Double Degree Master’s Program

Two master’s degrees in four semesters

You want to score twice with your master’s degree? This is an option with the so-called double degree: You acquire two degrees within a study program by completing part of your studies at a foreign university. This provides you with a definite advantage towards an international career and allows you to acquire skills that HR managers particularly value: language skills, intercultural experience and flexibility.

This Double Degree Master’s Program is offered by the EMS in cooperation with the renowned EDC Paris Business School. The entire course takes place in English. After the first semester in Mainz, you study in Paris for two semesters. During the lecture-free time in the summer, you will spend at least eight weeks doing an internship. In the fourth semester, you work on your master’s thesis, either in Mainz or as part of an additional semester abroad. Your master’s thesis is submitted to the EMS, however the EDC provides a second grader. After successful completion of your studies, you will receive the Master of Arts in International Business (EMS) as well as a master degree from the EDC Paris.
