Theory to Practice: Transforming Learning into Action

Steinbeis University’s Professional Practice program uniquely integrates professional work with academic learning. Based on Ferdinand von Steinbeis’s dual education concept, this approach focuses on applying theoretical knowledge in real-life professional settings. Students tackle actual challenges encountered in their workplaces, transforming academic theories into effective, real-world solutions. This practical learning approach deepens understanding and substantially benefits both students and their companies.

Throughout the program, students actively apply their new academic insights in their workplaces, playing a pivotal role in shaping their educational experience. Steinbeis University collaborates with industry leaders, corporations, and organisations to ensure a rich, hands-on learning environment.
