In a German first, ESMT Berlin, a state-accredited private business university will accept bitcoin as a currency “for all payments” including tuition.

"Integrating bitcoin as a routine method of payment is a logistical consequence of digitization. Especially for international transactions from countries without a well-functioning banking system, the digital currency offers great advantages through the immediate, practically free-of-charge transfer. This makes bitcoins attractive to us as a means of accepted payment." - ESMT chief financial officer Georg Garlichs
