About the University

Choosing a university is a decision that sets the course for life. CBS International Business School, one of the best private universities of applied science in Germany, puts this at the heart of its business, reflected in the slogan “Creating tomorrow”. Approximately 1,900 young people from about 75 nations are studying at CBS International Business School, embedded in a large network of partnerships with around 120 universities all over the world and numerous large companies.

CBS was founded in 1993 as a pure business school and is characterised by a wide range of English-language study programmes. It was amongst the first universities in Germany to offer the internationally recognized Bachelor’s degree.

Today the portfolio comprises English and German-language Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs with a focus on management as well as MBA programs. The excellent study conditions are based on small learning groups and intensive supervision by the professors and lecturers.

 

State-accredited, independently audited
A degree is only valuable if it is widely recognized. We take care of that in several ways. Firstly, through state accreditation: CBS International Business School is a private university, state-recognized by the Wissenschaftsrat (German Science Council) and the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Science. Secondly, through the regular accreditation of all study programs by the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation) on behalf of the German Accreditation Council. Thirdly, by successfully participating in rankings such as the renowned CHE ranking (known from the study guide of the ZEIT, the leading German weekly newspaper) or the university ranking from Wirtschaftswoche, one of Germany’s best business magazines.

Theory and practice that complement each other perfectly
The task of CBS is to prepare students for career opportunities in business. That is why both the current state of research and strong practical relevance are vital parts of the courses. This is complemented with application-related knowledge, business games, internships, soft skills courses, and business projects, which usually take place in cooperation with well-known companies. Students can also opt for working with conCBS, the CBS International Business School management consultancy with student participation. Thanks to CBS’s extensive business community network and regular career events on campus, students also have the regular opportunity to talk to company representatives.

Those who prefer to get deeper into research can actively participate in research projects and have the chance to publish results. Eight internationally networked, interdisciplinary research clusters at CBS are available for this purpose. Obtaining a doctorate is also possible.

 

Internationality as a lived practice
Canada, Australia, Mexico, Japan, Netherlands, France… students spend semesters abroad at more than 120 partner universities all over the world, supported by the CBS International Office. This internationality is also a vital part of campus life as students come from around 75 nations. Numerous professors and lecturers also have international backgrounds. That is why English is also spoken outside of the lectures. This creates an international atmosphere and promotes intercultural competence – skills that are in demand in international companies.
