About Us

About Sacred Heart University Luxembourg

Our strong history & reputation

Sacred Heart University is proud of our AACSB accreditation, earned by only 5% of business schools worldwide. In addition, our MBA programs are formally authorized by the Luxembourg Ministry of Higher Education & Research and well-respected in the business and finance community.

Discover an empowering MBA culture

SHULU MBA students bring a strong blend of work experience, professionalism, and creativity. Our student body includes a mix of entrepreneurial thinkers, innovative problem-solvers, egalitarian team players and motivated professionals who thrive in a flexible environment.

Connect with an experienced, diverse class

A European spirit permeates the Sacred Heart University Luxembourg MBA Program, with students from over 40 countries. The open cultural exchange enriches the learning environment and gives students a deeper perspective.

Learn from those who CARE

The SHULU MBA Program is small by intention. Smaller classes mean students get more time with faculty and staff, allowing them to personalize their education journey. Students also get to know their peers in a series of small group interactions.

Celebrating 30 years of higher education in Luxembourg


Sacred Heart University Main Campus,
Fairfled, Connecticut, USA

SHU has educated business leaders at its main campus in Fairfield, Connecticut since 1963 and at its Luxembourg branch since 1991 when Henri Ahlborn, then director of the Chamber of Commerce, reached out to universities in the United States in order to find a partner institution.

Since then, more than 700 business leaders have graduated from more than 40 different countries. Located in the Chamber of Commerce in Kirchberg, the heart of the financial sector and the European Institutions, SHULU benefits from a vibrant environment in a modern facility.

The AACSB accreditation & the Grand Ducal Degree

With AACSB accreditation, SHULU joins an elite membership of fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. AACSB International is considered the premier global accrediting body for schools that offer undergraduate, master and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

In August 2007, Sacred Heart University earned the Grand Ducal Decree which provides authorization of SHULU diplomas in Luxembourg, providing the opportunity to register diplomas with the Luxembourg Ministry of Higher Education.
