The coaching programme of EBS Universität
“We have developed this programme because coaching is one of the most effective and innovative instruments in personal development, particularly for executives. With this, the students are able not only to learn about this instrument at an early stage of their course but, at the same time, to see for themselves how valuable it can be.” – Prof. Dr Backhausen (he was instrumental in designing the concept of the EBS Coaching Programme)
Coaching offer for students
The coaching offer is part of the academic training and is unique in the German university landscape. It is not offered in this form at any other university in the German-speaking world. The programme is based on the realisation that the so-called “soft skills” – i.e. social and personal competencies – are increasingly important success factors for studies and later professional activities and challenges, in addition to intellectual abilities. Upon request, all EBS students receive personal coaching with up to four meetings per semester.
But how qualified are our coaches? All coaches are experienced executives from the field who undergo uniform training at EBS Universität to become a “Systemic Coach (EBS)” and are thus trained according to our in-house philosophy. Most of them have an international background. The spectrum is impressive and ranges from investment bankers and management consultants to actors and opera singers.
