About us
Companies thrive and survive on the know-how of their employees. Conveying knowledge for the job is the responsibility and assignment of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein.

It was founded in 1967 and then re-established itself as the new Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein GmbH at the beginning of 2004 through a merger with the interplant educational centre founded in Elmshorn in 1974. As a private service company with the status of a public welfare institution, it provides advanced training courses for the Flensburg, Kiel and Lübeck Industrie- und Handelskammer (IHK - Chambers of Industry and Commerce).

Qualified and individual consultancy provided by competent staff as well as a selection of courses tailored to meet current occupational requirements are the bases for the successful training and advanced development programmes of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein. Experienced lecturers and instructors communicate their knowledge taken from the job for application to the job. Hence the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein contributes new perspectives to working life and to the economic success of the companies in the land between the North and Baltic Seas.

The Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein offers diverse courses of study at 17 locations covering rural areas state-wide. Modern equipment, lecturers and instructors focussed on practical experience, and high quality standards ensure the participants’ learning success. Accommodation is available nearby at the colleges’ own guest houses e.g. in Kiel, Elmshorn, Lübeck or Husum.
By offering customised, flexible seminar concepts for the employed and those searching for jobs as well as in-company training, the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein reacts to meet each need. In the technical commercial work shops in Elmshorn, Lübeck or Itzehoe theoretical knowledge is put into practice. Special vocations are focussed on in selected locations: in Husum hotel and restaurant management as well as renewable energies, Itzehoe stands for state-of-the-art micro technology and in Lübeck intensive studies in tourism are provided. The Wirtschaftsakademie is also committed to preparing young people throughout Schleswig-Holstein for their future careers. The Berufsakademie (College of Co-operative Education) and the Fachschule (Technical Colleges) in Kiel, Lübeck and Flensburg complete the program.

Why we participate in Best Agers
In recent years, the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein has gained considerable experience in successfully placing older workers in the labor market. Taking on the issue of demographic change, the Best Agers Project profits from its European integration sharing experiences with the different participating partners from the Baltic Sea countries. By developing innovative approaches in a combined effort can we confront the risks of demographic change.
