The dual study programme at HSBA was the ideal basis to continue my career in one of the big four auditing companies. The university has a very dynamic character and I am happy to have been a part of it – three very significant years.

Study Organisation and Programme Structure

The dual programme integrates phases of theory at the university (on average 32 weeks a year) and practical phases of training in their training company (on average 20 weeks a year).

Students acquire practical business administration knowledge and have an opportunity to specialise in certain functions or sectors. Special attention is given to method skills throughout the programme. Business administration fundamentals are communicated in the first two years of study, and complemented by method modules and courses on language and law. In the second and third years of study, selected subjects are treated in depth (Marketing, Finance, Strategic Management, Controlling). The main content in the final year is a range of options (specialisation, electives), providing wider and deeper know-how and method skills.
