A Rising Number of International Students Commence Their Studies at CBS

Press release, December 7th

The Cologne Business School (CBS) welcomed almost 100 new international students from all over the world to their Bachelor- and Master programs this year - the largest number so far since its foundation.

Most of the guest students who find their way into the CBS study at the numerous international partner institutions, and stay in Cologne for one or two terms. The students of Universitas Bina Nusantara in Jakarta, who joined the Bachelor programmes and earn their CBS degree after one year, form the largest group.

"Apart from the Indonesian students, this year there are also many students from Mexico, France, Spain, the U.S., Russia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and from the Netherlands", states Friederike Heuck, the coordinator for "incoming students" at the International Office.

The CBS is always eager to take good care of its international students: The International Office and the International Students Integration Program-Team (I'StiP) regularly organise weekend-trips, excursions or language-partner-programmes in order to make the guests feel more comfortable and welcome in Germany.

For the German CBS-students, on the other hand, this is a good opportunity to make international friends, or get ideas for their own study abroad term.

In addition, the Master programmes have become more and more international as well: Students from every corner of the globe, even from Jordan or Tanzania, commenced their studies at the CBS this year.

The CBS is a state-recognised and internationally oriented business school offering Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts business studies programmes with numerous specialisation options, whereby 7 of the 9 study courses are taught in English. All degree courses have been accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA).
