The Führungsakademie der Bundeswehr (FüAkBw) is the General Staff College (also Senior Military Academe) of the German armed forces, the Bundeswehr. Established in 1957, and since 1958 located in Hamburg, it is the successor of the Prussian Military Academy that was established in 1810. Its Motto is "Mens agitat molem", "Mind moves Matter".

The academy offer two main courses: The Lehrgang Generalstabs-Admiralstabsdienst National (LGAN), a 2-year course for staff officers from Germany and other NATO or EU countries, and the Lehrgang Generalstabs-/Admiralstabsdienst mit internationaler Beteiligung (LGAI), a 10-month course, established in 1962, for staff officers from non-NATO/non-EU countries. Between 1962 and 1997, ca. 800 officers from more than 80 nations were educated at the academy. Many former students have been appointed to high military positions in their respective countries after their studies.
