CBS International Business School

The CBS International Business School (CBS), founded in 1993, is one of the best private business schools in Germany. With its specialisation in business studies according to international standards, it attracts around 1,900 students from 75 nations. Its campuses in Cologne, Mainz and Potsdam offer business management study programmes of equivalent, certified quality and are part of the Stuttgart Klett Group. In 2018, the CBS International Business School was the only university in Germany to be awarded the accreditation “International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE)”.

Our practice-oriented educational concept is based on a high understanding of quality and scientific competence in research and teaching. Ethical issues as well as theories of sustainable management can be found in all study programmes at the CBS International Business School. The responsibility for education, innovation and research and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in all areas of research and teaching, as well as the university business, characterise our university and form the foundation of our mission statement.

Since 2015, the school’s Center for Advanced Sustainable Management (CASM) coordinates all sustainability-related activities as well as strengthens (inter)national partnerships in the field of sustainability.
