    Pros

    Das HPI ist Teil der Universität Potsdam, aber anders als andere staatliche Universitäten, ist es privat finanziert. Dadurch siedeln sich Weltklasseforscher an. Der Lehrplan ist sehr praktisch und wirtschaftsorientiert.

    The HPI is part of the university of Potsdam but compared to other public universities its privately funded. This allows to world class researchers to settle. The curriculum is very much practical and industry oriented.

    Cons

    Der einzige Nachteil des HPI ist, dass es noch relativ jung im Vergleich zu typischen deutschen Eliteuniversitäten ist und daher nicht überall gleichermaßen gut angenommen wird.

    The only downside of the HPI is that it's still comparably young compared to typical German elite universities und thus not everywhere equally well received.
