New dual degree programmes at the UE: Success concept for SMEs and career booster for students

The University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) will further expand its range of dual study programmes at its locations in Berlin, Hamburg, Iserlohn, the Innovation Hub and Hanover for the winter semester 2022/23.

In addition to the existing Business & Taxes and Business & E-Commerce courses, Business Informatics & Data Science and Digital Media & Marketing are on the schedule for the winter semester 2022/23. Additonal dual degree courses such as Sport and Event Management and Software Engineering are planned for the winter semester 2022/ 2023.

Horst Friedrich Krause, Director of Corporate Partnerships at UE, is convinced of the future viability of the courses: “The dual course of study at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences offers the perfect opportunity for SMEs, in particular, to attract talent to the region and also to retain it in the long term, because it is precisely these young professionals that the world market leaders from the South Westphalia region, for example, are looking for.”

85% of students stay with the company – 60,000 practical partners already use the dual study program

More than 60,000 companies across Germany have now decided to integrate the dual study programme into their human resources management. More than 190,000 students are studying in 1,600-degree programmes, and the number of students and practice partners has risen by double digits in the last five years. Almost 85 % of dual students stay with the company where they complete their dual studies, and nearly 90 % find a permanent job within 6 months of graduation. Demand for dual study programmes and thus for an even closer link between theory and practice is rising steadily.

The labor market in Germany is changing

Another important reason for the success of dual study programmes: The biggest change in the German labor market since World War II: the baby boomer generation is retiring. Dual students cannot immediately replace the expertise of this generation, but the practical experience gained during their studies makes it much easier to start a career.
