Mission: Our university is consciously promoting the internationalisation of teaching by offering joint study and doctoral programmes with foreign partner institutions, systematically expanding the global mobility of both students and teachers, and improving the integration infrastructure for people from other cultural regions. It equips its student members with skills needed for the globalised labour market in business, society and science. The internationalisation of research focuses on the creation of international research alliances, particularly in the different research profile areas.

Vision: In line with the University’s motto, “A tradition of crossing boundaries”, we are committed to the overarching vision of reflecting the diversity of the world as a world of diversity based on science.
