Ten Good Reasons



Students and lecturers from all over the world get to meet each other on the international CBS campus. Moreover, you can both study for a semester at one of the numerous renowned CBS partner universities and combine this with a placement abroad. Studying here equips you with knowledge and experience which you cannot cope without in companies which act abroad or internationally. Under the instruction of lecturers with a global background we train your foreign language skills, also enabling you to acquire valuable information pertaining to the conventions of various economic zones and mentalities and providing you with practical tips on the business etiquette of the respective countries.



Both the professors and the Career Services department maintain close contact to well-known (inter)national enterprises from all sectors. You will process genuine case studies from companies in workshops and support them in finding solutions. Moreover, renowned companies present career opportunities and current specialist subjects on-campus within the scope of student events or “extracurricular studies”. Furthermore, industrial placements are a fixed component of the study programmes and many of the students already collaborate closely with a company when preparing their Bachelor of Arts thesis. With this, CBS already offers you an excellent platform for openings at interesting domestic and foreign companies during your studies.

Fact-based and compact


No other university in Germany has enjoyed such long experience with Bachelor of Arts degree courses. This provides you with the advantage that you complete a fact-based management degree with all the additional qualifications required. These include, for example, foreign language training, personal skills coaching or gaining experience abroad.

Personal Skills


Your confident appearance and expert knowledge are critical for your later success. That is why CBS trains your personal and methodical competence with a versatilely designed skills development programme, for example with courses on rhetoric and presentation techniques. In addition, corporate business games incorporating company management ensure variety in the curriculum and train your management and decision-making abilities. Intercultural coaching equips you to act with assurance and confidence all over the world.

Modern Technology


Campus-wide wireless LAN access, power connection for all lecture theatre places, PC workplaces and beamers for mobile use provide the prerequisites for modern-day studying. You also profit from comprehensive IT Support, including punctual SMS notifications if course or room changes are made.

Excellent Service


You are the focus of all our efforts at CBS. Competent, friendly employees are available to help and advise you in the Admissions Office, Students Office, International Office, Examination Office, Career Services, Library and IT Support service facilities. They are here to answer all your questions concerning job applications, studying, the semester abroad, practical work placements and starting your career, media and IT at all times.

University Certificates


It is becoming increasingly important for applicants in the job market to be able to furnish proof of special and extra abilities which positively distinguish them from their competitors. Therefore, special training, for example with SPSS and SAP software, is a component of the CBS study programmes which is increasingly used by companies which operate internationally.



We regularly subject all our degree courses to external quality controls and accreditation. Here, both the logic of a degree course and its structure and the feasibility of studying it are regarded. At the same time, the international accreditation agency FIBAA has acknowledged, for example, the areas of economic proximity and practical relevance of CBS with excellent appraisal.

Officially Recognised Degrees


Due to our close corporate contacts, we know that our “Bachelor of Arts” and “Master of Arts” university qualifications enjoy high prestige in practice. This is also proven by the above-average job placement rate in interesting jobs for CBS graduates.

Building Career Bridges


From the first day onwards, you have the opportunity to discuss your career plans in individual consultation with the Career Services department – whether for planning industrial placements or as career coaching shortly before completion. We support you with the optimisation of your job application documents for domestic and foreign companies and prepare you for your job quest with training. By the way, many CBS students meet their future employer while still studying at CBS.
