European Business School International University Schloss Reichartshausen

---Sidenote START---
The European Business School (EBS), International University Schloss Reichartshausen in Oestrich-Winkel, Germany, was founded in 1971. As a Business School the EBS claims to excel at combining theory and practice in teaching as well as in research. The university's activities focus on 3 core areas: undergraduate and postgraduate programs, executive education and research. The European Business School has the right to award doctorate and habilitations. The EBS is not part of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

Other European Business Schools

A few years ago, the EBS was part of a European network of private business schools (ebs). While some of the former member institutions continue to operate under the same name (for example, the European Business School London) and have since joined new alliances, the EBS is no longer affiliated with any of them.

A focus of education is set on personality development: every student has the option to receive several coaching sessions from successful business managers in each semester. Apart from their studies in business, economics and management, students participate in a studium universale that teaches important concepts of philosophy and ethics. The ebs also offers executive education and off-the-job training for leaders and future leaders in management.

Besides the Business School, four affiliated academies offer a number of Post-Graduate-Studies: the EBS Immobilienakademie (EBS Academy of Real Estate), the EBS Finanzakademie (EBS Academy of Finance), the EBS Gesundheitsakademie (EBS Academy of Health) and the EBS Management Academy.
