Additional skills rather than pure specialist knowledge

Graduates from EBS Universität have to take on management tasks and social responsibility in a highly dynamic environment. Our students learn to pervade complex structures, constantly review specialist knowledge they have gained and, if necessary, to develop this systematically.

During the first three weeks of your studies you will work on a large-scale case study in the field of “Autonomous Driving” and receive a comprehensive introduction to the most important disciplines of business administration. In technical lectures and workshops we will challenge you and together we will explore how we can react to unforeseen circumstances and create opportunities in the unknown, in that we take on uncertainty.

Skills to take a major step forward

Digital Skills // Digital Transformation - Digitisation changes our lives: at social, economic and political level.
