Dual Study Programme in International Management

Dual degree programmes in International Management at private universities are rare: currently, hardly more than four dual degree programmes are offered at universities. The advantage of dual studies is, of course, the work experience that students gain during their studies. In some cases, students do not pay tuition fees, which are paid by the company providing the training.

The dual study programme International Business at NORDAKADEMIE, for example, lasts 7 semesters. Students work 13 weeks per semester in the training company, and lectures and seminars take place 10 weeks per semester. The tuition fees are paid by the training company; the company also pays a training allowance.
