More than ever before, today’s domestic and international wine industry demands that its business leaders bring not only practical experience, but also academic and theoretical knowledge to the job. The Weincampus Neustadt was founded in 2009 to prepare the next generation of young professionals in the wine industry.
Since its founding, the Weincampus Neustadt has earned a respected reputation both in Germany and abroad. Our degree programs are distinguished by a combination of real-world experience, academic theory, and research, and our satisfied students enjoy excellent career opportunities after graduation.
This program is made possible by cooperation among three Universities of Applied Sciences in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Bingen, and Kaiserslautern, as well as the Dienstleistungszentrum Ländlicher Raum (DLR) Rheinpfalz (Rural Service Center of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate), along with over 300 partner companies throughout Germany. Our students enroll and earn their academic degree at the state-accredited University of Applied Sciences Ludwigshafen am Rhein, which also leads and organizes these cooperative educational programs.
