About the DAV

Topic Image  About the DAV

The German Foreign Trade and Commerce Academy (DAV) in Bremen has been at the top of the logistics sector in further training and education for decades. It has been training employees with a passion for logistics in close cooperation with companies since 1960. More than 4,500 students have successfully graduated from the academy since then and have made waves in the logistics sector as technical and management experts.

Profound technical knowhow, a solid commercial basis and holistic thinking in process chains characterise the degree course at the DAV. Praxis-relevant content is taught by experienced lecturers in a personal atmosphere.

DAV graduates are in high demand in industry, not only because of their theoretical knowledge but most of all due to their ability to develop, present and implement concepts as part of a team.

These students have access to an excellent network of alumni and companies. Former students retain close contact to this network as members of the “Association of Sponsors and Graduates” and can quickly and easily access knowhow if required.
