The success story of the IGC Bremen

From the foundation to present day

The International Graduate Center is characterized today by its high quality in teaching.This is secured on the one hand by the high practical relevance.On the other hand, the internationality and cultural diversity of students and teachers contribute a great deal to this.

A glance at the History of the IGC

The first MBA degree program at the Hocschule Bremen was created in 1995. Two years later, its first full-time version followed. After gaining profound knowledge of continuing education courses for nearly a decade, the International Graduate Center was founded in 2004. Right from the beginning, the IGC set out to adapt its teaching to the conditions and the needs of students and society. As a result of this, a home was founded for internationally oriented students with a desire to further enhance their education.

The goal has always been clear: an optimal and far-reaching service, which prepares students for the role of leadership.

Today: internationality, quality and practical relevance

The technical focus of the IGC is on business, management and leadership. The institution is fully accredited and lives from its diversity, which comes about through the diversity of students and teachers, also from the international orientation with IBSA Alliance, dual degrees and partner universities. In addition, the Graduate Center is distinguished by its friendly-welcoming atmosphere and practical relevance to companies. All these aspects make the IGC, and have made it the successful establishment and brand it is today with a wide variety of master programs, nearly 300 students from 40 countries and 22 employees.

Since its founding in 2004, the IGC is proud of:

  • More than 1400 graduates
  • Recommendation of the HRK (German rectors conference) in 2012
  • Sustainability and CSR on the Economy for the common good in 2014

Our goal is to sensitize our students, colleagues, suppliers and sponsors in the topics of sustainability, save on resources and social responsibility and to link these aspects in a common social action.
