Bachelor and Master students of the University of Münster School of Business & Economics have the chance to acquire a double degree in cooperation with the renowned ICN Business School Nancy in France. Studying at the ICN is characterised by an international atmosphere and high practical relevance. Double degree courses offer the students the possibility to acquire two degrees in two countries within the standard period of study.

Students of double degree programmes normally receive ERASMUS funding for the entire year.

The fifth and sixth semesters include the BBA study and the bachelor’s thesis in Nancy. In this, either the international programme or the French-language programme can be chosen.

Double Master
