“The fact that our university was named Germany’s best private university of applied sciences for business administration by the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche was a wonderful recognition and additional incentive for us.

“At our university, we will guide you to your best possible final degree through personal guidance and our many support measures. Many of our students manage direct entry into international companies such as Google, Audi, REWE and Telekom after graduating or become founders themselves.
“With us, you will find the studies that suit you and your schedule – from full-time bachelor’s and master’s programmes to part-time master’s programmes. You will also find this great flexibility within your study modules, so that you can set individual priorities through numerous electives, specialisations, internships and in some cases obligatory semesters abroad.”

“Our university stands for a long-standing tradition of education – and has done so for more than 25 years. Founded as an academic branch of an educational group that has existed in Cologne since 1908, in 2016 we became part of the Stuttgart Klett Group – a leading education company in Europe which is represented internationally in 18 countries. During your CBS studies you will benefit from our many years of experience in university education”.
“It is well known that it is easier to learn in a respectful environment. As employees of the service departments, we therefore see ourselves as your personal study companions who will support you in all questions concerning your studies and your career. A friendly atmosphere is also important to us in class: “In our small learning groups you will be given individual support and will quickly make contact with your fellow students.”

In addition, we look after our approximately 400 international students and organise numerous events and excursions in the region for them”.
“At the Center for Advanced Sustainable Management , we are working with our international partners from research and industry to promote the establishment of sustainable and responsible management as a matter of course in theory and practice. We transfer current research knowledge directly into the lectures and seminars of the CBS study programmes. With the introduction of the master’s programme “General Management – Sustainable Management” , for the first time, we are also offering you an advanced study programme with a focus on corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship.”
