Building on a strong history of Erasmus student exchange at the undergraduate level, the University of Warwick and University of Konstanz have created a Double Masters programme. This collaborative programme combines the theoretical-analytical approach characteristic of PAIS with the analytical-practical approach characteristic of the Politics and Public Administration (PolVer) department at Konstanz.
The Double Degree is based on the 2-year MA in Politics and Public Administration programme at Konstanz and any of the 1-year MAs taught in PAIS (except Research in Politics and International Studies). The year spent in PAIS replaces one year of study at Konstanz, making the total normal length of this programme 24 months. All of the core and a wide range of optional courses at Konstanz will be taught in English, so while knowing German is desirable, it is not essential to undertaking this programme of study.
By taking this Double Degree, you will benefit from studying your subject from two different yet compatible perspectives in two of the top Political Science departments in Europe. Studying in two different countries is inherently beneficial in developing personal skills and experience as well, not to mention enhancing your adaptability to new situations. Furthermore, you will be able to apply these skills and your academic knowledge by taking advantage of the extensive internship network maintained by Konstanz, if you choose to.
You will study at two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Durham in the UK and the Upper Middle Rhine region in Germany. As the Durham-EBS Executive EMBA is delivered entirely in English in a classroom setting, you can continue to work full-time whilst studying as most teaching is delivered once each month in three-day blocks (Thursday through to Saturday).
The programme’s strong international focus is also reflected in the core and elective modules, with the International Business in Context elective module delivered at a top business destination. The business and alumni connections you gain will also support you in furthering your career.
This dual award draws on both UK-specific and European experience giving you an insight into leadership in today’s international business world.
Throughout the programme you will explore the operations of global markets, understand how to lead transnational business relations and further build your international network of contacts. You will also be working alongside a diverse group of experienced business professionals and academics from the UK, Germany and around the world.
The Durham-EBS Executive MBA programme commences each September with a seven-day residential stay in Durham, England. During the 18 month programme you will complete:
Note: Module instruction in Germany is held once a month from Thursday to Saturday. The cost of accommodation and some meals for each one-week residential stay in Durham is included in the programme fee.
The nine core modules of the programme will establish your foundational knowledge, understanding and research skills:
You will then choose the three elective modules most aligned to your personal career aspirations and goals from the following list to complete:
Note: Elective module choices may change year on year, depending on current faculty and relevance to business.
Following the completion of your elective modules, you will undertake a research-based Strategic Business Project. You may choose to pursue the project in two ways, either by working with your own company or a host organisation, or through an issue-led investigation which is not focused on a particular organisation but instead examines a specific management issue.
You will receive training in academic writing, as well as qualitative and quantitative business research methods throughout the programme as part of this module.
This is a great opportunity for you to apply your MBA skills and knowledge to address a practical question and help your own or another organisation tackle a current issue or challenge. Whilst undertaking the project you will further develop your research and management skills, building your network and, and in many instances, extending your international experience.
Past projects have been undertaken across a wide variety of organisations, such as multinational corporations in the manufacturing, service and finance sectors, family-owned businesses, the public sector and non-profit organisations.
Your first residential is a seven-day induction in the UK at the start of your Durham-EBS Executive MBA journey, which will launch you into the programme. It’s a great way to introduce you to the EMBA and enhance your key capabilities including team building, group work, reading and academic writing skills (supporting those who may have been away from academic education for some time).
Not only will you spend time at Durham University Business School and have the chance to explore the city of Durham, you will go on to discover another area in the UK. In previous years this has been the Lake District, a charming region in the Northwest of England.
Your induction will start on a Sunday in Durham, where you will meet your fellow students and members of the EMBA Programme Management Team. You will receive personal introductions, be provided with information to navigate your way through the programme, and learn out about support and administrative services.
On Monday you will familiarise yourself with Durham University and then on Tuesday you will receive academic writing training and attend your first module.
Following the completion of your module you will travel to another UK destination where you will engage in a variety of indoor and outdoor team-building experiences and develop various additional personal and team skills. This is a particularly memorable aspect of the EMBA and the relationships built here will last throughout the programme and beyond.
Your second residential week will take place the following year, probably in September. During this week you will complete another core module in Durham, UK, and experience further indoor and outdoor skills enhancement and team-building activities.
You can choose to be mentored by a certified coach at EBS as you consider your life and career choices, and select the coach based on common interest.
