About the Programme

This CBS international business program addresses students who are interested in studying in a practice-oriented school and who seek to work in the globalised business world of the 21st century. Accordingly, we aim to recruit students who are highly motivated, self-confident achievers who are ready to take up the challenges of working in a highly international setting and who, in addition, aspire to make a leadership contribution to the globalised industries in which they will find employment, as well as to their local communities.

The CBS offers an international business program that allows you to specialise in four different areas. With Cologne being an important town in Germany's tourism industry, as well as the home of many media companies and internationally active companies, we provide specialisation possibilities in four different directions, such as:


During the first semesters of their studies, all students will follow a common track of introductory business courses. We then teach you the basics of business administration and accounting, organisation and management, marketing, economics and other fundamental business courses. In addition, all students participate in training aimed to enhance their social and analytical skills, as well as intensive language training. Students then proceed to follow the specialisation track of their choice.

The CBS has been successful because we offer a highly practice- oriented program and approach to teaching and learning in which you study in small groups. Our courses focus on the real world of international business, the actual world in which you will be working after graduation. Our links to a wide range of large companies and (international) organizations keep our courses pertinent and up-to-date. The presence of an outstanding body of international faculty ensures that students receive guidance in an internationally stimulating environment.

The specialisations provide the potential for a wide range of career possibilities, be it in various branches of the consulting industry, management, international trade, the ICT sector or even in public service. We take great pride in the fact that our graduates are highly valued by their employers. Many of our students have also become engaged in or took the initiative in new startups. Students who graduate at the Cologne Business School receive a BA degree in international business. We also offer the possibility to obtain second BA degree within 6 months after graduation from one of our foreign partner schools.
