Double degree

Why would you not consider to get a double degree?

It is a joint programme that involves your working in two different universities in parallel – the first one is your home institution, the second one is a university in a different country – and allows you to receive a diploma from each. A double dregree will be an important asset in your CV.

Let’s point out some of the benefits of a double degree:

  • It is a challenge that gives you the opportunity to have new academic experiences;
  • It increases your cultural and social background;
  • It creates an international business network;
  • It allows you to be part of an international community;
  • It allows you to sow the seeds of a brilliant international career.
