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 programmes with a focus on management as well as MBA programmes. The excellent study conditions are based on small learning groups and intensive supervision by the professors and lecturers. CBS prepares students for career opportunities in business.

These are complemented with application-related knowledge, business games, soft skills courses, and business projects, which usually take place in cooperation with well-known companies.
