Munich Business School: Innovative - Responsible - Globally Minded
Munich Business School was founded in 1991 by the European Business Schools International (ebsi) London, Paris, Madrid and Milan. The goal of the initiators: The private business school - at that time still under the name Europäische Betriebswirtschafts-Akademie (eba) - is to establish new benchmarks for practical orientation and internationality for business education in the economic center of Southern Germany. In 1999, the university became the first private university in Bavaria to receive state accreditation for its International Business curriculum by the Bavarian Ministry of Education and Culture, Science and the Arts. In 2003, the university was renamed Munich Business School, and at the same time the Bachelor International Business program was introduced.
The full-time Master International Business program followed in 2004, and just one year later the first MBA program was introduced as a 24-month part-time program: MBA General Management. In the following years, MBS continually expanded its offerings, including contemporary study focuses for the Bachelor and Master programs, the option to study the programs in English as well as Executive Education seminars and courses for professional development at an academic level. In 2010, MBS was the first private university in Bavaria to receive the unlimited state accreditation as well as the institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities. Further study programs were introduced in 2011 (Master Sports Business and Communication) and 2013 (MBA as full-time study program). In cooperation with Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), Munich Business School extended its offer in 2014 with the DBA Doctor of Business Administration program and received re-accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities in 2015. Since 2019, MBS offers two new Master programs: Master Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Master International Marketing and Brand Management.
