The programme lasts three semesters and concludes with your Master’s Thesis - often in cooperation with companies. You will spend two semesters at EBS, the last semester is reserved for your time abroad at one of our 230 partner universities.

It is underpinned by regular interaction with German automobile manufacturers, suppliers, mobility associations and policymakers.

  • Scholarships - financial and / or non-material support, no repayment, no interest

The EBS herself, but also independent foundations offer scholarships in different style and performance.

  • Education Fund - Financial and moral support, if necessary, repayment including interest rates, repayment starts only after graduation
