Leverage the work experience advantage

The dual study model has proven to be extremely successful – as a perfect blend of theoretical studies and practical experience. In Germany dual programmes have delivered 97% employability for graduates and have shown a 500% growth rate in the past 8 years. Much of this success rests on the high standards we set for our faculty, our active-learning approach and curricula with practical relevance, as well as consistent corporate feedback from our corporate network.

If you prefer, you can of course also find your partner for the practical employment on your own – worldwide.

Please talk to your company about a possible assumption of the tuition fees.
