21st Century Liberal Arts Education

Through close student-lecturer contact and classes in relatively small groups, ECLS provides for a professional academic atmosphere to meet students’ individual needs in a truly international environment.

Permanent interaction is ensured so that students obtain a firm grasp of the course materials offered. In small groups (up to approximately 24 students) students are discussing issues, sharing ideas, testing theories and benefitting from our rigorous academic standards.

Faculty members are drawn from around the world, are highly qualified in their field(s) of expertise and combine a solid academic background and ample professional experience as business leaders, industrialists, entrepreneurs and/or consultants.

To prevent business theory from remaining abstract and inapplicable, most courses are based on the case method and provide students with a practical, hands-on problem-solving approach to contemporary business and management issues.

Students are taught in a pragmatic way with the use of simulation techniques, up-to-date case studies and the required theoretical background. They also learn to think strategically when making decisions, to empathize with their peers, to inspire team work and team building, and to contribute to the success of a project.

Thinking creatively and independently by questioning, rather than blindly accepting subject material is strongly encouraged. Throughout the academic year, students are regularly assessed through an ideal mix of individual and team projects, presentations, papers, mid-terms and final exams so that their progress can be closely monitored.

This highly practical skills and knowledge based approach to learning involves the continuing monitoring and adaptation of courses to the demands of the global marketplace with the assistance of an Academic Council composed of prominent personalities from the business community.
