The Dual Studies Track is a comprehensive cooperative educational concept. Students work and study at the same time. It is a reaction to two challenges: How to raise employability of university graduates and how to provide the labor market with qualified employees who possess sound skills in practice and theory.
In these programs, academic and vocational training are integrated and take place at two locations: A university and a company. Content of the academic part is exactly the same concerning the level and quality of the taught courses and roughly the same concerning the quantity of academic courses. In addition, work in a partner company. What they do there is aligned with their academic studies - students apply their knowledge right away and become familiar with the real life work environment already during the program.
Currently we are running four Dual Studies Tracks in ten Bachelor Degree Programs. Due to the future strategy of GJU it is planned to enroll Dual Studies Tracks to all Major Bachelor and Master Programs.
