Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein

Companies thrive and survive on the know-how of their employees. Conveying knowledge for the job is the responsibility and assignment of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein.

It was founded in 1967 and then re-established itself as the new Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein GmbH at the beginning of 2004 through a merger with the interplant educational centre founded in Elmshorn in 1974. As a private service company with the status of a public welfare institution, it provides advanced training courses for the Flensburg, Kiel and Lübeck Industrie- und Handelskammer (IHK - Chambers of Industry and Commerce).

Qualified and individual consultancy provided by competent staff as well as a selection of courses tailored to meet current occupational requirements are the bases for the successful training and advanced development programmes of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein. Experienced lecturers and instructors communicate their knowledge taken from the job for application to the job. Hence the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein contributes new perspectives to working life and to the economic success of the companies in the land between the North and Baltic Seas.

The Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein offers diverse courses of study at 17 locations covering rural areas state-wide. Modern equipment, lecturers and instructors focussed on practical experience, and high quality standards ensure the participants’ learning success.
