The new Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) decisively strengthens the German capital's position as a location for tertiary level education and research.

The BSEL is ranked among the largest Universities of Applied Sciences in Berlin. It can leverage over 30 years of expertise and experience from both former Universities, each widely recognised as expert in their own fields. In the course of the merger, the specialised disciplines within the individual Universities have been strengthened and expanded. While the programmes at the Berlin School of Economics (BSE) and University of Applied Sciences for Administration and Law (FHVR) were already prominent in their field in Berlin, throughout Germany and, in many cases, internationally, the Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) aims to further evolve and promote these competences.

The University has an academic staff of approximately 200 professors and 830 lecturers, plus nearly 280 research and administrative personnel, committed to realising these goals.
