157 programs of study.
In today’s world, globally relevant research problems can generally only be solved through interdisciplinary collaboration. In acknowledgement of this development, the School of Business and Economics has tailored its profile to incorporate interdisciplinary themes located at the interface between business and economics on the one hand and engineering and natural sciences on the other. As a further consequence, the School of Business and Economics has recently established four Research Areas. Each of these reflects the tightly-meshed research activities within the School and each is also a point of contact for collaboration with other schools, faculties, and centers at RWTH Aachen.
The skills, networks, and experiences that our students acquire will prove invaluable in their future development. As people who speak and understand the languages of technology and business, participants at RWTH Business School have many opportunities after graduation – whether as executives in established companies or as entrepreneurs. We support you on your path from the beginning with our very own career service. This includes our RWTH Business School job portal, CV checks, application training, networking events, 1:1 consultations and much more.
Through close cooperation between universities, research institutions, companies and the city administration, Aachen has developed into one of the most important high-tech locations in Europe. The scientific competence available in Aachen has attracted renowned international companies and research institutions such as Ericsson, Ford, Philips, Takeda Pharma and Microsoft. However, Aachen is also a dynamic hub for start-ups, spin-offs and entrepreneurs dealing with new technologies. Recent examples are the StreetScooter, an electric delivery vehicle jointly developed with Deutsche Post DHL, and the e.Go Life, an affordable electric car.
The school of business and economics at RWTH Aachen University is one of the few faculties in Germany to bear the international seal of approval of the renowned accreditation agency Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
With the re-accreditation the AACSB praised the high quality standard in teaching and research, the innovative ability of the faculty as well as the commitment of the teachers. This applies in particular to the extensive e-learning offerings. Worldwide, only 5% of the economic science faculties are AACSB accredited. In Germany, only nine other faculties or business schools meet the high international standards of the AACSB.
