Achieve a double degree during your masters at ISM

Earn an International Double Degree - For your Master's or MBA

Students of all of ISM's consecutive full-time Master's as well as MBA programs have the opportunity to graduate with an international double degree / dual degree from the ISM and a partner university abroad. Having an international double master degree under your belt will not only deepen your study experience abroad, but also improve your international career options among multinational enterprises.

What does a Double Degree program mean?

If you opt for a double degree program, you will graduate with two degrees (double masters): a German master's degree and a second degree from an international partner university or institution, all while writting a single master thesis. Besides the possibility to graduate with a double Master's, starting with fall 2024 you can also get a double degree in the MBA full-time and part-time programs.

Is a double degree possible for the MBA?

In the MBA General Management program you can now also earn an international double degree. In addition to the MBA degree at ISM, you will earn a second, internationally recognized MBA degree at our new partner university - the City University of Seattle. You have to take a total of 8 courses there and then will receive the double degree. The courses can be completed entirely online, on campus or partly online/partly on-site. The duration of the double degree is usually 3 quarters, i.e. three quarters of a year.

Being a double masters graduate from two of the most renowned universities in Europe is a chance that should be grabbed while it is given. When applying at ISM, it was clear to me that a dual degree would be the one I would like to pursue, and my decision was taken on this prerequisite. Given my specialty (Luxury Fashion Management), the opportunity to pursue an academic Double Masters Degree at ISM combined with a Parisian university was a once-in-a-lifetime chance that I couldn’t miss.
