EU Business School Academic

Academic Code

All of our courses are taught in English. Our programs are student-oriented, flexible and personalized. We use a combination of classroom theory and hands-on experiential learning that draws on both the American business education model and European learning methodologies. EU’s pragmatic approach to business education prepares students for careers in today’s rapidly evolving and globalized business world.


Students must attend all courses for which they are registered. If illness prevents a student from attending class, they should notify the administration department and make arrangements to complete any missed assignments.

A medical certificate must be presented to the academic dean for absences longer than three days. Anyone who stops attending a course without notifying EU Business School or officially withdrawing will receive a failing grade.

Two or more unexcused absences may lead to a course grade reduction.

Course Load

Program course load is measured in credit hours. Credit hours are directly proportional to classroom hours. For example, a three-hour per week class equals three credit hours. In addition, a preparation time of one to one-and-a-half hours for each credit hour is assumed.

Graduation Requirements

Bachelor’s programs

In order to receive a bachelor’s degree, students must complete the program with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. In addition, students at EU Business School must present and defend a dissertation as well as two final case studies (one marketing case and one related to the student’s major).

Master's/MBA programs

In order to receive their MBA or master's degree, students must complete each term, and the overall program, with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. In addition, students at EU Business School must present and defend a final dissertation and complete the EU Research and Dissertation seminars (to be taken during two of the three terms).


EU awards the following academic honors:

    cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.20-3.49;

    magna cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.50-3.79;

    summa cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.8 and above.

Accomplishing academic honors represents outstanding work within the requirements of a given major or specialization. Excellence in these areas is measured by overall GPA, performance in designated gateway courses within a major and completion of a dissertation.

Academic honesty

Academic honesty is a fundamental value in education. EU Business School enforces a strict academic ethics code to which all students must adhere to. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: plagiarism, attempted theft of academic records or examinations and alteration of grades. Any of these offenses will result in automatic failure of the course and/or expulsion from EU.
