Our pledge This makes the Master in Strategy and International Management special

The future cannot be changed with tables, numbers and rules alone. The Master in Strategy and International Management programme provides intensive teaching on thinking strategically and problem-solving. In the process, you will broaden your global vision and develop your personality. Because only personalities who inspire people to change can make a difference in the future world.


Knowledge without values has no value.
We know just how important it is, especially in business management, to work with diverse stakeholders, so that empathy and values make the decisive difference. They shape future leaders who drive things forward and enthrall others. We teach our values courage, responsibility, consideration and backbone in our classes and in our Coaching & Leadership Hub.

 

Strategy and Practice Challenge-based learning.
Throughout your study programme, the EBS didactic concept of challenge-based learning provides insights into working practice. In close cooperation with partner companies, learn about the topics that are essential for future leaders, based on real-life cases. In Real Business Challenges, you develop solutions and ideas, which you then present to the board of managers. In this way, you gain an understanding of the challenges of corporate governance.

 

Focus on you. Personal development and state-of-the-art knowledge.
The trends technology / digitalization and ESG are an integral part of our programme. In addition, you will learn important skills that you will later need in practice as a manager in so-called Professional Development Workshops.

Almost every course involved a project with a company. I fondly remember the great L'Oréal competition, where we had to design the go-to-market approach for the launch of a new product with a team of three students.

Study programme structure Master in Strategy and International Management

The programme comprises four semesters and concludes with a master's thesis - in cooperation with a company. The last semester is reserved for your stay abroad (learn more in this video) at one of our more than 200 partner universities.

Study Content This is what you learn in the Master programme

The study programme is divided into different units. The basic modules prepare you for your future project activities and you develop your leadership skills systematically. In the elective modules, you will deal with the essential issues of executive management. Project work with real-life cases will allow you to consolidate your newly acquired expertise and grow as a leader.


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 international track comprises two semesters at EBS University, one semester of practical experience and final thesis, and one semester at one of our partner universities abroad.

 

Practice Track
You have already gained sufficient experience abroad and would now like to focus on practical experience? Then the Practice Track is perfect for you. This comprises two semesters of studying at EBS University , two semesters for intensive and long-term internships and a final thesis with company-related topics.

 

German Track
An option explicitly designed for non-German speaking students. You will receive compulsory German classes (Business and General) in addition to the lectures and will not go abroad in the 3rd semester, but stay at EBS in Germany. This enables you to improve your career perspectives in Germany. In the fourth semester you will complete your studies with your thesis.

 

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.



Challenged Based Learning

Experience top-class expert lectures and a strong practical orientation. In addition to interactive lectures, there is an emphasis on case studies and real-world projects, so the degree program reflects cutting-edge management practices. In addition, close collaboration with industry leaders and practitioners is encouraged to equip students with the skills, competencies and mindsets required in today's global economy.



Turning managers into leaders.

In addition to the professional training, we support your personal development with the study module "Leadership" already in the curriculum. Furthermore, the topic of leadership is important to us in the development of students, especially in practical terms:

 

  • Leading yourself
    An accompanying coaching programme on personal development provided by certified coaches.
  • Leading Teams
    You work together in international teams during the courses.
  • Leading Organisations
    In a real context, you will work on a business project. Learn about the challenges in a real environment and develop suitable solutions.


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. These includes e.g.

  • Dr. Kjell Gruner, CEO Nordamerika (Porsche)
  • Prof. Dr. Florian Drinhausen, former board member Deutsche Bank

Characteristics and skills Your profile

For a successful career as a manager in a leadership position, you need broad business management knowledge and a strong personality. Good insight into human nature and leadership qualities are just as important as interdisciplinary thinking or a very good mathematical mindset.

  • Soft skills including communication, teamwork or negotiation skills
  • Sense of responsibility and the courage to find creative solutions to problems
  • Very good knowledge of English, as our courses are held in English
