After studying at EBS, the world is open to you. With our business and industry partners and our strong alumni network, you have the best career prospects.
Many years ago, I decided to study at EBS because I was particularly impressed by the small group concept with intensive learning units and the targeted professional and personal support.

Any university is only as good as the people who teach and learn there. Just how good EBS is can perhaps be gauged from our network of more than 10,000 former students. In the EBS Alumni Association, more than 3,400 alumni are actively involved in supporting our students.
They all have their very own story connecting them with EBS.
There is a special sense of community at EBS University. Characterized by commitment and entrepreneurial spirit, it endures across generations.
You start your six semesters with a two-week Onboarding Project. In your second year, you will spend at least one semester at one of our 200 partner universities abroad.
If you choose the dual degree option, you study for three semesters at EBS and three at a partner university. During the summer months, internships are planned, optionally also abroad. We offer language courses (incl. country specifics and culture) in preparation for your time abroad.
International business studies with a degree at EBS University
Business studies with a degree from EBS University - you spend five semesters at EBS University and one semester abroad (learn more in this video). Optionally, the programme can be extended by a seventh semester to increase the ECTS to be earned to 210.
Dual degree option
You spend the first part of your studies at EBS University and then transfer to one of our partner universities for the second part of your studies. This will give you a Bachelor of Science degree from EBS and a degree from your university abroad.
EBS graduates take on management tasks and social responsibility in a highly dynamic environment. Our students learn to penetrate complex structures, constantly review specialist knowledge they have gained and, if necessary, to develop this systematically.
The compulsory courses consist of all essential areas of business administration and economics. Teaching is interdisciplinary and based on the modular-integrative concept:
We combine related subjects into networked teaching units (modules), linking methods and theory with specialist applications (integration). In this way, you can quickly recognise the sense and benefit of methods and theories and will acquire knowledge more easily and sustainably.

A distinctive feature of the Bachelor in Business Studies at EBS: You can study according to your interests, goals and talent already in the Bachelor's programme. You decide on a specific focus in the 5th semester.
AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is a global not-for-profit organisation that brings together educators, students and businesses to achieve a common goal: to educate the next generation of leaders. Since 1916, AACSB has stood for the highest standards of quality, providing quality assurance, business education information, and learning and development services worldwide.
In 2022, EBS Universität was reaccredited by Wissenschaftsrat, the German Council of Science and Humanities, for the next 5 years.
This academic seal of quality is awarded to non-governmental universities whose performance in teaching and research meets recognised scientific standards. The period of accreditation by the Wissenschaftsrat is for a maximum of ten years, depending on the outcome of the review process. The Wissenschaftsrat is one of Germany’s most critical science policy advisory bodies and advises the federal and state governments on developing universities, science and research. In the multi-stage accreditation procedure, which includes the submission of a self-report by the university and a visit to the university by an external group of experts over several days, the university is evaluated in eight key areas. These include its academic quality in research and teaching, its structures and equipment, and its quality assurance and development.
All study programmes at EBS Universität are accredited by the Accreditation Council and are reviewed regularly in cooperation with the accreditation agency FIBAA.
The superordinate Foundation Akkreditierungsrat is an association of the German federal states aiming for quality assurance in learning and teaching at German universities. Since 2018, following the conversion of the German accreditation process, the Akkreditierungsrat has focused on the decision of accreditations. These are based on reviews of the accreditation agencies on programme accreditations as well as system accreditations. Thus, the Akkreditierungsrat plays an essential role in the final evaluation of the respective study programme. The Accreditation Council only accepts expert reports from accreditation agencies that have the EQAR registration of the Accreditation Council. The degree programmes at EBS Universität have been assessed by FIBAA, which is notably recognised in business and economics.

Knowledge and personality test
We use the knowledge test to assess your mathematical and logical-analytical abilities as well as your problem-solving skills, which are necessary for successfully completing your studies. This part of the selection procedure takes about 30 minutes.
The personality test is a self-assessment of your suitability for the business or law degree programme at EBS Universität. It helps you to assess whether the study programme you have chosen suits you and meets your expectations. This test takes about 20 minutes.
Good to know: if you have taken the SAT, ACT or Gaokao, we will recognise this exam in conjunction with your secondary school diploma instead of the knowledge and personality test and instead of the EBS online assessment for international applicants.
Personal selection interview
In order to get to know you personally and to be able to assess you even better, we conduct a 30-minute individual interview. Here we assess your motivation and social skills. During this procedure, the decisive factors are performance and learning motivation, your social-communicative profile, your willingness to take social responsibility and your initiative.
We will inform you of the final decision no later than one week after the selection interview.
