Estonian Business School

Estonian Business School

The Estonian Business School (EBS) is the oldest private business school in the Baltics, founded in 1988. As a business school with university standing, EBS offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level programmes in the business and administration study programme group.

EBS has two missions. First, to provide students with the necessary knowledge, contact base, and practical experience to set and reach their career-related, financial, and life goals. Second, to help organizations achieve their goals through human resources engaged in lifelong learning and applying the knowledge obtained in EBS. The long-term vision of EBS is to belong to the top ranked European business schools with an internationally recognized accreditation (EQUIS) and to be an opinion leader in the field of business and management in Estonia.

Concerning the teaching and research activities, EBS relies on a high-quality network of contacts and partnerships with business schools, the business community, and the public sector, both within Estonia as well as abroad. An integral part of the strategy of EBS is providing an international learning experience. As the most international university in Estonia, we knowingly and strategically aim to increase the share of international staff and its mobility, to strengthen co-operation with academic and corporate partners, and to enhance student mobility. With this aim, EBS has established partnerships with 70 universities in 30 countries.

The Estonian Business School was the first university in Estonia to establish a subsidiary in Finland in 2011. The EBS Helsinki Branch began by offering an international business administration bachelor’s programme, and since the academic year 2015-16, it also offers a masters programme in international business administration with a specialization in organisational change and leadership.

Core values of EBS:

• Independence. EBS values mobility, flexibility, experimentation, and partner selection based on its mission and vision. This is best achieved under the status of an independent, profitably operating university.

• Cooperation. EBS values new knowledge created through cooperation and acts as a partner to society and businesses through its employees, students and alumni.

• Competence. EBS regards competence as a decisive prerequisite for development and therefore engages in the development and communication of the knowledge that in the long term will be essential to society and organizations.

• Creativity and inquisitiveness. EBS appreciates creativity and inquisitiveness as drivers of development. Educative failures are part of the development process.

• Profitability. profit is as important for a company as water is to a plant. Profit successfully amplifies the results of work done, encourages followers and provides resources for investments and experiments. EBS does not distribute its profits, but invests them in its development and reserves.
