Which companies may be interested in dual study?
Dual study is ideal for companies looking for highly qualified and motivated employees to set them in good stead for the future. The companies that collaborate with Münster University of Applied Sciences in dual study programmes enable their apprentices to gain a university degree whilst working for them. The company benefits from this system in many ways.
Depending on the degree programme and the type of studies chosen, dual studies leading to a Bachelor degree at Münster University of Applied Sciences take between six and nine semesters. The enterprise is free to decide how it wishes to support students during this period, for instance by covering their tuition fees.
What advantages do the various dual study programmes offer the companies involved?
By combining theory and practice, companies gain highly qualified employees who have been trained well both professionally and academically. Thanks to their work experience, employees are already familiar with processes within the company, and can be deployed straight away. There is no need to give them initial skill adaption training, which is time-consuming and costly.
Students directly apply the knowledge they have gained at university to the company. And in turn, the university benefits from the knowledge and skills acquired on the job.
Shorter training periods:
Compared to taking an apprenticeship and then studying, the total time taken for dual study is considerably shorter. Graduates are younger and join the enterprise at an earlier stage.
Commitment to the company:
Companies give their apprentices the opportunity to pursue dual study. In exchange, they can contractually bind employees to the company for several years. The company then gains from the investment it has made in the employee. There is no need for personnel recruitment, which is time-consuming and costly.
