Studienprogrammübersicht General Management

Additional skills rather than pure specialist knowledge

EBS graduates 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.

Skill Accelerator // Dealing with Uncertainties - From the very beginning you will work over several weeks on large-scale case studies and be given a comprehensive introduction into the key disciplines of business administration. In specialist lectures and workshops, we will challenge you and together we will explore how we can react to the unexpected and create opportunities by way of 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. Sound knowledge and confident handling of new technologies are also vital for managers because every field of business administration has its very own digital transformation relevance. Whether in the finance sector, for instance BitCoins and FinTech, or the emergence of new technologies in marketing, we create a connection to these topics in our curriculum and teach you the necessary digital skills.

Knowledge in special subjects with added value

Specialisation - specialised training in the bachelor programme offers students the opportunity to specialise at an early stage according to individual talents and interests. This is beneficial for all those involved: the graduates begin their professional careers with a competitive knowledge edge - and companies are pleased to have excellently trained young talents.

In addition, you benefit from the fact that you are deployable from product management through market research right up to sales in many relevant corporate divisions. Graduates can look forward to a broad career spectrum with excellent development potential.

  • Strategy & Management Consulting
