Your benefits as a dual practice partner
Highly qualified applicants
We only match students who are motivated and whose hard and soft skills are a perfect fit for your company and job profile.
More time & resources
Through our partnership, you receive new junior staff without having to worry about the entire recruiting process - and have more time for your core business.
From the start, you keep the students closely tied to your company, help shape them from the start of their careers, and take them on after graduation without any training periods.
Partner at eye level
A personal contact person will support you at all times and answer any questions you may have about innovation and employee retention - with our knowledge gained from more than 20 years of teaching.
Through our international network of cooperation partners, partner universities, students and alumni, you will easily establish additional valuable contacts.
Impact & room for ideas
We contribute equally to the success of young talent. That's why we work closely with you on areas including the requirements, content and practical phases of the dual study programme.
Study model and investment
We want our students to experience as much as possible from working in the real world. That's why all our dual degree programmes involve regular alternation between theory and practice, mostly in the split-week model:
Students work at your company three days a week for a total of about 20 hours.
For about 27 weeks per year in total.
Over a study period of 3, 3.5 or 4 years, depending on the degree programme.
All programmes start every year in the winter semester and some in the summer semester.
In the dual study programme BA Hotel Management we use the block model. You can find more details about it here.
Your investment: As a UE practice partner, you cover the tuition fees from €495 per month, which you can deduct for tax purposes as operating costs. You decide for yourself whether or not you will pay the students any additional compensation.
