Our pledge You can only have vision when you are at the top

You don’t have vision in the free economy if you put on blinkers. Now and in the future, well-educated generalists will be pioneers. Personalities who shine in many disciplines and easily combine them. With a distinctive international and interdisciplinary approach, EBS University trains the leaders of the future.

 


This is where the world studies for a better world.
EBS is international: people from all over the world meet here to learn to become leaders. In the curriculum itself, as well as through the services of the Coaching & Leadership Hub, we demand and promote openness, thinking outside the box, flexibility and the ability to assert yourself successfully in ever-changing situations.

Better teaching programmes produce people with greater vision.
The degree programme offers a unique mix of subjects. It integrates internationality and interdisciplinarity and thus prepares students for the challenges of the future. EBS maintains partnerships with 90 universities worldwide and a semester abroad is integrated into your studies.

Business administration and law are part of our DNA.
Privately founded as a university of economics in 1971, it has set itself the task of improving the business world, and does so with exceptional levels of commitment and character. The Law School was added in 2011. Born of the same spirit, today, outstanding professors who are passionate about their profession pass on their knowledge, which is why there, too, the students achieve excellent exam results. The combination of the two subject areas forms the best basis for teaching this interdisciplinary course.

Family and friends.
More than 200 partner law firms and companies support EBS students on their journey: the group of affiliated partners includes large international law firms, small to medium-sized companies, major international corporations, and well-known DAX-listed companies. Many of our former students started their careers at one of our numerous business partners immediately after graduation.
