The double degree programme of the HTW Dresden with the Université Paris Nanterre offers a solid basis of specialised knowledge and practical experience as well as an international orientation. Students are thus enabled to learn about international strategies and to support smaller medium-sized companies on the precise path to internationalisation. After completing the programme, students will be able to take on management tasks in internationally oriented medium-sized companies. They will be able to work successfully in a team in an intercultural environment and assume their own responsibility.

The programme is supported by the Franco-German University (FGU), a network of 213 higher education institutions from Germany and France, with infrastructure funding and student mobility grants. Students also have access to free individual language training before their semester abroad.

The studies take place in cohort with the French study group. After the first semester at HTW Dresden (in German), from the 2nd semester  a predefined study plan is studied in French at UPN (45 ECTS). In the last study period the writing of the application-oriented master thesis in cooperation with a medium-sized company in France is planned (15 ECTS).
