A degree is only valuable if it is generally recognised. We ensure this threefold. Firstly, through state accreditation: CBS International Business School is a private university state-recognised by the German Science Council and the Ministry of Science of North Rhine-Westphalia. Secondly, through the regular accreditation of all courses by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation) for content, topicality, and studyability. FIBAA examines the courses on behalf of the Accreditation Council of the Federal Republic. Thirdly, through—successful—participation in rankings, such as the renowned CHE ranking (known from the ZEIT Studienführer) or the university ranking of the Wirtschaftswoche.
Note: If you do not meet the requirements, you might still be considered for admission.
