CBS Mission: ‘Creating tomorrow’

With around 150 employees, it is one of the top addresses among private business schools in Germany and was once again awarded the title ‘Germany's best private business school’ in the 2019 university ranking of the magazine ‘WirtschaftsWoche’. It also maintains a large network with more than 120 partner universities and numerous companies around the world.
CBS study programmes: International – practical – personal
Its vocational and training-accompanying, dual, and full-time study programmes are characterised by teaching contents with international, practical and sustainable relevance: With the help of business projects, guest lectures and a mostly obligatory semester abroad, CBS students gather important competencies for their career entry in internationally active companies. The principle of responsible management is one of the principles of the university and is taught by the scientists of the Center for Advanced Sustainable Management (CASM) at the CBS International Business School in all study programmes.
