Welcome to EBS Executive School

Continuing education as a core university task: VUCA* requires lifelong learning

As a leading provider of continuing education for specialists and executives, EBS Universität has been a strong brand for decades, standing for high quality of its content and its lecturers. An environment characterised by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambivalence* (short: VUCA) as well as the rapidly advancing digitalisation is leading to a change of thinking in the workplace and is questioning successful business models. Managers must be prepared to deal with topics such as artificial intelligence and autonomous driving, as well as to deal with constant change and lifelong learning in order to keep pace with change - in the best case scenario, to help shaping change. EBS Universität is meeting these challenges by founding a third faculty. Through its unique combination of academic excellence, strong practical relevance and methodological competence, EBS Executive School guarantees first-class continuing education in the fields of business and law. We offer this service at the highest level to specialists and executives. In doing so, EBS Executive School orients itself towards international standards.

About us

Those who constantly develop themselves further keep the connection. EBS Executive School has set itself the goal of acting as a partner to accompany and promote the development of companies, teams and individual employees and to support them in their current and future management tasks. This enables them to successfully master the challenges of uncertainty and dynamically developing framework conditions and economic relationships. The programmes and projects of EBS Executive School provide university-level information on how the newest scientific findings can be applied in practice.

Scientists and practitioners use their expertise to take responsibility for the various programmes and projects in the fields of economics and law. The participants benefit from different learning formats: In addition to open certificate programmes and seminars, the portfolio also includes company-specific products, specialist conferences and congresses as well as personality and specialist coaching.

Our learning formats consist of presence and distance learning offers (webinars, virtual classrooms as well as e-learnings) and have the goal of imparting current scientific knowledge with a high practical relevance. We design our qualification measures both as pure presence units and within the framework of blended learning approaches (combination of presence and distance learning formats). In addition, we offer coaching as an instrument of personnel development and support our students in practical implementation.

Corporate Programmes

The requirements for managers and professionals depend on their geographical location, industry, company and position. Digitization levels, market dynamics and uncertainties in the environment are not comparable in any two constellations - nor are the people who act in this context. Therefore, we work with you to develop programmes that are tailored to the learning needs of the respective target group in terms of duration, learning objectives, learning content and method mix. Application orientation, i.e. the transfer of what has been learned into the respective practice, is also a special focus with regard to the learning formats used. Thus, we also use preparation or follow-up measures with direct reference to corporate practice and support companies in the concrete implementation and implementation of process or structural changes. Upon request (and after the required performance records have been provided), these programmes can be completed by the participants with an certificate from EBS Universität.

In terms of content, we also cover the entire range of core topics at EBS Universität within the framework of the corporate programmes and combine these with industry and company specifics. We work closely with the institutes of the faculties of EBS Universität (EBS Business School and EBS Law School), as well as external lecturers and cooperation partners from business practice.
