Iserlohn-The European University of Applied Sciences (EU) is now official university partner of Borussia Dortmund. The partnership gives EU students exclusive insight into running one of Europe’s biggest football clubs.

Professor Dr Maurits van Rooijen, Rector of the European University of Applied Sciences, describes the new cooperation as follows:I am very happy that Borussia Dortmund, one of the friendliest and most renowned football clubs, is now the official university partner of the European University of Applied Sciences. The cooperation allows our students to gain early insight into the most diverse areas of a globally active football club. I am sure that our current and future students from all our campuses will benefit from this partnership and learn a lot. Couldn’t make the connection between theory and practice better.”

Students go behind the scenes of the professional club

With the cooperation sealed in July 2022, EU students can gain insight into the work of BVB, get to know well-known BVB personalities and benefit from the experiences of BVB employees. To this end, lectures invited by BVB employees will take place on the EU campus over the next two years, giving students an insight into the various BVB departments. In the future, BVB legends, such as longtime BVB goalkeeper and recently 2014 German world champion Roman Weidenfeller, will also be invited to EU events and show how sport and business can be combined. The culmination of the cooperation is a BVB scholarship.

Working with the talents of tomorrow

The BVB sees university cooperation with the EU as future-oriented: “In all professional fields, it is always about talents and retaining them. We want to promote the talents of sports management today and collaborate with the managers of tomorrow to jointly define the course of the future. This makes us competitive on the international stage, not only on the pitch but also off it,” said Carsten Cramer, Managing Director of Borussia Dortmund, explaining the club’s decision to enter into a university partnership.

Thanks to this cooperation, students from the EU not only have the opportunity to attend BVB’s Bundesliga matches, but a particularly current and practical asset for students is above all the possibility of participating in exclusive content productions with the BVB eFootball team.
