We provide basic and advanced business knowledge, understanding, and methodologies with an international focus in the fields of management, marketing, accounting, controlling, finance, human resource management, and economics, along with quantitative methods (business mathematics and statistics), information systems and law.
Communication skills training includes two foreign languages, intercultural competence, public speaking and presentation techniques. Leadership skills and students’ interpersonal skills are developed in curricular and extracurricular activities, as well as in team projects.
The balance between theory and practice is ensured by two internships (preferably international), business projects, extensive research, and the business and leadership background of the professors.
Last but not least, maintaining an international atmosphere is a key priority, which is ensured by our international student body; up to 50% of our students come from abroad. Professors and lecturers have an international business and personal background.
Guest lecturers from abroad are frequently invited.
First to the third semester: foundation courses – introduction to business, business communication, business methods and law, marketing, finance, and human resource management
Fourth semester: internship semester – business practice module (internship and practical business studies)
Fifth semester: international semester at one of more than 60 partner universities
Sixth semester: with electives – advanced business studies with the possibility to develop a profile in marketing, strategy, finance, leadership, digital business or economics
Seventh semester: with electives and thesis
Students can also choose the “Fast Track” option:
During the third semester, students can decide to combine the BSc degree with a Master’s degree – a BSc degree from Reutlingen University and MBA/Master’s degree from a partner university. In this case, the educational organization changes as follows:
Fifth semester: with electives – advanced business studies with the possibility to develop a profile in marketing, strategy, finance, leadership, digital business or economics.
Sixth semester: with electives and thesis
Seventh to the eighth semester: graduate business studies at one of the international graduate partner universities
Students can thereby obtain a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in only eight semesters.
Academic admission requirements include a German university entrance qualification or a foreign university entrance qualification equivalent to the German university entrance qualification.
Very good command of English is also required.
Applicants must provide proof of fluent English language skills (e.g., TOEFL, Cambridge Certificate, IELTS, TOEIC, PTEA, Unicert II, residence in an English-speaking country for at least five years or school/university education in English certified by your school/university).
SB Business School has more than 40 years of experience in teaching applied international management and business engineering and is considered to be one of Germany’s leading public business schools. Regularly ranked at the top of numerous university league tables, the school’s close cooperation with companies and its international partner universities contribute to ESB’s outstanding ability to educate the next generation of highly qualified, international managers.
Internationality and a balance of theory and practice are crucial cornerstones of our forward-looking and interdisciplinary approach. Semesters abroad as well as foreign and national internships are mandatory and are integral parts of our programs. Workshops, seminars, and dissertations are written in conjunction with businesses, our own company fairs, case studies, professors with management experience, guest lectures, or excursions to renowned companies all guarantee a high practical orientation of our programs. Besides the required first foreign language module in Business English, students can take other business language modules. The language lecturers are generally native speakers.
