European Business School London (EBS London) is a private Business School in Regent's Park in Central London. It is UK's oldest private business school and a constituent school of Regent's University London.[1][2]

EBS London offers a wide range of courses in the field of International Business Management and has a strong focus on Banking and Finance, which is also reflected by the fact that a third of its graduates pursue a career in that field.[3] Besides its focus on teaching, the university has a long-standing commitment to research and offers research degrees such as Mphil and PhD degrees.[4]

Around 900 students from over 85 nationalities make the faculty highly international. It also has as strong focus on languages, with 70% of its graduates being fluent in at least four languages. EBS has a strong representation of all nations especially Russian, Spanish, Italian and French.[5][6]

History[edit]

Founded in 1979, European Business School was an international institution with campuses in London, Paris, Frankfurt (Oestrich-Winkel) and Milan which had a pioneering influence on the European model of education. In 1985, though still co-operating and exchanging students, the EBS schools became independent. Each school kept the EBS name but added the city name after. European Business School London (EBSL), EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht and European Business School Paris are the remaining European Business Schools. EBS London is now the business faculty of Regent's University London and as such still affiliated with EBS Paris.[7]

Programmes[edit]

Core of the undergraduate programme in the management field are the BA (hons) degrees in Global Management and International Business. Further undergraduate courses at the business faculty include a BA (hons) in International Events Management.

Master's level courses are available in the fields of general management, banking and finance, entrepreneurship and marketing, including a full-time MBA in International Business.[8]

MBA Programme[edit]

The MBA in International Business is a 12-month full-time programme. The EBS London MBA has been validated by the EQUIS and AACSB accredited Open University as associated organisation.[9]
