News from Berlin: In autumn 2016 the Berlin campus moved to the media hotspot of Berlin, right into the urban and inspiring Kreuzberg, near the Spree.
SAE Institute Berlin: The Start-Up Capital
Berlin continues to attract artists, creative people and young entrepreneurs – this innovative metropolis is considered to be an international melting pot of humanities and media and was elected by the famous city developer and author Richard Florida to be the only German city with the title „Creative City“ – thus, Berlin is in line with cities such as New York, London and Shanghai.

However, Berlin stands out not only for her creativity, international character and charm, but also for her impressive achievements in the creative industry, the same industry which is responsible for Berlin and it’s region largest market growth. Thus, making Berlin and the Brandenburg area the most substantial locations inside of Germany regarding the games industry, new media, web development, mobile content and of course an unofficial music capital.
Many significant companies and international players in the media industry are located in Berlin and the surrounding area such as Wooga, Big Point, SoundCloud, Universal, UFA and even Axel Springer.
Berlin also offers an exciting music scene, hip bars and clubs, a great theater repertoire, plenty of operas and concert halls, a lively arts scene with numerous museums and exhibitions and galleries and studios in addition to internationally renowned major events such as the Berlinale, Fashion Week or the Berlin Music Week.
Nevertheless, despite the continued growth of the capital’s popularity, rent and living costs remain relatively low in comparison to other German cities and are still affordable.
The SAE Institute Berlin opened in 1988 and is one of the most experienced degree-centers with multidisciplinary projects. Thanks to the close contact of SAE’s lecturers with the creative industry, students have plenty of options and opportunities to collaborate – with major players such as the Berlinale – in order to look behind the scenes and gather experience or establish contacts. Further more, the Berlin campus is characterized by its generous, modern premises.
