After successfully completing my Bachelor’s degree in Sports Management, I came to the conclusion that I needed a deeper understanding of business contexts in order to achieve my career goals. During my search for the ideal study programme, I quickly realized that there was nothing comparable to the Preparation Semester at EBS Universität. The semester has provided me with a comprehensive overview all kinds of business issues and prepared me in the best possible way. Regardless of what you have studied before, the Preparation Semester at EBS Universität prepares you perfectly for all Master programmes.

Costs & Financing

Fees & Financing

First-class education in a private institution

The quality of teaching is our focus: The EBS represents one of the best management trainings throughout the German-speaking world. As a private university we fund us to a great extent from tuition fees.

  • Tuition fees of 3,500 EUR per semester

Motivation and performance are your drive

We try to allow excellent candidates access to our studies, regardless of their economic situation. Decisive factors here are performance, motivation and personality. The selection of funding of studies is diverse and often a combination of the different options is useful. Take a look at our study finance overview and find out which offer best suits you.

  • 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

The former club of the EBS EBS Alumni supports students of EBS through a separate education fund.

  • Financing - Financial support by financial institutions, repayment including interest rates, repayment generally starts after signing the contract

A traditional financing from banks or financial institutions may be a good option to finance studies completely or in parts. The KfW Student Loan or the financing model of the Nassauische Sparkasse, for example.
