Career Service & Corporate Relations support you on your way to your dream career

Those who take up a practice-oriented study at a renowned business school like CBS usually do so for a good reason: to facilitate their career. If you look at the career paths of successful people, being lucky and the fortunate coinciding with random events will certainly come into play for some. But experience shows that planning is the key to success. We support you along the way – on the one hand through the contents of the courses but also outside the lectures. A prime example of this is the Career Service department at CBS International Business School. Our colleagues support you in coming up with career ideas and then steering your career in the right direction – right from the start. To this end, we network with companies and have a CBS-exclusive internship and job vacancies exchange.

The choice of study programme depends not only on the appropriate subject and the desired specialisation but also on the place of study. As a CBS student, you will have to choose where you will live, learn, and work in the next few years.
