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.
