ESMT Berlin has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) by the European Commission.

The ECHE is the prerequisite for participation in the Erasmus+ program of the EU. With an overall budget of €14.7 billion, the program supports people in Europe financially in studying, training, and gaining experience abroad.

ESMT students will be able to apply for living cost stipends for exchange semesters at partner institutions and internships in the Erasmus+ countries, once the mobility program is set up. In addition to promoting student exchange, ESMT also plans to develop knowledge alliances within the Erasmus+ framework, strengthening its partnerships with higher education institutions across the continent.
