ZU becomes a privately-funded university and adopts the "ZUtwelve" future strategy
With effect from January 1, 2008, ZU will be a privately funded university. Connected with this is the transfer of the existing holding company to the ZU Foundation, in which all of the main sponsors of the university up to this point are represented. In this regard ZU is adopting a strategy for the future. After four years of construction, ZU is laying out numerous projects for the university's development in the coming years under the title of "ZUtwelve". In this way ZU wants to put itself in pole position among private colleges in Germany.
