Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences is a fully-accredited, remote-first institution that allows learners to build the 21st-century skills needed in sustainability, entrepreneurship, and technology through our revolutionary approach to education. We are building a community of empowered and connected individuals who will create a brighter, more sustainable future. Their success is our mission, and their impact is our measure.
We combine state-of-the-art learning science and technology to create flexible, accessible, and effective learning experiences that equip learners with our key ingredients for impact — purpose, capability, and community. Through continuous learning, application, and collaborative creation, we cultivate a mindset of growth and self-efficacy to expand our learners’ circle of influence and turn them into confident agents of change. We aim to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable society by revolutionizing education to learn differently and grow limitlessly to leave a lasting legacy on the world.
At our institution, we pride ourselves on being a community of lifelong learners. We have developed our program and curriculum to remain adaptable to the changing times. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to choose from an array of challenges inspired by real-life scenarios encountered in the business and entrepreneurial worlds. By engaging in these challenges, you will have the chance to apply, create, and master the competencies that are essential for building a better future.
All of our programs are designed to be fully remote. Our unique learning model emphasizes flexibility in the time required to demonstrate competency in a specific subject area, while maintaining a constant expectation for mastery. Rather than following traditional course structures, you will progress through a series of challenges that enable you to build competencies in real-time, customized to suit your individual learning needs.
Our cutting-edge technology is designed to guide you through the program, adapting to your individual needs and providing feedback from start to finish. The app customizes your learning experience by individually tailoring your goals as a learner within the program and your understanding of core competencies. As you progress through your studies, you will be able to track your learning progress visually, enabling you to remain focused on achieving your desired outcomes. Ultimately, this technology empowers you to take ownership of your learning experience and make it uniquely your own.
We use the concept of 'not yet' as a benchmark when a learner has yet to prove mastery of a challenge or competency. Instead of facing failure for not meeting a particular standard, you are given the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge until you achieve mastery. You can continue to submit your work until reviewers and experts believe that you have fully grasped the chosen concept. At ToU, we do not view this as failure, but rather as a continuous process of improvement with room for growth and progress.
We facilitate the creation of valuable connections among learners, resulting in immersive and productive remote learning experiences. With your cohort, mentors, and extensive global network, you will remain involved and connected through frequent live sessions, course discussions, and events. Our challenge-based approach to learning encourages collaboration and fosters 360° feedback from all participants, including peers, mentors, and vice versa, at all times.
Our commitment to 21st-century education is highlighted by our pursuit of excellence and accreditation.
As an officially state-recognized private university in Germany, we are governed by the Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst (HMWK). To uphold the highest standards of academic rigor, each of our study programs has received additional accreditation from its respective governing authority.
Our Master of Science in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, and Technology is accredited by the Executive Academy of Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). The WU is governed by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business); EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), an internationally recognized accreditation system offered by the European Foundation of Management; and AMBA (Association of MBAs), a prestigious accreditation granted to less than 1% of business schools in the world.
Our Impact MBA program is accredited by Germany’s Accreditation Council through the Accreditation, Certification, and Quality Assurance Institute (ACQUIN), a reputable non-profit organization association comprising over 150 higher education institutions in Germany and abroad.
Our Bachelor's Degree programs are accredited by Germany's Accreditation Council (Akkreditierungsrat) through the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBBA). This accreditation affirms the academic excellence of our programs and underscores our dedication to delivering high-quality education and earning the trust of learners and the academic community.
As a university specializing in distance learning programs, securing accreditation from ZFU (Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht) is of utmost importance. ZFU's primary focus is on consumer protection, guaranteeing the integrity of our student contracts and fees. ZFU scrutinizes these elements to ensure our learners receive transparent and fair terms when enrolling.
