The studium universale is designed to integrate philosophical and ethical issues into EBS business, management and legal education, with the aim of fostering interdisciplinarity and personal development. Beginning this semester, the course has been extended to include topics addressing sustainability, service-learning, rhetoric, and intercultural communication.
Studium universale is supervised by the Chair of Philosophy of Science.
"Do it!" service learning offers students from the 3rd semester onwards the opportunity to become active for a limited period of time in a regional non-profit organization. Alongside their studies students become familiar with other social realities, and explore and further develop their own capabilities and interests.
As part of their studies students undertake a project serving a "good” purpose", and then critically reflect upon the learning outcomes. The aim is to foster character traits such as enthusiasm, commitment and self-confidence.
Instead of completing a first internship, students are able to design and implement their own Educare project, through which they make their contribution towards a better society – in the true spirit of corporate social responsibility.

Storytelling with the Young Global Leaders is an integral part of the MBA and Master's programme. It aims to act as a pointer to the future for the next generation and show how each individual is able to use their own capabilities, as a "citizen of the world", to make a positive contribution towards shaping society.
