FORWARD COLLEGE is an innovative Higher Education Institution designed for bright students who wish to achieve academic excellence but also nurture their practical, technological, social, and emotional intelligences. We leverage the whole spectrum of human intelligences: cognitive intelligence to analyse and solve complex problems; social intelligence to engage people across different fields of expertise and backgrounds; emotional intelligence to manage one’s balance, be mindful of others, and nurture creativity; and practical intelligence to implement projects effectively, harness technology, and deliver lasting change. Our students embark on a rotating programme of studies for their degree (‘3 years – 3 cities’), spending a year each in Lisbon, Paris, and Berlin.

Forward college aims to blend tradition (for excellence) and innovation (for relevance): 

Our double degree programme combines 

  •  A fully accredited academic BSc designed by the London School of Economics and awarded by the University of London. Teaching material is delivered to Forward students in-house at Forward College in small groups (max. 15 students), adopting a ‘flipped classroom’ approach.
  •  A highly innovative Bachelor in Business Leadership (BBL), including a range of student-led practical projects. 

Our teaching approach combines 

  • A bespoke tuition with a student-to-faculty ratio of 10:1 with small group classes (15 on average) and weekly one-on-one tutoring (for the academic BA/BSc) 
  • Innovative approaches such as peer to peer, personal development, and project-based learning (for the BBL); digital learning and flipped classroom (for the BSc/BA). 

As an Assistant Professor (Teaching) on our Berlin Campus you will support students’ ambitions and achievements in their BSc in Economics, BSc in Economics and Politics, and BSc in Data Science and Business Analytics.
