Dual studies

The degree programmes of IU Dual Studies offer a high level of practical learning through its weekly alternation between university and work place.

The dual bachelor degree programmes are offered in more than 28 cities around Germany. They cover the fields of finance, real estate, marketing, sustainable energy, production & logistics, tourism and healthcare.

With its dual study programmes IU meets the needs of an increasing numbers of young adults who want to combine theoretical knowledge with practical experience in a company.  And for those who are working, there is an increasing demand for further qualifications through suitable part-time programmes.

From the start, students are involved with operational processes and during their study programme are already prepared for their professional responsibilities in the future.

IU Dual Studies maintains an active network and works closely with numerous companies in each region where the study programme is offered:  They help potential students find their ideal partner for their practical experience and offer them with optimal practical relevance during the study programme.  Over 3000 companies have already chosen to collaborate with IU.
