Our pledge

Managers become leaders

Who will make a difference in the economy and the world in the future? The professionally proficient? The diligent? Or those people with personality?

At EBS, we attach significant importance to giving our students an all-embracing education, with innovative learning methods, coaching and teaching values unparalleled in the German university landscape.

From theory to practice. And back.
Our didactic method of challenge-based learning is simple: right from the start of your study programme, you work together with our corporate partners. You start with an onboarding project, a social impact challenge, in which you work with a corporate partner to address challenges with the necessary foresight. At the end of the week, you compete in your teams and present your work.

A strong community. Networking among each other and with partners.
Small class sizes mean you learn with and from each other right from the start. Together you go on field trips to well-known companies and experience high-profile leadership talks. Extracurricular activities and cultural events also offer the opportunity to network and make friends outside of your studies.

Don't leave your career to chance, leave it to our Career Services Center.
Here, we work together with a large number of employers from the business community. This includes fireside chats with potential employers, career fairs and individual consulting, training the relevant talent sets and mentorship.

Make more of yourself. A lot more.
We know that knowledge alone does not count in leadership positions, so we focus on further developing your skills as a leader with our experienced Coaching and Leadership Hub. Personal development and individual career coaching are an integral part of the curriculum. Because only those who inspire others can make a difference in the world.

Study Content

This is what you learn in the full-time MBA

The full-time MBA emphasizes business analytics, business activity, business innovation, as well as language skills.

EBS prepares you for the next step in your career. Managerial labor market trends including skill and competency needs of businesses are analyzed including state-of-the-art techniques of talent selection & development. Professional coaches support each student in the alignment of career goals to personal strengths. Personal branding and interviews skills are trained with HR professionals individually. MBA leadership talks, company visits, and field trips nurture the self-esteem experience.

You understand to reflect on your leadership identities and begin to develop your own personal development plan on the journey to becoming an effective leader. This is undermined by the theoretical and behavioural foundations of leading individuals, teams and organisations. You will be able to critically assess and respond to different managerial and leadership dilemmas and prioritize stakeholder demands and needs. Key theories related to managing diversity and ethics and sustainability are developed and how those can be implemented.

Digitisation, mechanisation and globalisation are driving disruptive change in business and society. Of course, topics such as Big Data, Business Analytics and Performance Management play a crucial role in the EBS full-time MBA programme. In this field of study you learn not only the key tools and methods of data analysis but also, based on the findings, how to make the right decisions and identify new business opportunities.

In-depth knowledge in Strategic Management, Operations, Supply Chain Management and Marketing are essential to successfully plan and operate corporate processes. We provide you with modern methods and tools to align your actions with long-term success. Simulations and business games complement the theoretical basics in these study modules.

We provide you with optimum preparation for increasingly unpredictable developments. What sounds like a contradiction is part of the programme: The MBA programme teaches you how to react flexibly to incalculable factors and use them for your entrepreneurial purposes. You will learn to design, pursue, and continuously improve future strategies. You assimilate, including in a business field study, how tomorrow's business models must be thought through and developed. And you identify how established businesses can remain successful in fast-changing times.

We offer German, Chinese, English, French and Spanish language courses. You take a very close look at the respective everyday and professional worlds, acquire business-fluent language skills and learn about cultural characteristics. The courses can be taken parallel to your actual studies and serve as a basic door opener to the desired job market.


Studying with distinction

Characteristics and skills

Your profile

There is less and less time to gain and broaden experience and to grow into new positions. Therefore, an MBA study programme best complements an existing degree with work experience. This will further develop your leadership skills and consolidate your expertise.

The EBS full-time MBA is a challenging study programme. Your further career will be, too. Therefore, it is particularly important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you disciplined?
  • Do you have stamina?
  • Do you stand up for your convictions?
  • Are you an analytical thinker?
  • Are you flexible and open-minded?
  • Are you an empathetic person?
  • Do you love working with other people, both nationally and internationally?
  • Can you engage (inspire) others?


What you need for your future must be a part of you now. With our support, you can and will then make the most of yourself. With the EBS MBA, you will not only be provided with all the important basics of business administration but will also be specifically prepared for leadership tasks in senior management.