Career services support is available from EBS, and you can access the online careers platform provided by Durham University Business School which will provide you with supplementary skills to supporting you in advancing your career.
The Programme Director will keep in regular contact with you as well as tutors and programme teams at both sites.
The Haifa Center for German and European Studies (HCGES) is a joint venture of the University of Haifa and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD – Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst). HCGES was founded in 2007 with the goal of exposing students, researchers, and the community at large to a rich spectrum of topics related to modern Europe, and Germany in particular, since 1945.
The international Master of Arts program in German and European Studies at the University of Haifa is being launched as part of the teaching activities of the HCGES. The MA program is designed to acquaint students with topics related to Germany and Europe, highlighting Jewish and Israeli perspectives as well as the relationship between the Middle East and Europe. The program is interdisciplinary and allows students to approach German and European studies from a variety of angles while providing students with the opportunity to engage with other departments for a well-rounded education.
The MA program in German and European Studies aims to deepen students’ knowledge of Germany, Europe, and the European Union. The program is structured using the “area studies” model and offers a challenging and unique interdisciplinary curriculum that combines many fields of study including economics, law, political science, geography, environmental studies, sociology, history and literature. In addition to the core curriculum, students in the program acquire a strong command of the German language by studying 4-8 language hours per week. The program is available in two tracks: a thesis track and a non-thesis track. Students have the option to complete the program in one or two calendar years.
The program also includes an optional, though highly recommended, study tour to Germany and other European countries. The study tour is built around a chosen theme which changes every year. During the study tour, students visit EU institutions as well as other sites relevant to their studies. The cost of the study tour is not included in the program tuition.

Germany is home to the largest energy sector in Europe and a forerunner in renewable energy deployment. Where else would you study energy law than in Germany’s capital?
For the fourth year now Technische Universität Berlin offers the advanced Master of Business Law European and International Energy Law on the EUREF Campus in the centre of Berlin. The course offers lawyers, legal practitioners and economists an excellent opportunity to gain expertise in the field of international and European energy law. Students will become acquainted with the technical and economic foundations of energy markets as well as all areas of law relevant for the value chains in the electricity and gas sector. The curriculum covers competition law, regulatory law and economic fundamentals inter alia.
Lectures come from the international community (Germany, USA, Switzerland, Belgium, Norway, Russia) and are experts from universities, European and national authorities, international and national energy companies, major law firms, and courts. To name a few, technical universities, the European Commission, the German regulatory authority BNetzA.
The course is also supported by the Institute for Energy and Regulatory Law Berlin (http://www.enreg.eu) and benefits from experts‘ knowledge of the European and German energy sector which is the largest one in Europe. The academic director is Professor Dr. iur. Dr. rer. pol. Dres. h.c. Franz Jürgen Säcker who is the editor and author of leading publications in the field of energy law.
The first Semester is dedicated to the fundamentals of energy Regulation. The technical and economic characteristics of the electricity and gas sector will be taught. Students will become acquainted with the technical and economic fundamentals to follow the second semester.
In the second semester, energy law will be taught. This includes the legal framework relevant for the building and the operation of plants generating electricity from fossil and from renewable sources, for the operation of grids as well as for the supply of energy. In the second semester furthermore negotiation strategies will be taught. The theoretical knowledge will be supplemented by excursions, e.g. to a power plant, a CCS-plant and to the EEX which is largest electricity stock exchange in Continental-Europe.
We are part of Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, which is one of Germany’s largest universities with currently more than 30,000 students. Committed to the principles of excellence and quality, TU Berlin offers outstanding performance in research and teaching and excellent skills for the students. Technical University of Berlin is consistently ranked among the top academic institutions in the world. Notable alumni include Carl Bosch, Gustav Hertz, and many other noble prize winners and entrepreneurs.
The MBL Degree
Upon completion of the course you will be conferred the academic degree Master in Business Law (MBL). The master programme focuses on a particular sector and incorporates practical legal, regulatory and business perspectives. The master on European and International Energy Law (MBL Energy) is one of the first programmes worldwide with a clear focus on energy and regulatory law as a special field of business law. Students gain skills and knowledge that reach far beyond the basics of energy law enabling them to successfully pursue careers in industry, law firms and regulatory authorities.
