Cultural Extra-mural activities at EBS

After a trip to a fabulous concert at the Alte Oper Frankfurt, which was organized by an EBS student, I sat musing over the richness that such cultural activities add to one’s education. Most companies have moved away from hiring graduates solely on the strengths of their academic and factual knowledge. In today’s market companies want to recruit well-rounded graduates with a rich involvement in extra-mural activities, be those social initiatives, sporting or cultural activities. Hence the value of attending a concert, opera, theatrical production or a philharmonic orchestra performance should not be under-rated. On the contrary, it is time well spent and provided you openly embrace the music or performance, you can have a wonderful experience.

The EBS Band, a student led association, has a number of performances during the semester on campus which allow students to entertain attendees with their musical abilities. A group of independent student Musicians from the Bachelor and Master classes organized a few concerts last semester and had a concert this April too. The Advents Concert; it was truly an impressive display of string, wind and piano and boasted a couple of opera singers to top it off. All those in attendance, including myself, thoroughly enjoyed themselves. After all, music adds colour to life.

Cultural attractions in the nearby cities of Wiesbaden, Mainz and Frankfurt are numerous. There is a growing trend at EBS whereby students take the initiative and organize outings to some of these cultural events. The experience has a rich educational value, which is interwoven into developing ourselves as well-rounded EBS graduates. Continued and increased support and encouragement of cultural activities and initiatives from the EBS administration needs to take place to continue to grow and strengthen this area, which in my opinion helps develop more rounded EBS graduates.
