Five Years IUBH Distance Learning: flexible and digital degree programmes

IUBH Distance Learbning celebrates its 5th birthday! Started with 42 students in November 2011, there are now over 6,600 distance learning students at the university, taking advantage of innovative digital learning opportunities. And the programme will continue to expand in the future: In January the first degree programme with a technical focus will be offered: Industrial Engineering Industry 4.0.

The success is based on a powerful vision: “Maximum flexibility has always been the central focus of IUBH distance learning,” says Prof Dr Holger Sommerfeldt, academic director of distance learning at IUBH. “With the expansion of digitalisation we are able to increasingly tailor our programmes to the individual requirements of our students. We therefore have a strong commitment to digital innovation.”
