SIBE was founded in 1993 as »Steinbeis Academy for Economic Development« by Werner G. Faix in connection with the Steinbeis Institute for Economic Development and in1998 it became »School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE)« within the Steinbeis University Berlin (SUB) as an independent part of the SUB.
Within the framework of the EBC at SIBE, students are asked to apply the theory they have learned and consolidated in (self-)study to actions in (business) reality, and to make the theory tangible (knowledge application). In project studies and presentations, students reflect throughout the duration of their Master’s degree on the real world projects they implement. At the same time, the students also reflect on their own individual competency development – and thus on their personal development.
Both in our teaching as well as our research, SIBE deliberately focuses on the primary areas of leadership, personal qualities and innovation as well as those areas of tension arising from the combination of these factors.
