Master's Programmes



When EBS was founded in 1988, it was the first institution in Estonia to introduce diploma business education. Since business administration did not exist in soviet universities, there was no teaching tradition, no faculty and no textbooks: a difficult starting position. 


With more than 1500 students and international faculty, EBS’s goal is to provide enterprising people with academic knowledge, skills and values for its successful implementation. EBS teaches entrepreneurship and business administration in a practical manner at Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels.


The aim of research at EBS is to contribute to the international knowledge base of management and create conditions for its introduction in business and public institutions, but also improve training for the management of such organizations.

The sub-topics for research are:

  • Development of Organisations and Management of Change
  • Innovative Entrepreneurship and Knowledge Transfer in International Networks
  • Development of Public Administration Organizations and their Legal Framework. Application of Experience in New Democracies
  • Institutional Economics
  • Social Responsibility and Ethical Values of Organizations
  • Intelligent IT Systems in Public and Private Organizations


The Career Centre at the Estonian Business School was founded in early 2000 within EBS Student Government. The service has been focused on final-year students as well as undergraduates, basically, on all those who want to prepare for the job market in good time.
