Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) has today announced the opening of a new campus, expanding its presence to Hamburg.
The new premises, located in the second-largest city in Germany, will host BSBI’s Faculty of Creative Industries, in collaboration with its accredited awarding university partner, the
University for the Creative Arts (UCA).
The new faculty will expand BSBI’s portfolio with a selection of programmes in animation, graphic design and illustration. The programmes, awarded by UCA and taught by BSBI tutors, will allow students to receive UK recognised qualifications while studying in Germany.
Professor Dr Kyriakos Kouveliotis, Provost and Chief Academic Officer at BSBI, said: “This is a momentous occasion for BSBI, as we continue to expand our offering and grow our portfolio. With the addition of quality and career-oriented programmes in the creative arts, we aim to broaden our horizons and continue to become a leading institution in Germany.”
UCA is a top creative specialist university in the UK, holding ‘Gold’ status in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF). BSBI first partnered with the UK-based institution in October 2020, introducing undergraduate programmes in business and management, digital marketing and social media.
Dr Simon Macklin, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, University for the Creative Arts, said, “Our partnership with BSBI continues to flourish and we look forward to making more courses available to students soon. The faculty’s new home, in Hamburg – a city known for its cultural and creative scene – is perfectly located for students to experience and embed themselves in the creative industries.“
This new development in the collaboration offers students the opportunity to access prestigious flagship courses designed for aspiring professionals in the creative industries.
Liz Fernando, Head of Academic Operations Arts at BSBI, commented, “Hamburg is a well-renowned hub of creative arts in Germany and a major European science, research and education hub with several universities and institutions.
“Our new campus is therefore well positioned to deliver these innovative programmes to budding creative minds and to support the growing industry with talented graduates. Thanks to UCA’s expertise, we are able to deliver a quality educational experience to domestic and international students in Germany.”
BSBI Hamburg campus is located in the famous Otto von Bahrenpark area, a landmark in
the city. The area is now a modern business park, preserving historical buildings while serving as a perfect backdrop for a modern, exciting and inspiring creative campus.
To mark the opening of its Hamburg campus, BSBI is launching the ‘BSBI Portfolio Scholarship Competition’. Students applying for the October 2021 intake will have the opportunity to secure full scholarship and partial scholarships for up to 50% of the tuition fees by submitting their artistic portfolio, to be reviewed by a panel of experts, by Friday 13 August.
