Our Promise

Big Data. Big Future.

Systematically collecting and analysing data is one thing. Turning it into exciting insights is quite another. The Business Analytics programme at EBS goes further still. Only if you truly understand data, derive clear guidance from it and possess the will to change the economy permanently can you make a positive difference in the world.

Data rules the world – help make sure it’s used for positive change
The global volume of data is growing by 2.5 trillion bytes each day. Big Data is growing four times faster than the global economy. The analysis, evaluation, visualisation and management of data will shape the future, whichever economic field you’re in. Data is a raw material that needs to be understood and fashioned by creative, innovative people. This is where our understanding fits in, because we don’t just focus on the basics of data analysis, we focus on how data can be used in new ways. Because used correctly, data doesn’t only change economic processes. It can lead to a better world.

Experience Challenge based Learning
Data is abstract. Working with it isn’t. In our Business Analytics degree programme, you’ll learn from day one how businesses approach data analysis and processing. Working with our partners from the business world, you’ll gain an understanding into how projects are set up, implemented and communicated.

Leaders wanted.
We are convinced that strong personalities have a strong awareness of values. Values such as responsibility, a strong backbone, courage and consideration. Our accompanying coaching programmes support you in your personal development. In addition, working together in multinational teams during the study programme will make you fit for the future challenges in your job.

Welcome to the EBS family.
The most important part of your studies is not only 'what', but especially 'with whom'. The EBS family is an exceptional community. International, inspiring, innovative. You are not studying with strangers but with friends, with like-minded people. We want to achieve remarkable things together. Our students organise congresses, cultural events or run their own real investment fund.

Every person is different. Numerous ways to do a Master's degree at EBS.

We have designed the EBS master programmes to be flexible, depending on your level of knowledge, skills and goals. Take the study path that best suits you and your circumstances:


Semester Abroad Track
The Semester Abroad Track comprises two semesters at EBS University, one semester at one of our partner universities abroad and concludes with the thesis.


Practice Track

Have you already gained sufficient experience abroad and would now like to focus on practical experience? Then the Practice Track is

perfect for you. This includes two semesters of study at EBS University, an intensive, long internship in the third semester and a final thesis.


German Track
An option developed explicitly for non-German-speaking students. In addition to the lectures, you will receive compulsory German lessons (Business and General) and will not go abroad in the third semester, but stay at EBS in Germany. This enables you to improve your prospects for a career in Germany. In the fourth semester, you complete your studies with your thesis.


Accelerated Track (prerequisite: Bachelor degree with 240 ECTS)
Accelerate your career. If you meet the relevant requirements, you can shorten the master programme to two semesters.


Dual Degree
You can obtain another international degree (MBA or Master) in addition to your EBS degree. Extend your study abroad at one of our partner universities by one semester and receive a double degree. In this way, you gain more expertise in a broader international context. And you increase your global market value.

Challenge-based learning is on the agenda in the Master in Business Analytics. We go on excursions with partners from the field, work on case studies, attend expert workshops and discuss in top-class guest lectures.

Many possibilities. One language.
At EBS University you will study at an international level and in an international environment. That's why all lectures and events are, of course, held in English.

It could hardly be more international.

International professors and lecturers, study groups with high diversity or an integrated stay abroad are without question the best preparation for a career in international top management.

Get to know the lecturers: EBS University is one of the leading business universities in Germany, but we are not satisfied with that: our professors aim to make the Faculty of Business Administration as a management-focused business school, a leader in Europe. In the Master's program, professors with many years of practical experience as well as internationally renowned researchers teach. They all work together to shape leaders for the future.


Our faculty is supported by members of the adjunct faculty. You will be taught by experts who hold top positions in business or are active in leading companies.
