Be part of a better future

EBS Universität offers you unique leadership training. We strengthen leadership skills with individual coaching, on-the-job training, field studies and an integrated stay abroad. Because we know that only strong personalities "up there" will make the difference.

The world studies here for a better world.
EBS is international to the core. People from all over the world meet here to train as leaders. Firmly established in the curriculum, but also through the services of the Coaching & Leadership Hub, we demand and promote openness, the ability to think outside the box, be flexible, and successfully assert oneself in ever-changing situations. EBS has partnerships with numerous universities around the world. This allows our students to study abroad for one, two or if they decide for a double degree even three semesters.

Better teaching programmes mean people with more vision.
Besides studying, you have the opportunity to organise large business congresses, do sports together or get involved in social activities. And so you grow as a person and as a leader.

Learn to lead directly. Das EBS Onboarding Project:
The first semester starts for all students with the 2-week Onboarding Project: In the spirit of challenge-based learning, you plan and realise a project with a practice partner. Deep dive from day one, solve challenges together and present your results at the end of the project. Experience exciting lectures, field trips and presentations on the big stage. Interdisciplinary learning, teamwork, creative problem-solving and presentation skills will be trained here. There is no better way to prepare for real business life.

Family and Friends.
Numerous partner companies accompany the EBS students during their studies. The circle of EBS-affiliated partners ranges from small to medium-sized companies, international corporations and renowned DAX companies. Many former students immediately start their careers in one of our many partner companies.

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.

Study content

This is what you learn during your study programme

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.

    International applicants who have a secondary school diploma that does not follow the German higher education standards need to complete a 120-minute EBS online assessment instead of the regular tests. If you have taken the SAT, ACT or Gaokao, we will recognise this exam in conjunction with your secondary school diploma instead of the EBS online assessment.

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.