Among many different fields of law energy law is on the rise. Global climate change and the policy transitions translate into many areas of law: State aid and renewable energy promotion, emission trading systems, the legal framework for grid operation and last but not least the digitalization of the energy sector. But to understand energy law is to grasp the technical and economic foundations underlying it. Energy law is not only interdisciplinary in this classical sense, but also a true legal hybrid: At the challenging intersection of public and private law, competition and regulatory law energy law spans across the national, European and international level.
Our Master Programme gives lawyers and economists an excellent understanding of the complexities and intersections of energy sector. The program gives students and future employees a distinctive profile and qualifies them for a leading position in the energy sector. Small groups of up to 30 students allow for individual and effective learning.
Regular excursions to relevant institutions and infrastructure operators are tightly built into the programme’s schedule. We believe hands-on experience strengthens the learning process and prepares students for their future employments Students will visit the largest electricity stock exchange in continental Europe, the EEX in Leipzig, the energy intensive undertaking AURUBIS in Hamburg, the photovoltaics manufacturer ALEO Solar in Prenzlau, the Vattenfall’s CHP plant in Berlin and the network operator 50Hertz in Berlin.
The 15-month full-time MBA International Management program prepares graduates for working in a complex multicultural world. The program targets international candidates with a non-business degree but offers enough depth for business degree holders seeking to further refine and strengthen their education. Students may select two of four elective courses, an international focus (Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China) as well as an international or practical immersion in Term 3, choosing from the following three options:
• Internship + 1 International Week or
• Study abroad.
This approach allows students to enhance knowledge regarding a specific country or organization before demonstrating their acquired skills with their Master Thesis.
Munich Business School, is recognized by U-Multirank 2017 as Germany’s best private university of applied sciences in “Business Studies”, received by Trendence Graduate Barometer 2017 excellent grades for internationality and practical relevance and among others, ranked by Trendence Employability Ranking 2016 as 1st amongst all private universities of applied sciences, including all academic subjects across Germany.
The MBA International Management (MBA IM) is divided into three terms over a period of 15 months. Each term covers topics from the three major modules Business & Management Knowledge, Executive & Leadership Skills, and International Business Environment. This effective modular structure is the basis for a challenging and compact MBA program, which allows its completion in less than one and a half years – thus minimizing the time our students spend putting their professional careers on hold.
MBA students receive in-class instruction on business topics and executive skills during Terms 1 and 2. In addition, they can choose two of four elective courses. Choices are: Management in Emerging Markets or Digital Business Transformation in the Fall term as well as Social Entrepreneurship or Global Supply Chain Management in the Spring term. Furthermore, they choose one of three International Focuses: Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China. In Term 3, students can opt for an International Immersion studying one semester abroad. Alternatively, they can also choose a Practical Immersion (Internship) combined with an international week. Depending on their practical business experience, students may be eligible to waive the practical or international immersion in Term 3. This so-called Fast Track reduces the overall study time to a total of twelve months.
The Master Thesis at the end of the program demonstrates the students‘ profound understanding of current business topics and the ability to apply specific scientific methods to a real-world business situation. The topic will be chosen in collaboration with a company. Therefore, the knowledge and research presented in the thesis are valuable for both the student and their company.
Internationality and practical relevance are two of the core values of The Munich MBA.
International immersion: Students can extend their international experience by studying abroad at one of our over 60 partner universities worldwide.
Practical immersion: Students may either complete an nternship and in addition, they will spend an international week at a selected partner university.
When carefully selecting the candidates for our MBA International Management program, we pay very close attention to putting together a diverse yet cohesive group of students. Be it through their academic backgrounds, their personal experiences or their professional paths – we want to create the best possible opportunities for our MBA students in terms of networking potential and mutual enrichment. Here are some numbers of the MBA International Management class:
Average age: 30 years
International / German: 75% / 25%
Average Work Experience: 8 years
Female / Male: 75% / 25%
Academic Background: Engineering/IT - 25%, Business - 25%, other - 50%
Munich Business School offers a limited number of partial scholarships to outstanding candidates applying for The Munich MBA (up to 25% off the first two semester tuition rates). Selection criteria for the MBS Best Scholarship for outstanding candidates include the following: outstanding educational achievements, professional background, high GMAT scores, international work experience, foreign language skills, social engagement, candidates’ performance throughout the selection process. Since the number of scholarships is limited, early application increases students’ chances.
