After examination by the German Council of Science, the Senate of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has decided to grant perpetual state recognition to the private university. With the recognition, the Hamburg Senate confirmed the university’s adequate scientific vision, its convincing international orientation of all courses, its excellent numeric ratio of professors to students as well as its impressive research achievements and high-ranking publications.
The KLU is headquartered at HafenCity, where the Master degree courses “Global Logistics”, “Management”, “Logistics and Leadership” and the Bachelor degree programme “Management” are being offered.
Tentatively Accepted in 2010
Following a detail examination of KLU achievements in teaching and research as well as the resources used, the Science Council positively accepted KLU’s accreditation request on 24 April 2015. In 2010, the KLU had been officially recognised as a private university by the Hamburg Senate for a five-year trial period. The most important hurdle before state recognition is institutionalised accreditation by the German Council of Science. The advisory body to the German Federal Government and the state (Länder) governments makes recommendations on the development of science, research, and the universities, as well as on the competitiveness of German science.
Katharina Fegebank, Hamburg Minister of Science: “I congratulate the KLU on receiving perpetual state recognition. The successful testing by the German Council of Science recognizes the school’s outstanding achievements in teaching and research. In particular, the university enriches Hamburg’s academic landscape by its numerous publications.
