Study Abroad in Germany

Updated: Mar 17

Interested in spending a semester abroad? Learn more about Cologne Business School in Cologne, Germany!

An outstanding opportunity awaits business students at Cologne Business School (CBS) in Cologne, Germany. CBS has decades of educational experience and offers innovative curriculum crafted to help you succeed in today’s demanding business world. CBS features a rewarding and enjoyable learning environment where students regularly launch new initiatives to help improve the campus atmosphere, as well as their own personal and business skills. In addition, with the lively metropolis of Cologne (population over one million) at your fingertips, you will have many opportunities to take in more than 2,000 years of history and immerse yourself in Germany’s fourth largest city.


  • CBS has a 3.00 minimum GPA requirement.

  • Semester and year-long programs available. Fall Semester: Late August to mid-December. Spring Semester: late January to early June.

Course and Subject Offerings

  • Business Administration (Accounting, Economics, Finance, International Business, Law, Marketing, Management, QSO, Tourism)

  • German Language (While not required by CBS, we highly encourage students to take a German Language course while attending Cologne Business School. Although you could probably “get by” with English, it will enhance your experience while abroad if you are able to speak to more locals in German.)

  • Although CBS is a business school, other majors are welcome to apply.
