Digitalization means lifelong learning - EBS supports executives with further development programmes

With its rapidly advancing digitisation, “VUCA World” is turning the working world inside out. Today’s successful business models are being seriously challenged. The EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is meeting these challenges by establishing a third faculty: the EBS Executive School supports decision-makers with part-time professional development programmes. Based on current university research in the fields of economics and law, they are given the necessary tools to succeed in a digitised market environment. Prof. Ronald Gleich has been appointed Founding Dean.

Artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, new financial technologies: present job profiles need to be realigned. With more than 200 business partners, EBS Universität is one of the leading business schools in Germany and has good insight into practice: managers must be prepared to deal with constant change and lifelong learning in order to keep pace with change - and to help shape it.

“Those who want to be successful and productive cannot avoid lifelong learning. Professional development concepts at university level play an important role here. With the EBS Executive School, we are focusing on topics of the future that decision-makers of today can no longer ignore”, says Prof. Markus Ogorek, President of the EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht.

The EBS Executive School programmes teach, at university level, how to apply the latest scientific findings in practice. In terms of quality, integrating executive education into the EBS Universität takes the offer of education and professional development programmes to a new level. Participants benefit from the various learning formats: in addition to open certificate programmes and seminars, the portfolio also includes company-specific programmes, specialist conferences and congresses as well as personality and specialist coaching.

“The professional development programmes at the EBS Universität stand for quality and forward-thinking knowledge transfer. Being involved in building up the Faculty from the very beginning is an incredibly exciting task that I am very much looking forward to,” says Prof. Ronald Gleich, since 2007 co-founder and chairman of the EBS Universität’s Strascheg Institute for Innovation, Transformation & Entrepreneurship (SITE). SITE is one of the leading innovation institutes in Germany with more than 30 employees, including 9 professors. Until the end of the year, Gleich is Managing Director of Horváth Academy, a subsidiary of the international management consultancy Horváth & Partner.
