Challenge Based Learning

The EBS Teaching Approach

We offer a practically oriented study programme. Through our close network in the business world, real projects are developed with corporate partners, which our students then work on. Professors change from lecturers to mentors who accompany group work and provide assistance at the right moment. In this way, students consolidate their knowledge.

As in the real working world, challenges are not solved on one's own, but in diverse teams in frequently changing constellations. It is all about jointly identifying the problem, collecting the relevant information and developing proposals for solutions. 


In real-life practical projects, company partners partly function as jurors and partly give professional feedback afterwards. In this way, fundamental competencies are trained:   

  • Critical thinking and questioning
  • general problem-solving ability
  • persuasiveness
  • presentation skills
  • working in an international environment
  • das Arbeiten im internationalen Umfeld
  • communication skills.



Because that is what counts if you want to make a difference in the world.
