CBS Cologne Business School GmbH
English and German-taught Business Programs for undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as MBAs.
CBS is a private university of applied sciences and was established in 1993. Currently, we have approximately 1900 students, over 450 of which are international students from all over the world. Each semester, CBS receives around 150-200 exchange students from its partner universities worldwide.
CBS offers a range of study programs on Bachelor, Master and MBA levels, most of which are fully taught in English. The CBS programs focus on International Business with different specialization areas such as Entrepreneurship, or Marketing Management. Further study programs are Strategic Management & Consulting, HRM & Leadership, Digital Transformation Management, Global Finance (MSc), Business Psychology as well as Tourism and Sustainability Management.
All CBS study programs are state-recognized and have been accredited through the German governmental Science Council, “Wissenschaftsrat”, as well as through the international IACBE accreditation and the FIBAA, which is the accreditation agency for Business and Economics studies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The CBS is proud of its very practical oriented education. A large part of our faculty has worked or is still working for different large or small companies, and is thus able to transfer knowledge from their work experience into the classroom. CBS has a wide range of contacts to companies in the Cologne region and beyond. Our students gain practical experience through various internships – an option that we offer to international students to CBS as well.