The MBA International Management program is – like all study programs at Munich Business School – internationally accredited by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). As Bavaria‘s first and so far only private university, MBS has received unlimited state accreditation by the Bavarian State Ministry and institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat).
MathMods is a 2-year Joint MSc programme which can be taken in 5 EU universities: University of L’Aquila in Italy (UAQ), Vienna University of Technology in Austria (TUW), Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain (UAB), Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) & University of Hamburg in Germany (UHH), and University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France (UNS).
What makes MathMods so special is its peculiar mobility scheme, that is the fact that our students will be spending their postgrad years in two or even three different European countries. You'll be indeed studying in central Italy for your first semester, then move to Austria or Germany for the second term, and finally move again to 1 of our 5 partners for your second year, based on the mobility path you'll be assigned.
Upon graduation students will be awarded a Joint Master's degree (or double, depending on where they spend their Year2).
Since its establishement in 2008 MathMods was funded by the EU Commission firstly through the Erasmus Mundus programme action 1 A (project no. 2008-0100), and later through the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 programme, project no. 2013-0227. We're currently applying for the Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2018 to continue awarding Erasmus Munuds scholarships to our future generations. No matter the outcome, MathMods will still be running with the aid of Consortium grants and other local grants. Visit the sections Apply and Program Structure to learn more.
Semester 1 focuses on Theory and is to be spend in L'Aquila (Italy)
Semester 2 focuses on Numerics and can be taken in Vienna (Austria) or Hamburg (Germany).
Then for Year2 each partner institution offers a specific curriculum or study path:
Semester4 is dedicated to thesis work.
Mathematical modelling refers to the use of mathematics and related computational tools to bring real-world, challenging and important socio-economic and industrial problems into a form simple enough so that a good solution can be found in a reasonable time, while keeping the relevant features of the problem. Constructing models requires knowledge of enough mathematical theory, methods of solution which are really effective and efficient, computational tools at hand to do it, some knowledge of the field of application, and communicative skills to understand the important elements from experts in that field. Our master's programme tries to put together all these elements to produce professionals able to work in different relevant fields with the highest intellectual level and state-of-the-art tools.
Effective modelling and simulation is an art that require a lot of practice, so that problem solving, project development and team work are aspects that should be highlighted in any training programme, as our Consortium knows perfectly. On the other hand, the abstraction behind the specific application is necessary to realise that the same base tools can be applied, with the needed changes, to very different situations in various engineering fields.
The language of the whole course is exclusively English at each of our five universities. Students must also attend (and acquire the relating credits of) a course of basic Italian language (first semester) and German language (second semester). Students will also have the opportunity to attend local language courses during their second year (spent at one of the five partners).
The area of applied mathematics on which this project is focused is a fundamental scientific field for a number of key technologies and sciences. The areas of the proposed tracks connect very well with various branches of the European high-tech industry, and one of the goals of the project is to enhance these connections by means of the release of well prepared professionals and researchers.
Career opportunities for graduates will typically arise in research and development laboratories, especially those defining and testing numerical models and procedures, either working for an specific sector or with a broader scope. Also, in big or medium size enterprises possessing their own research department or a division with an orientation towards research, in public or privately held Sector Technology Centres, and at computing centres involved in data processing or the creation of numerical codes for the industry.
Click here to view the results of a recent survey taken by our graduates about their overall experience in our MSc and their work experience after having graduated.
The graduates will be able to apply successfully for PhD programmes if they wish so, as has happened for the three already completed cycles. In all the countries of the Consortium members, the programme has been validated as enabling the holder of the MSc degree to enter a local PhD programme. A good percentage of our students seem indeed to prefer pursuing a PhD before going to the industry or returning to their countries of origin. The intended level of the programme, together with the initial selection of the students, allows affirming that most of them could follow a successful academic career, after a suitable PhD.
This double degree programme is a research-focused postgraduate programme in German and Russian Law with a fully integrated study-abroad component. As a student enrolled in this programme, you will study towards your double Master's degree at two universities – the University of Passau (Germany) and Siberian Federal University in Krasnoyarsk (Russia). The programme carries a total workload of 120 ECTS credits and is directed at students who have an undergraduate degree in law or in a subject with a strong legal focus.
The programme acquaints German students with the principles of the Russian legal system, allowing them, for instance, to put the focus on the economic and tax laws in Germany and Russia. This requires knowledge of Russian (legal) language, which is taught as part of the degree programme.
