The Myth of Free Education

Why investment in private higher education is worth it – using the example of the Jacobs University Bremen.

Whilst academic education at private universities is recognised and has a high reputation in countries such as the United States, Great Britain or Japan the private operators in Germany permanently have to fight to justify their existence and against prejudices. The Jacobs University in Bremen, North Germany, which was founded in 1997 and is the only private full university in the whole of Germany aspiring to excellence in teaching and research, also sees itself confronted by this.
