Admission Requirements

Undergraduate programs: B.A. International Business Management (Englisch track)

This page focuses on international students and entirely in English taught programs, so if you wish to apply for a German taught program and/or have a German leaving certificate of secondary school (Abitur/Fachabitur or other HZB) please turn to our national admission pages.

For international students outside of Europe entering German higher education on an undergraduate level is often not so easy. Please check here, if you are eligible for direct admission.

You are eligible? Congratulations – we would like to meet you!

The application is fairly simple – please fill in the application form and send it with following documents:

  • secondary school leaving certificate (and additional documents according to the direct admission database)
  • proof of language competency, e.g.:

    • TOEFL (min. 87)
    • First Certificate in English (FCE)
    • The TOIEC (min. 605)
    • IELTS (min. 6.0)
    • equivalent internationally recognized certificate confirming at least a level B2 of the CERFL
  • letter of Motivation
  • CV
  • if possible: references (from teachers, professors, prior work experiences)

Send them via email to international-admissionsebc-hochschule.de and to uni-assist.

Uni assist controls the legitimacy of your documents and your eligibility to enter the German higher education system. This process takes about six weeks. Since we want to speed up things, we will do a fast pre-check of your documents and proceed already with the application process.

Given that the pre-check is positive, we will invite you to our »EBC entrance assessment«. The assessment consists of two parts – a test and an interview. Both can be done at every EBC Campus in Germany. However, if you are not able to travel to one of our campuses, we will accept a TestAS-result (min. 90 points) as equivalent to our test and a Skype interview as alternative to our interview.

Graduate programs: M.A. International Management (English track)

The application procedure is similar easy as the process for our undergraduate programs. Please hand in

If you have successfully completed your Bachelor’s degree or Diplom at a university with a background in economic science you do not need any additional business administration qualifications for admission. Rather you will be admitted to the Master’s degree course following the selection process. If you only have a limited business administration foundation or none at all, you will be required to furnish proof thereof before beginning the course of studies.

There are no additional special requirements in terms of prior education. The Master’s degree course is open equally to applicants with professional experience.

Given that the pre-check is positive, we will invite you to our “EBC entrance assessment”.

EBC Hochschule determines a student’s aptitude for the course in question via a selection process, in particular by a personal interview in which the applicant's motivation and suitability are assessed. If it is not possible for you to interview in person, we will arrange an interview via Skype extra for you.
