Our mission 

Quality instead of quantity!

We promote bold thinking! We are authentic, credible and competent in life as well as in teaching. We support innovative and provide orientation and motivation.

We share knowledge and know-how! We know how the creative economy works and bring real first-hand experience into our teaching. All our lecturers are curious and open to their own professional development and to new methods of knowledge transfer.

We support the community! We grow with the challenging tasks and give the necessary freedom to develop and evolve. In this way, we motivate our students and lecturers to share their know-how and feed our knowledge pipeline. Learning is not a dead end. We think holistically, because our students can develop professionally and personally and are thus optimally prepared for life.

Quality of Education

Are you planning for a future in the media and design industry? Perfect, because so do we! For over 25 years we have been sharing our know-how and experience in one of the most exciting industries of today – and the future – with our students. Right where business, media and design come together: in the creative centers of Munich, Berlin und Düsseldorf.

If your next career move is starting an innovative study program, moving into a new professional field or if you are looking for a sound training program, mdh is the perfect choice for you. In our programs and courses, we can provide you with the requisite know-how.

Our plus:

  • we have valuable contacts in the working world. We know important players who are literally waiting for recommendations from mdh;
  • for motivated students and trainees who are prepared to take on any future challenges, professionally and personally.  

Digitalization, interdisciplinary working methods and internationalization play a very important role in this process. Certain programs at our Berlin campus are taught in English, making these particularly interesting for international students.  Our Mediadesign University is in close contact with cooperation partners worldwide, such as the Hunan Normal University (HNU) in China, the Dyson School of Design and Engineering\ Imperial College London, the Parsons School of Design \ The New School in New York or University of Sao Paolo, in the area of intercultural instruction and research.

Whether you are enrolled in a university program or a vocational training, you will be in close contact with our lecturers. Courses and classes are science based and project-oriented.  Regular project work and a practical semester allow you to establish contact with relevant companies while you are still a student and help to improve teamwork between our participants. The master programs also focus on forming strong ties with the field of research. A total of 36 professors teaches at mdh, and our mdh Career Service helps you with the transition into the job market.

Thanks to its outstanding quality of education, the Mediadesign University has been named one of the top media universities in Germany by FOCUS magazine's 5/2023 edition of Germany Test (30,000 respondents, 256 providers).
