The English-Language Bachelor's Programme at CBS

Discover the future of business studies

Anyone who studies today as they did yesterday will be left behind tomorrow. A qualification for the labour market of the future cannot be based on the learning experiences of the past. CBS has radically rethought its business degree programme and is launching the next generation of business bachelor's degrees on the education market.

The rules of the game in business have changed - have business studies also changed?

Entrepreneurial success has changed fundamentally in recent decades.

Value and growth no longer result primarily from production processes but from the art of marketing and the ability to create sustainable customer relationships. As a result, functions such as Marketing & Sales have moved from an isolated department to the centre of entrepreneurial thinking. This change in thinking also fundamentally impacts what specialists and managers of the future will be able to do and how they need to understand business interrelationships.

So, what is the problem? Conventional business studies courses do not take these changing requirements into account and remain too rigidly theoretical to qualify students for the dynamic labour market of our time.

Ensuring your qualification meets the requirements of tomorrow's labour market

Studying with yesterday's system is no longer suitable for an international career in tomorrow's business world. CBS International Business School is radically turning business studies on its head and is offering you the next-generation business degree programme.

As a result, we consistently qualify you for the skills you need to understand the entrepreneurial success processes of today and actively shape those of tomorrow.

Studying at CBS: learning real business practice instead of cramming on business theory

We have developed the next-generation business degree programme for you. To this end, the English-language bachelor's programme at CBS has been completely redesigned.

We are breaking with traditional teaching practices and offering you an application-orientated qualification that is consistently based on modern business models and principles of our time.

Anything irrelevant to business practice and your career path to the top has been removed from the teaching concept. This gives you more room to focus on future-oriented electives and innovative skills training to create a convincing qualification profile for your desired career.

How we qualify you for the labour market of tomorrow

The foundation classes are at the heart of your curriculum. These courses map the business world from a current business model and transform it into well-founded and innovative essential qualifications for the future labour market. Here, you will acquire all the necessary skills to understand and actively shape modern entrepreneurial success processes. And so that you can also make a global impact in your dream job, a semester abroad is an integral part of your studies. For this special academic experience, you have a choice of over 160 partner universities worldwide

This newly designed core competency set significantly differs from conventional business studies programmes. It provides a state-of-the-art qualification to make your mark and establish yourself in tomorrow's business world.

Over the course of your studies, you will develop additional specialist expertise and skill profiles around this core profile, which will effectively advance you and your career.
