Study program at a cooperative university

In a study program at a cooperative university, the theoretical and practical phases are closely linked. This means that you attend the university for three months at a time and then put what you have learned into practice straight afterward. For three years, you alternate in this way between university and our company, until finally earning your degree.

Dual study program

By the end of your studies, you’ll have not one but two qualifications to show for it. While working toward your bachelor's degree, you’ll also complete classic vocational training at the same time and therefore also gain a recognized qualification from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK). In three to four and a half years, you will be fully up to date in both theory and practice, and with your two qualifications under your belt, you will have an ideal foundation to take on your first position of responsibility.

Applied degree program

This study model is fairly self-explanatory: Essentially, it is a completely normal bachelor’s degree. However, the theoretical knowledge is supplemented with practical phases that are tailored to the course content. These include practical semesters as well as various internships during the semester breaks. Finally, you will complete your bachelor's thesis with us.
