Double Degree Program


*** Informationsveranstaltung Double-Degrees ***


For students in the Master of Business Administration, the faculty offers double degree programmes with the reputed universities Audencia Business School and School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana (SEB LU).

The double degree programmes are aimed at students with a minimum of good academic performance. A particular willingness to achieve and suitability for the requirements of an international double degree programme should also be evident.

Audencia Business School and SEB LU are among the best European business schools. Both universities have the AACSB accreditation. Audencia Business School also holds the EQUIS and AMBA international accreditations, which are essential for business schools, making it one of the 1% of business schools worldwide that are Triple Crown accredited.

With the completion of the Double Degree Programme, Master's students of Business and Economics receive two Master's degrees in the scheduled period of study. The first academic year begins at RWTH Aachen University (semesters I & II) and continues in the second academic year (semesters III & IV) at the partner university. Due to the different academic calendars, the start of the semester at the partner universities differs from that at RWTH Aachen University.
