The Professional School’s Learning Model

Academic continuous education for persons remaining in employment at the Professional School of Leuphana University of Lüneburg qualifies would-be and experienced experts and managers with various biographies for the current and future challenges of professional life. The study promotes the development of a culture of the discovering spirit, of the courage to embrace novelty and questioning old beliefs. While learning, one develops the capacity to responsibly and sustainably shape one’s own life and to overcome societal tasks and challenges.
