About us

Tomorrow's elite will be different from today's: responsible, sustainable and innovative. It will be an elite that will make a difference in the world of tomorrow.

Who we are Pioneer for practically relevant and international teaching

Prof. Klaus Evard founded EBS University (former European Business School). His vision:

It was my goal to offer an international education in close cooperation with corporate partners.

- Prof. Dr. Klaus Evard

An approach that revolutionised the university landscape. 

Today, EBS University consists of the Business School, Law School and Executive School. We offer a wide range of study programmes - from Bachelor's and First Law Degree to Master's, MBA, Executive MBA and continuing education programmes. Currently, 2,200 students from all over the world are studying on the campuses in Oestrich-Winkel (Business and Executive School) and Wiesbaden (Law School), 44 professors teach and conduct research, and more than 250 employees look after the institution and our students.

Vision and values Knowledge without values has no value.

Why study economics today? Or law? Is it the money? Reputation? Power?

Our students see things differently.

The countless challenges in our society and our world call for a new leadership elite. An elite guided by values: by courage, responsibility, consideration and backbone.

EBS University We teach the leaders of the future

We do this with state-of-the-art didactic methods, with a coaching and leadership hub dedicated to strengthening leadership skills and with our teaching approach of Challenge Based Learning - together with many partners from the field. This enables our students to bring out their best and equip themselves to change the world.
