Vallendar is situated in the heart of the famous Upper Middle Rhine Valley, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are excellent opportunities for students to explore the beautiful surroundings – take a boat trip through the ancient Rhine gorge past castle-topped cliffs or to cycle through the Moselle Valley, home to some of Germany’s best vineyards.
Though Vallendar is a small city, it hosts two universities, the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and the Philosophisch-Theologische Hochschule Vallendar (PTHV). But WHU does not only cooperate with PTHV, moreover it maintains close relationships with the two universities located in Koblenz, one of Germany’s oldest and most beautiful cities, just 8 kilometers away from Vallendar. WHU can be reached from Frankfurt International, Cologne/Bonn and Frankfurt/Hahn Airport in about 1 hour.
WHU is determined that qualified students should not be held back by their financial situation. Therefore, there are a number of financing options available to our Master of Science students, which allow all successful candidates to study at WHU. For example: WHU Excellence Scholarship, WHU Merit Scholarship, WHU International Business Leaders Scholarship, WHU Female Founders Scholarship, WHU Future Founders Scholarship, WHU Family Business Scholarship, Reduced tuition fees, Deutschlandstipendium.

WHU was the first German university to be awarded the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) Certificate. This accreditation, granted as a sign of approval for international business schools, has been extended for another five years in March 2009. All WHU degree programs are government approved.
As an important step in the approval process, the Bachelor, Master, MBA and Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA programs passed the accreditation process of FIBAA in September 2005; the accreditation has been granted the same month. FIBAA accreditation also includes recognition by the “Stiftung zur Akkreditierung von Studiengängen in Deutschland” (German accreditation body). All programs have been reaccredited in spring 2010.