As a student enrolled in this degree programme, you will acquire the skills and knowledge required to work as a jurist in the area of German and Russian law, while simultaneously developing the competencies required for independent scholarly work.
– The first fully integrated Russo-German law degree programme in Germany
– Students spend two semesters at the partner university in Krasnoyarsk
– No tuition fees whatsoever
– The same module catalogue at both universities
– Joint colloquia with German and Russian students
– Compulsory internship abroad as part of the programme
– Previous academic achievements at other German or Russian universities are eligible for recognition
– The University of Passau and Siberian Federal University each award a final certificate making reference to the respective opposite
university (double degree)
The degree programme consists of five areas of study:
A) General Scientific Foundations
You will attend lectures on the philosophy of law and complete one foreign language course. This part of the degree programme allows you to engage in advanced study of the theoretical underpinnings of law at the beginning of your Master's programme, while the language course imparts the language skills you will need for studying in Russia.
B) Professional Cycle
Module group B.I – Legal Methods and History of Law
Module group B.I is composed of the following foundation courses: methods and history of comparative legal studies; history of political and legal science; history and methods of law; beginner's colloquium: current problems of law. These modules provide the research-methodological and theoretical foundations for comparative legal studies and working with foreign law. The primary purpose of the beginner's colloquium is to help students on the course to identify more closely with the degree programme. All students complete the beginner's colloquium in Krasnoyarsk.
Module group B.II – Principles of foreign law
Students enrolled in the programme complete this module group during their stay at the partner university. This involves courses on the principles of German and Russian law, as well as other courses. The required electives include courses on the core areas of the respective foreign law: Russian students in Passau will complete one two-semester foundation course in either civil law, public law or criminal law, and at least one additional course from this list for a duration of one semester.
Module group B.III – Specialisation
Students will study the courses taught in this module group upon their return to their home university. This module group allows you to set your own specialisation by choosing a sub-discipline which you will study in greater depth. The module is designed to maximise your choice, allowing you to focus on selected questions of (public) economic or (civil) business law, tax law, or international and European law. In addition, German students can complete courses with an East-Central-European focus offered by the University's Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
In this segment of the programme, you will apply the theoretical knowledge accumulated over the previous semesters. In a variety of courses, you will gain the ability to write shorter academic papers. You will also use this module group to write up a synopsis of your Master's thesis, which you will present and discuss in the group. The research colloquium is open to all students in Passau.
D) Professional Preparation
This part of the programme prepares you for legal work in an international context. The practical module consists of a six to eight-week internship, which you will usually complete abroad.
E) Final Assessments
At the end of the degree programme, you will undergo an oral examination. In addition, all students are required to write a Master's thesis (preferably on comparative law) in German, English or Russian and undergo an oral defence.

Reasons you should consider the MA in Digital Curation are:
This King’s-Humboldt joint MA in Digital Curation is a two-year course involving one academic year of study at each institution. It offers you access to the combined talents of two world-class departments.
Digital content and digital technologies are a defining feature of our age. Digital data, information and knowledge are an asset for cultural heritage, memory institutions, industry, commerce and government. They are fundamental for research and practice in fields such as the law and medicine. As individuals we increasingly communicate and record our lives and our memories in digital form. But digital information is fragile and complex and requires ongoing and active curation as we seek to ensure its longevity and innovate in its use, and exploit its social, cultural and commercial value.
This course will give you the core skills, knowledge and competencies you need to become a leader in the rapidly expanding field of digital curation. You will study a wide range of subjects including metadata, preservation, knowledge representation, digital libraries, ethics and rights management, and new digital technologies and methods, including cloud and crowd-sourcing technologies. You will also have an opportunity to undertake an internship to gain workplace experience. We want you to acquire a great deal of practical knowledge, but even more we want you to develop your critical and reflective capacities, and to acquire an understanding of the inter-dependence of developments in digital processes, technology and curatorial practice. This MA will also provide an excellent grounding if you are interested in going on to a PhD in Digital Curation or a related area.
The MA in Digital Curation is designed to prepare students for leadership roles in organisations and enterprises with significant volumes of digital information and knowledge. The course responds to the increasing demand for digitally literate professionals to work in education and heritage institutions, as well as wider industry by equipping students with a range of strategic, technical and practical skills to provide direction and leadership in the curation of digital information and assets.
