What is the course all about?

The business world is becoming increasingly complex, while the importance of multinational companies continues to grow. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is therefore offering the “International Business binational” work-study degree programme in English. This is a double-degree programme of the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University Mannheim (DHBW) in cooperation with its partner Kozminski University in Warsaw. You will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts by the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University Mannheim after three years as well as a Bachelor’s degree (Licencjat) from the Komzinski University Warsaw. You will complete the practical phases primarily at our site in Hannover and at our international sites in Poland.

This dual degree will prepare you optimally for our internationally focused company. Through the International Business binational course of study you will acquire comprehensive specialist knowledge of business administration, especially from an international perspective. Acquisition of intercultural and social competence also plays an important role, which is why you will acquire extensive language skills during your studies – and can also gain international practical experience.
