Campus Dortmund

Study in the Heart of the Ruhrgebiet

The campus of the private university in Dortmund was founded in 1990 and, with around 930 students, is the largest of the ISM’s locations. It is located in the middle of the technology park only 15 minutes from the city center. In recent years, Dortmund has developed from the former coal and steel city to a modern technology location. As the largest city in Westphalia and the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, Dortmund is one of the most dynamic new economic cities in Germany.
