With more than 1400 students, EBS's goal is to provide enterprising people with academic knowledge, skills and values for its successful implementation. EBS offers degrees at Bachelor's, Master's as well as Doctoral levels.

The goal of EBS Helsinki Branch is to provide Finnish students with the possibility to study international business administration by way of session-based learning in English in the students' home country. EBS Helsinki is located in the modern and innovative Technopolis Ruoholahti business park.

To be a top-level internationally accredited community of lifelong learning and knowledge sharing. EBS uses and develops the most appropriate study methods and forms to achieve its students’ goals, based on its mission. EBS is a partner to public and private organisations in the development of new products, services and processes. EBS is a competence centre for developing the skills of its staff and teams and for enhancing their development-driven motivation. 


The operations of EBS are guided by the following principles:

  • ethics;
  • social responsibility;
  • sustainability.

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 organisations.
  • 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.

Estonian Business School’s credo

We must never forget that the paths people take are in our hands and that we can influence their choice of direction through education.

At the top of our list of priorities is the success of our students, our alumni and those who employ them. We strive to ensure that the majority of our alumni join the ranks of the country’s foremost managers and directors and that all of our graduates are gainfully employed.

A close second on our list of priorities is the success of our own employees. We strive to ensure that they enjoy a meaningful life of constant growth (both personal and professional), ample prosperity and satisfying working conditions. If things go awry in their lives, we give them our support.

Rounding out our podium of priorities is society. We strive to ensure that society develops as quickly as possible in every region in which we operate. By exporting education, we promote Estonia as a rapidly evolving nation boasting a wealth of culture. Our wish, and indeed our obligation, is to provide new opportunities to and otherwise help those weaker than ourselves.

The success of our school as a whole is of course our other main priority. We are convinced that this success will be ensured when our top three priorities are achieved. Every business needs to be profitable in order to survive, but profitability is also a means by which to achieve greater goals. It is like the air, the food and the water which sustain a living thing: it is not the meaning of life, but without it, there can be no life.
