Foundation of EBS University
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.

Our goal for the new Law, Politics & Economics programme is to prepare students for the world of tomorrow. This includes excellence in a core subject, but also the ability to approach the tasks of the future as a generalist.
The transformation to a knowledge-based society and advancing digitization have created huge demand for interdisciplinary and internationally oriented specialists and managers.
Added to this is the demographic change in Western society, which dramatically improves the opportunities for highly qualified staff on the labour market in the medium term.Corporate Partners
Once you complete your Bachelor in Law, Politics and Economics, the world is your oyster. With our partners from business and industry as well as the strong alumni network, you have optimal career prospects: whether it is in management, strategic leadership, research or in the public communications of companies, associations, political and social institutions, non-profit organisations or think tanks. Starting a business is also an option that is open to you after graduation.
We successfully achieve our goal of imparting knowledge and values. This is proven by a network of more than 10,000 alumni who work in top positions. EBS Alumni e.V. is always there to support you during and after your studies. You see - we are a very big family.
The programme comprises three years of study and is divided into law, political science and business administration. Each subject area is not only taught separately, but also interdisciplinarily. You start your studies with an intensive introduction to the disciplines of law, political science and economics. In the second year, you will focus on expanding your personal and professional skills. In the third year, you will spend a semester at one of our 200 partner universities abroad (learn more in the video). During the summer months, internships (8 weeks in total) are scheduled, optionally also abroad. To prepare for the semester abroad, we offer language courses (incl. country and culture). The programme ends with the Bachelor's thesis.
The Law, Politics, and Economics programme combines subjects from three disciplines and combines them with an international orientation. The combination of these perspectives enables graduates to take on leadership tasks and social responsibility in a highly dynamic environment. We enable them to independently penetrate complex structures and to think in new ways, as well as to permanently review and specifically further develop acquired specialist knowledge.
AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is a global not-for-profit organisation that brings together educators, students and businesses to achieve a common goal: to educate the next generation of leaders. Since 1916, AACSB has stood for the highest standards of quality, providing quality assurance, business education information, and learning and development services worldwide.
In 2022, EBS Universität was reaccredited by Wissenschaftsrat, the German Council of Science and Humanities, for the next 5 years.
This academic seal of quality is awarded to non-governmental universities whose performance in teaching and research meets recognised scientific standards. The period of accreditation by the Wissenschaftsrat is for a maximum of ten years, depending on the outcome of the review process. The Wissenschaftsrat is one of Germany’s most critical science policy advisory bodies and advises the federal and state governments on developing universities, science and research. In the multi-stage accreditation procedure, which includes the submission of a self-report by the university and a visit to the university by an external group of experts over several days, the university is evaluated in eight key areas. These include its academic quality in research and teaching, its structures and equipment, and its quality assurance and development.
All study programmes at EBS Universität are accredited by the Accreditation Council and are reviewed regularly in cooperation with the accreditation agency FIBAA.
The superordinate Foundation Akkreditierungsrat is an association of the German federal states aiming for quality assurance in learning and teaching at German universities. Since 2018, following the conversion of the German accreditation process, the Akkreditierungsrat has focused on the decision of accreditations. These are based on reviews of the accreditation agencies on programme accreditations as well as system accreditations. Thus, the Akkreditierungsrat plays an essential role in the final evaluation of the respective study programme. The Accreditation Council only accepts expert reports from accreditation agencies that have the EQAR registration of the Accreditation Council. The degree programmes at EBS Universität have been assessed by FIBAA, which is notably recognised in business and economics.

Knowledge and personality test
We use the knowledge test to assess your mathematical and logical-analytical abilities as well as your problem-solving skills, which are necessary for successfully completing your studies. This part of the selection procedure takes about 30 minutes.
The personality test is a self-assessment of your suitability for the business or law degree programme at EBS Universität. It helps you to assess whether the study programme you have chosen suits you and meets your expectations. This test takes about 20 minutes.
Good to know: if you have taken the SAT, ACT or Gaokao, we will recognise this exam in conjunction with your secondary school diploma instead of the knowledge and personality test and instead of the EBS online assessment for international applicants.
Personal selection interview
In order to get to know you personally and to be able to assess you even better, we conduct a 30-minute individual interview. Here we assess your motivation and social skills. During this procedure, the decisive factors are performance and learning motivation, your social-communicative profile, your willingness to take social responsibility and your initiative.
We will inform you of the final decision no later than one week after the selection interview.
