Learning is shaped by the interest in knowledge of managerial, entrepreneurial and organisational activity in economic, ecological, social and cultural contexts. The emphasis of the education is on practical application. More than half of Karlshochschule's students are international. As a result, the students' origins are distributed very differently across approximately 60 countries worldwide. All Karls students spend the fourth or fifth semester abroad at one of more than 120 partner universities around the world (outgoing students) to gain additional experience and broaden their horizons.
