The world of branding offers an exciting career field. It is dynamic, challenging and full of opportunities. At the Brand University of Applied Sciences you will develop the necessary skills and establish contacts – studying in Hamburg fulfills all the requirements for a successful start to your career.

Gateway to the (branding) world

With the second largest port in Europe and more than 120,000 companies from all over the world, the city is a major commercial center. Most important agencies and brand companies have at least one branch office here.

Among the largest companies in Hamburg are, for example, Airbus, the Otto Group, the Edeka network and Beiersdorf. With a wide variety of brands, companies in Hamburg cover a large part of the product and service industry.

This economic diversity also attracts many agencies. The largest owner-operated advertising agencies based in Hamburg include Jung von Matt, Fischer-Appelt, Kolle Rebbe and Thjnk, for example. In addition to the big names, a large number of smaller communications, design and advertising agencies have also established themselves in Hamburg.

More and more start-ups are also discovering the Hanseatic city for themselves. Hamburg offers a good network with many events, regional funding and incubator programs. The tech scene in particular has settled here in recent years. Last but not least, regional start-up programs are convincing for students who want to stand on their own two feet as entrepreneurs.
