Connections to the Corporate World
Our campus is located in the Rhine-Main area, one of the most vibrant financial centres in Europe and home to the European Central Bank (ECB). Many potential employers are headquartered in the immediate vicinity. These include leading German banks like Deutsche Bank, main European branch offices of international investment banks like J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley as well as international consultancy companies like McKinsey & Company and BCG. We maintain strong links with most of the major players in the finance sector and also partner with a large number of international corporations. Many of our graduates work in investment banking, wealth management, risk management, venture capital & private equity, private banking and in the finance departments of multinational companies.
Financial markets continue to play a central role in the global economy. While financial-sector institutions may be transitioning into new business models, there is still a growing demand for well-trained financial analysts, portfolio managers and risk managers. Chief financial officers play an ever-greater role in company management, which translates to excellent career prospects for corporate finance experts in non-financial firms, investment banking and consultancy.
In order for you to get real working experience and the best shot at entry-level positions, an internship with a duration of a minimum of six weeks is integrated into the programme. This can be planned to suit your individual career goals.
Semester Abroad and Dual Degree Option
Getting international experience is essential for a business leader. That’s why it’s compulsory to either spend a semester abroad at one of our 240 partner institutions or continue your stay in Germany (for students whose degree was obtained in a non-German-speaking country). You can also spend an extra semester abroad and combine your EBS Master’s qualification with an MBA or a specialist Master’s degree from your host university.
Special Preparation Semester for Students with a non-business degree
At EBS, you can even earn an internationally recognized Master of Science without holding a degree in business studies. For students who have a non-business Bachelor’s degree e.g. in computer science, Political science, law or engineering, we are proud to offer a preparation semester with the required business knowledge for the EBS Master’s programme. The preparation semester is begun the semester before starting the Master of Science.
German Track for students who have already studied abroad
Instead of spending a semester abroad, students with a degree from a non-German-speaking country can spend a further semester at EBS in Germany, giving them the opportunity to learn more about the country and the culture. Over three semesters at EBS, you will be able to improve your German language and intercultural skills enormously. And greatly improve your job perspectives in a German multinational organization after your graduation.
