LIM College’s newest international partner, EBC Hochschule, will put students right in the heart of Europe. EBC Hochschule is a private, fully accredited university of applied sciences dedicated to practice-oriented and international management degree programs, the most popular of which is the Bachelor of Arts in Fashion, Luxury and Retail Management. With prime locations in Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf, and Stuttgart, EBC – formerly “Euro Business College” – is part of one of Germany’s largest education enterprises with 25 years of experience in international management education.

Senior year classes at EBC will be taught in English, so LIM College students do not to be proficient in the German language – a barrier EBC purposely eliminated to enrich its campus communities with more international students. It also helps that EBC Hochschule’s location portfolio is unique among private colleges in Germany. “I am convinced foreign students will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience when choosing to spend a semester with us, and we certainly look forward to welcoming our first visiting students from the United States,” says Johann Stooss, Chancellor of EBC Hochschule.

The new partnership agreement also includes a provision for EBC Hochschule students to study at LIM College, as well as a potential faculty exchange. It is expected that students at both institutions will benefit greatly from this new transatlantic link in fashion management education.
