Cooperative Education - Our Unique Study Concept
The dual study concept or cooperative higher education combines academic learning with workplace training. The innovative study concept of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) with alternating theoretical phases at the university and practical phases at a specific training partner is unique in Germany. Students are not only taught theoretical knowledge, but also learn to apply this knowledge in practice.
