With effect from autumn 2011, IMC’s students of the master programmes - department business - are offered the possibility to acquire a double degree (Master in Leadership).
An agreement regarding this with the School of Business of Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden was completed.
In this context, it is mandatory to spend the third semester in Sweden. The Master thesis will be supervised by lecturers from both institutions and the oral examination will also be held in the presence of these in Krems.
Why go for a double degree?
The double degree programmes allow students to obtain an academic qualification at the IMC Krems and at one of its partner universities.
Double degree agreements have enabled the IMC Krems and its students to become part of an international network, strengthening intercultural awareness and improving graduates’ employability. Cooperation agreements between our University and partner institutions also promote lecturer mobility, the exchange of views on key issues, and joint assessment of student theses and examinations – all of which encourages an ongoing transfer of academic expertise between the participating universities.
Double degrees give students the chance to experience a different academic culture with all of its unique aspects, and acquire a qualification which opens up various opportunities on the local jobs market. That also means broadening their professional horizons and removing barriers on their chosen career path.
