12 good reasons for EBC*L

1. EBC*L - Practice-oriented and clearly defined

First of all, we want to let the very famous German consumerism organization Stiftung Warentest (consumers research and testing), that examined and compared different business economy courses in two of its issues (6/2010 and 11/2010), come to word: "Whether it is the founder of a new business who is missing business economy know-how or an attorney that needs to understand the annual accounts of the adversary - the European Business Competence License is the ideal thematic introduction. The EBC*L is also expedient for all other non-business people that require an internationally recognised certificate on short notice. Requirements, costs and time expenditure are comparatively low

"The content and didactics of the preparatory European Business Competence License (EBC*L) courses were more convincing than the majority of other basic business economy courses that were tested. Their notable advantage: The content that needs to be conveyed by the instructors is clearly defined in the learning target catalogue of the EBC*L."

"The test demonstrates: basic business economy courses often do not provide the promised insights. EBC*L courses on the other hand, provide clearly defined and practice-oriented contents ..."

2. EBC*L - Seal of quality and guarantee of acquirement of practical knowledge

The search for an education in business economy in Google results in more than 10 000 hits. Which one is the right one to choose? The EBC*L specifically guarantees that the practically required aspects of business economy knowledge are met. Amongst other reasons, this is guaranteed by the learning target catalogue, which was developed in cooperation with companies and professionals from the field.

The learning target catalogue as well as sample tests are easily accessible. Hence, you are not buying the proverbial pig in a poke and are also not subjected to the thematic preferences of the instructors, but are guaranteed, in advance, exactly which business economic themes and terms will be discussed.

All participants are informed of the content and the examining system a priori. The challenging but fair exam (no trick-questions) can be prepared for in a precise manner.

3. EBC*L - A recognised certificate for low costs in comparatively short preparation time

The costs and the time expenditure for the EBC*L are comparatively low and often constitute merely a fraction of those required for other business economy courses. Additionally, several local and international subsidies may reduce the costs.

4. EBC*L - Guaranteed quality through accreditation

Guaranteed quality through accredited educational institutions and quality assurance measures

EBC*L preparatory courses and exams can be attended in all EBC*L countries at the accredited EBC*L examination centres. These centres have committed themselves to strict quality standards and also guarantee targeted preparation. Surely, there is also an EBC*L examination centre close to you.

5. EBC*L - The certificate increases job and career opportunities

According to the most recent Staufenbiel-study, 75% of all businesses expect entrepreneurial thinking and business economy know-how from their key personnel. Other studies, however, show that even amongst those with secondary education, only a small percentage is in command of basic business economy know-how. This exemplifies that business economy understanding and knowledge, as well as credible confirmation of these skills, is crucial for a competitive advantage.

6. EBC*L - Business economy competence for every step in your career

The flexible level-system enables the specific business economy competence for every step in a career

The EBC*L covers the entire spectrum of business economy practice-relevant know-how, from core knowledge in business economy (Level A) over planning competence (Level B) up to leadership competence (Level C).

7. EBC*L - Training concepts for modern learning

Training material and teaching concepts are developed with up-to-date and progressive learning psychological insights which guarantees optimised learning success in a short period of time and includes award-winning E-Learning and Blended-Learning programmes.

8. EBC*L - Competence in Business English

The EBC*L can also, in compliance with certain conditions, be passed in English - or any of the other 24 languages it is translated into.

In comparison to the business English courses usually offered, the EBC*L provides not just general communication skills but guarantees a profound understanding of the actual business economy terminology in a foreign language.

9. EBC*L - Indispensable management knowledge for running businesses and start-ups

An EBC*L certificate supports entrepreneurs and founders of new businesses in better understanding their own business and increases their chances for success

Two thirds of all businesses slip into insolvency for reasons of poor business economy decision-making and insufficient planning. The EBC*L covers the necessary business economy knowledge to a large extent. The official confirmation of these skills and competences will enhance the chances of receiving grants and financial support from banks and funding commissions.

10. EBC*L - Certification of educational successes for enterprises and funding commissions

Businesses can offer a recognised and hence motivating educational measure that demands very little time and costs. Business economy is, therefore, no longer limited to a small elite in a business. Furthermore, the EBC*L provides evidence of learning successes with the exam, making a perfect tool for training evaluation.

The exam assures funding agencies that participants did not just visit a seminar but definitely learnt something.

11. EBC*L - Quality assurance of educational measures

Educational institutions, schools and universities may also measure the quality of their educational measures and use the EBC*L certification system as a proven record for their training success.
