The Partnership

With a population of 11 million, Baden-Wuerttemberg is the third largest of 16 German states, and is one of the most prosperous regions in Germany as it is the center of automotive, electronic and biomedical industries.

The Baden-Wuerttemberg - Connecticut Exchange was brought into being in 1991 as the result of a legislative partnership between the state of Connecticut and the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The program was administered by the Connecticut Office of Higher Education until July 2015, when program administration was transferred to the University of Connecticut. The exchange agreement invites all Connecticut students enrolled in participating four-year colleges and universities to study at any participating institution of higher learning in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
