OPTIMAL CONDITIONS - EBS allowed me the freedom to pursue self-development, which goes far beyond course content that other universities are certainly able to teach just as well. The combination of internationality, language skills, direct links to business practice and, above all, the opportunity to take the initiative and make a difference gave me the edge over my peers at the start of my professional career. It was like a kick-start. And that’s what it’s all about: To be ahead of the competition at that key point in time!

And it goes without saying that the alumni network is also invaluable. The opportunities it offers, both in professional and personal terms, are endless and hugely beneficial.
