master’s programs in design & business administration taught in English
Berlin International is a state-recognised university of applied sciences with a global outlook located in the heart of Berlin. Our programs are taught entirely in English and have been accredited by the German Council of Science and Humanities. We seek to provide an educational environment in which students are encouraged to realize their individual potential while also learning to work in an interdisciplinary and collaborative context.
As well as serving their academic needs, our staff is also interested in preparing students for the globalized world in which we live by promoting cross-cultural understanding through international academic co-operation and joint projects. Our core values include integrity, respect, excellence, innovation, and social responsibility. We strive to ensure that students feel at home in our international academic community while also being challenged to test their limits and experience new forms of collaboration.
Our modern and spacious campus is equipped with computer labs, workshops, and a well-stocked library–everything our students need to excel in their studies. Students have access to a range of modern technology and tools to assist them in their projects. Alongside lecture halls and generously-sized seminar rooms, the campus also has a range of smaller rooms where students can focus and complete group work. In addition, we offer a cafeteria where students can take a break and enjoy their meals between classes.
Berlin International offers six undergraduate degree programs and two post- graduate degree programs within the faculties of business administration and architecture and design, all of which are taught in English. Upon completion, students will receive either a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, or Master of Business Administration.
Our international university team of educators draws on a diverse range of teaching strategies and contemporary research methods to create well-structured degree programs that encourage close collaboration with peers as well as focused individual project work. Each of our programs is accredited and meets German and European quality standards.

cosmopolitan and creative hub
Due to its cosmopolitan character, affordability, vibrant cultural scene and reputation as an attractive location for companies, entrepreneurs, investors and scientific institutions, Berlin is one of the most popular cities in Europe to work, study, and live. Together with its independent, inclusive culture and political climate, Berlin provides the perfect backdrop for student life. BI programs take advantage of these features by fostering tours, guest lectures, exhibitions, internships, and company visits with studios, start-ups, museums, galleries, festivals, and the city's many internationally renowned corporate headquarters.
Our modern and spacious campus is located in the heart of the university district in Charlottenburg. Easily reachable by public transport, it is also surrounded by canals and green spaces and is only a short walk from Berlin’s largest park, the Tiergarten. Nearby, students can also find Kantstraße (one of the best streets for Asian food in Berlin), a number of galleries and cultural venues, and the Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s oasis for high street fashion.
