Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL)


Profile of the university

The Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) was founded through the merger of the Berlin School of Economics (BSE) and the FHVR Berlin (university of applied sciences for administration and law). The BSEL is ranked among the largest universities of applied sciences in Berlin. Combining applied business expertise, administrative competences and security management knowledge in the university and putting the experience from a set of company linked study programmes, creates a discourse that far transcends to the boarders of the individual subject. The BSEL has a clear focus on strongly promoting a range of applied research. With its five faculties and six institutes it has initiated applied research projects in business, economics and social sciences as well as administration, engineering and law. In creating the Institute for Distance Learning (FSI - Fernstudieninstitut) the Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) has established one dedicated institute for its distance learning programmes. Ten years ago, the Institute for Distance Learning (FSI), started a Master in European Administrative Management. In 2008 it launched the Master in Public Administration and, beginning with the winter semester 2010/11, these two programmes were joined by the Master of Security Management. Up to date more than 500 students have successfully graduated from the Institute for Distance Learning and currently 330 students are enrolled in its study programmes. They are taught by 30 professors of BSEL, as well as by 50 lecturers from companies and administrative bodies.

The Berlin School of Economics and Law is characterised and shaped by its international approach. By broadly realizing the guidelines of the Bologna Process, it has throughout transformed the study programmes into Bachelor or Master degrees. In addition the majority of programmes have been quality controlled and accredited by a German agency. One of the guiding principles is to facilitate a strong link between academic theory and real – life practice.
