Erasmus students at the Welcome Dinner on the Orientation Day

As internationally oriented university with numerous partner universities, the contact with other nations and cultures is an inherent part of the EBS curriculum. At the moment, 185 students from all over the world are spending a semester in the Rheingau. The EU program “Erasmus +”, which has set itself the objective to strengthen the international competencies, the personal development, and the employability of students, is of particular importance. By means of its dimension beyond Europe it is to campaign for the European Erasmus region as well as the European Union as study and science location.


“We are looking forward welcoming so many students of this special program on our campus. The international exchange and encounters among the students are not only important experiences for their later professional life but also contribute to the cross-cultural understanding of young people from all over the world, precisely in these times,” describes Dr Petra Kreis-Hoyer, Vice Dean Education at EBS Business School, the opportunities of “Erasmus +” for the students.

For the first time, also four exchange students from Israel are among the participants whose study visits are actively promoted. EBS Universität cooperates with the renowned Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the most important university of the country: “It is an important concern for us also supporting the German-Israeli relations academically and working even closer together with the universities of our partner countries in the future,” Kreis-Hoyer further.

With a cross-faculty proportion of 30 percent and roughly 42 percent in the Master programs, in particular international students shape the campus life at EBS Universität. By enabling students to enhance their range of experiences in a variety of ways, “Erasmus +” lives up to its name.
