Anyone who establishes a company or enters a newly founded one needs comprehensive business administration skills. The prerequisite for taking up the IB - Entrepreneurship program from CBS International Business School is a first academic degree in business economics. This is because we build upon your existing expertise and impart on you in-depth contents, which you should expect from a modern, challenging Master’s Degree. From you, we expect advanced English skills.
Due to the CBS‘ membership in the founder network cologne (hgnc), you have the possibility to take part in various start-up seminars and workshops. How to create a business plan and what do the financing possibilities look like? You can get answers to these questions and many more during the seminars. The hgnc’s extensive network of important economic partners is a big support as well: You receive helpful tipps and are able to connect with other entrepreneurs.
You want to get involved in activities outside the regular lectures and you are interested in the start-up industry? Or you already have an idea for a business project? In this case, the student initiative Entrepreneur Club is just right for you. During the weekly meetings aspiring founders can work on their ideas, exchange views with the other participants and apply their acquired knowledge into practice. In the initiative you get coached by professors as well as CBS alumni, who can tell you about their experiences in establishing their own business.
In addition to state recognition and institutional accreditation by the German Science Council, the study programmes of the CBS International Business School are regularly checked by the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation) for content, topicality and feasibility of study.
