Marketing for the future

How can marketing have a positive impact on a company's success? How can marketing get people excited about a brand in a sustainable way? How does data help to optimize marketing plans?

In addition to teaching and working with innovative topics and data-driven technologies, marketing is above all about working with people. EBS therefore focuses on the personal development of students and a practice-oriented education in close cooperation with numerous corporate partners.

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. Internation, inspiring, innovative. You are not learning with strangers but with friends, with like-minded people. We want to achieve great things together. Our students organise congresses, cultural events and many other occasions.

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 marketing.

Experience challenge-based learning.
The EBS Master in Marketing is called the "Most Practical Master" for a reason. The highlight here is the Marketing Field Study. Following the EBS approach of project-based and challenge-based learning, students work on a marketing project for one or more corporate partners and present their results in person to the board. We work with partners such as Procter & Gamble, Porsche or Amazon.

We aim to train people who want to pursue a management career in marketing rather than a specialist career. We train aspiring brand managers, heads of marketing and future CMOs. A mix of in-depth knowledge and integrated leadership skills.

Study programme structure

Master in Marketing

The degree programme comprises four semesters (120 ECTS) and integrates intensive cooperation with companies into most courses, in which students work on practice-related projects supervised and coached by our faculty members. In the first semester, in addition to the practical Onboarding Project, the strategic, economic and financial foundations are laid in core modules. The second semester offers you the opportunity to specialise in elective modules and to enhance your practical experience in the Field Project.


You can organise the last two semesters entirely according to your needs: Either through a stay abroad at one of our partner universities (Semester Abroad Track) or through an internship in a company (Practice Track). The last part of the programme is dedicated to your final thesis. With an additional semester abroad in the Semester Abroad Track, you also have the option of obtaining a double degree.

With the Accelerated Track, you have the opportunity to shorten the duration of your studies and complete your Master's degree programme in two semesters (60 ECTS). The prerequisite for this is a Bachelor's degree with 240 ECTS credits or, in the case of a degree with fewer than 240 ECTS credits, corresponding professional experience. Further information can be found in the admission requirements.

During your studies, you will acquire key competences for your future job in Professional Development Workshops and will be prepared for a career as a leadership personality through individual coaching from the EBS Coaching & Leadership Hub. In addition, you will have the opportunity to further develop your international language skills through foreign language courses at the EBS Language Centre.

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

We have designed the Master's programmes to be flexible. Depending on your level of knowledge, skills and goals, you can take the path in your studies that best suits you and your life circumstances.

Semester Abroad Track (120 ECTS)

With the Semester Abroad Track, you gain experience abroad and prepare yourself for an international career. This track comprises the first two semesters at EBS, the third semester abroad at one of our partner universities and concludes in the fourth semester with your thesis.

Practice Track (120 ECTS)

Have you already gained sufficient experience abroad? Then the Practice Track offers you the chance to focus on your practical experience. This track comprises the first two semesters at EBS, one semester for internships and one semester for your thesis. The long and intensive internships can be completed either in the third or fourth semester. The remaining semester is dedicated to your thesis, which may be assigned by a company.


Accelerated Track (60 ECTS)

Accelerate your career. The Accelerated Track gives you the opportunity to shorten the duration of your studies to two semesters. The prerequisite for this track is a Bachelor's degree with 240 ECTS or corresponding professional experience for a degree with less than 240 ECTS. Further information can be found in the admission requirements.


Dual Degree
In addition to your degree at EBS Universität, you can obtain a second international degree (MBA or Master). Extend your studies abroad at one of our partner universities by one semester in the Semester Abroad Track and receive a double degree. This will give you more specialised knowledge in a broader international context and increase your international market value.

Hands-on work with technology in marketing.

Students can conduct experiments in the Marketing Lab on campus, such as integrating AR/VR in the consumer space.

Relevant practice certificates for employers.

As in other master's programmes, students can earn certificates for various skills through collaborations with companies and real-world partners. In the Master in Marketing, for example, we cooperate with Google for this purpose.


Practical relevance at its best.
Challenge-based learning is the order of the day in the Master's in Marketing. We go on field trips with partners from the real world, work on case studies, attend expert workshops, and hold discussions at top-class guest lectures.

Many possibilities. One language.
At EBS Universität 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.
