A FASCINATING STUDY FIELD - Real Estate is one of the most fascinating study tracks combining a myriad of fields ranging from finance, law, economics, valuation, risk management, development to investment. On top of that, Real Estate is a discipline with a tangible and substantial impact on society and economies – imagine a developed economy without buildings to work, live, and strive. But Real Estate is not only delivering a commodity, but together with other disciplines going beyond that in shaping how we want to live and work in the future.

PRACTICAL RELEVANCE - The Master of Science in Real Estate programme at EBS provided me with excellent theoretical and practical real estate knowledge. The combination of lectures and the mandatory internship as well as the semester abroad provides a solid foundation for a ideal start as a real estate professional. In addition, it supported me in building my own network, which in the end essentially contributed to make my first successful steps within the real estate industry and find an interesting position after my graduation.

Requirements & Application

To take part in the EBS assessment center, you are required to submit the following documents:

  • completed online application
  • proof of first degree for admission to the Master’s programme
  • detailed overview and condensed description of first degree content and (where available) the Diploma Supplement
  • CV with photo (in English)
  • letter of motivation (in English)
  • proof of internship
  • proof of advanced English language skills (TOEFL, IELTS or equivalent proof)
  • valid GMAT, GRE or EBSgrad (EBSgrad = internal postgraduate admission test)

On the basis of these documents, the admission committee determines whether the applicant fulfils the requirements for admission to the Master’s programme at EBS and should thus be invited to the EBS Master’s Admissions Process.

Proof of a Bachelor or equivalent degree

A Bachelor´s degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS from a college, university, or technical school of acceptable standing is the major entry requirement for admission to the programme:

  • For students who hold a non-business Bachelor’s degree EBS offers a preparation semester, where you can gain the required business knowledge for the MSc programmes.
  • If your first degree is in the field of business studies or in a business studies related subject you can directly enter the 18 months Master of Science programmes.

Proof of English language skills

Proof of advanced English language skills can be demonstrated by TOEFL, IELTS or equivalent.


A valid GMAT or GRE is required. The score is significant for the allocation of study places abroad in the third semester. Applicants also have the chance to take the internal GMAT aquivalency exam, the EBSgrad.

Letter of motivation and CV

In addition to a current CV, applicants should submit a letter of motivation of approximately two pages in length outlining in detail the reasons for applying for the respective Master’s programme. Proof of work placement

Proof of internship

EBS traditionally places great value on practice-relevant education, therefore proof of 10-week work placements is a prerequisite for admittance to the Master’s programme. Work placements in Germany and abroad are acceptable, on condition that they were completed during or after the Bachelor’s or equivalent degree programme.

EBS Master’s Admission Process

The Master’s admission process is a standardized process developed by staff and faculty members at EBS and conducted under their direction and supervision. If the application documents meet our admission requirements, candidates will be invited to take part in the EBS Personal Master’s Assessment (PMA). The PMA consists of a 45-minute interview.

Candidates who participate in the PMA are evaluated by small groups of specially trained and experienced observers. They assess the candidates’ motivation, their social competence, their abstract reasoning skills, and their communication and presentation skills.

Once evaluation of the oral admission process has been completed, candidates will be informed within a week after their assessment whether they have gained a study place at EBS. Upon request, the offer of a study place may be converted into a study place reservation for the following year.

Fees for taking part in the PMA amount to 100 euros.
There is no legal right to a study place.

  • 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
