AWW – Academy for Further Education

 Lehrgang Weiterbildung AWW


    Continuing education has become an important part of what RWU has to offer. In addition to part-time master's courses designed to fit around the schedules of working professionals, various other seminars and classes are also offered at the Academy of Further Education. Our aim is to support lifelong learning and to help you advance your professional career.

    Our mission

    The conception, organization, and implementation of practice-oriented continuing education courses that fit the schedules of busy professionals

    Good grades and a diploma is the best way to start a successful career. But what happens next?

    We offer a wide range of continuing education opportunities for students whether they have a little or a lot of professional experience. These courses help to develop personal competencies, are taught by lecturers with experience in both academia and industry, and are oriented around the job requirements and skill sets demanded by real employers.

    We want to prepare you for new tasks and management positions in a global economy and a dynamic world. This is also our contribution towards another of our goals- strengthening the competitiveness of companies in our region and helping them to develop. We also leverage our services to support and promote (nascent) start-ups from within the university.

    Master's Courses

    The part-time master’s courses at RWU accelerate your career and prepare you for future management roles. The programs are intended for those with a bachelor’s degree and some level of professional experience who are interested in obtaining a master's degree while working.


    We offer various seminars which help to foster lifelong learning as well as advance your professional career.
    Please contact us if you have any questions. We would be happy to tell you more about the classes currently on offer:
