Come and deepen your knowledge of doing business in Europe in general and Germany in detail, at one of the leading private business schools in Germany.

Lectures and case studies

This innovative three week programme, divided into 3 main areas,

  • The European System
  • European Industries
  • European Uniqueness in the World, allows students to gain academic credits while studying relevant topics.

Company visits

Thanks to the unique EBS network of corporate partners, in this session we offer visits to:

  • the European Parliament and the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France
  • AUDI car manufacturer in Neckarsulm

Social activities

Various events are organized during your three-week stay. They include:

  • A welcome cocktail in the original wine cellar of the campus castle to mingle with your fellow participants
  • Sightseeing in different parts of Germany, connected to the company visit
  • A tour and wine tasting at a venerable old abbey, followed by the farewell BBQ on the last day of the programme.

In addition, the programme allows enough free time for leisure time and the chance to explore Germany and neighbouring countries on your own. Frankfurt, Mainz and Wiesbaden are situated in the geographical centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, known as the Rhine-Main Region. Business and banking are concentrated in this region, as well as shopping, fine dining, cultural activities and plenty of entertainment possibilities. There will be an extended weekend (Sat/Sun/Mon) and students are encouraged to visit neighbouring countries such as France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. There are more than enough options for you to plan fun and exciting weekends and evenings.

Visa Requirements and Registration

Foreign students wishing to enter the Federal Republic of Germany require a residence permit visa for educational purposes (Aufenthaltserlaubnis in der Form des Sichtvermerks) issued by a diplomatic representative of the Federal Republic of Germany (local German embassy or consulate) in the student’s country of origin and entered into the passport. This regulation does not apply to study applicants and students from EU countries and from countries with which Germany has agreed upon different regulations. This currently applies to Australia, Canada, Honduras, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Monaco, New Zealand, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, and the United States. Citizens from a number of other countries can also enter Germany without a visa, if they only want to stay in Germany for a maximum of three months. To ensure that you do not unnecessarily lose time, we would advise you to contact the German embassy or consulate as soon as possible about which documents you need for the visa application.

In case a student should need a visa for Germany, EBS will assist with providing a) the acceptance letter and b) a proof of accommodation. If the embassy requires these documents in the original form, then the EBS will charge a fee of € 50 for courier costs.
