Your practice-oriented studies at CBS in Germany: You want to apply your business knowledge directly in practice, learn by doing, and build up a career network early on? Get to know the practice-oriented studies at the CBS!
Business studies introduce you to the world of management (Bachelor's) or make you an expert in your field (Master, MBA). In addition to theoretical approaches, models, and methodological knowledge, one thing is particularly important to all lecturers at CBS: Linking theory and practice. For this reason, all CBS study programmes have a practical focus: A compulsory internship provides the necessary insights into everyday working life and can set the course for your career entry. In Business Projects and Business Simulation Games, you learn to apply methods to concrete company issues and strengthen your analytical skills.
