Partnerships play a very important role in progressing the PRME at EBS. They are e.g. a crucial factor in establishing success Good Citizenship projects between NGO´s, students and Companies.
Corporate partners are pivotal for our research activities. They not only provide practical challenges to which the theory must answer but are also active in funding new chairs and institutes, concerning ethics, sustainability and social business at EBS. In addition EBS entertains close relations with the state of Hesse and the communities of Oestrich-Winkel, Wiesbaden and Frankfurt as some of its most prominent stakeholders.
Institutional partners of EBS are e.g. the City of Wiesbaden. Together we aim at building a social business network that initiates projects to help solve social problems. Wiesbaden is one of two first cities worldwide to implement a comprehensive social business concept, known as a "Social Business City". This includes the founding of various new social businesses; transformation of existing businesses into social businesses; setting up a financial infrastructure for social businesses and establishing social business incubators who can support Wiesbaden as well as partner cities in the creation of social business cities. We are also engaged in the “Golden Lily” Award: This is an awards scheme in which EBS Business Ethics Institute cooperates with the City of Wiesbaden in order to acknowledge companies for their local community engagement. EBS also contributes to the initiative “Learn local” (Lernen vor Ort). This is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to support local communities in creating a coherent offering of educational programmes. In this context, EBS Business School welcomed the former President of the German federal Parliament on campus for the inception of the initiative in the Rheingau-Taunus area.
Non-profit partners of EBS are e.g. the Young Global Leaders Forum, World Vision Institute, Caritasverband Wiesbaden-Rheingau, Diakonie Wiesbaden, Lebenshilfe Rheingau-Taunus e.V., Stiftung “Zukunft helfen”, Go Smile Uganda e .V. and the student initiative MAD e.V.
