Special features regarding teachingThe EBS is an entrepreneurial private university that acts like an entrepreneur. In its research and teaching, it deals with an uncertain economic and social environment that is exposed to constant change. EBS students are given a practical, scientifically sound and internationally oriented education that allows them to take up leadership tasks and social responsibility in an environment shaped by uncertainty and volatility.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe international focus of EBS is reflected, for example, in its deliberate policy of maintaining an international student body and having international professors. In addition, the compulsory semester abroad as part of our BSc and MSc programmes represents a key international/cross-cultural experience. The EBS has a network of 260 partner universities, superb in both quantitative and qualitative terms. This way, we are networked with leading universities in 23 of 30 key countries (by GDP) and in 13 of 15 key emerging markets.
