Collaborative Partnerships with Companies


Since the University was founded, partnerships with companies have been the driving force behind, and the cornerstone of, PFH development. The focus here is on expansion of the network and on both parties' maximisation of the potential of these collaborative partnerships.

Collaborative partnerships with PFH are multi-faceted, inspiring and rewarding for companies, with the companies themselves being able to determine the degree of their financial and time commitment. Bespoke, jointly developed solutions are also possible. There are many different ways of becoming involved in the PFH's network of companies: from recruitment of young talent to project work through to the endowment of chairs and membership of the PFH Board of Trustees.

The following products and services are available to you as a corporate partner of PFH.

Recruitment of Young Talent in the Management On-Campus Study Programme

Management study programmes that are entrepreneurial in nature, with a practical focus and content geared to business needs, enable precisely tailored training of future executives. The PraxisStudieren (StudyingPractice) programme, in which companies can fund the training of students, allows a close relationship between student and company to be formed at an early stage.

Personnel Development through Distance-Learning Courses

PFH offers study programmes in Business Administration and, as of April 2014, expects to offer such programmes in Psychology/Business Psychology, whose teaching methods ensure successful learning alongside work. The content of the programmes is geared to business needs and therefore lends itself to carefully targeted personnel development.

Tailored Solutions

A special feature of PFH is the joint development and implementation of innovative courses geared to business and market requirements, e.g. Verbundwerkstoffe/Composites or Orthobionics. Companies are involved in an advisory capacity in course planning. This form of collaboration is supported, at an academic level, by endowed chairs or the establishment of institutes.

Continuing Education

Future-oriented content for non-academics at PFH Professional School or special knowledge for academics and specialists at the mtec-academy – PFH offers both for tailored continuing education in distance-learning courses and seminars. Bespoke personnel development programmes at university level are also possible.

Cooperative Marketing and Sales

Joint advertising campaigns and sales actions position corporate partners as sponsors of science and education. This gives rise to synergy effects in different target groups' perception and a positive image transfer.

Business Services

PFH gives companies straightforward access to qualified interns and up-and-coming managerial talent for their specialist departments. Scholarship programmes help to win the loyalty of young talent at an early stage. Practice-oriented lectures can be used as a company presentation platform, while events can serve know-how transfer and networking purposes.
