Double Degree Program with HWR Berlin
The double degree program will provide the opportunity to graduate students from both institutions to simultaneously pursue the Master degree from ZHAW School of Management and Law (ZHAW) and Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR).
Upon successful completion of the double degree program, the following degrees will be awarded by the partner institutions:
- SML: Master of Science (MSc) in Management and Law
- HWR: Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Business Law in an International Context
Students enrolled in the program spend their first year at their home university and the second year at their host university.
The Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR) is a renowned school for economics and law located in Berlin, a world-leading center of science and a cosmopolitan metropolis. It is characterized by its practical and solution-oriented approach to training and is known for the outstanding international orientation of the courses on offer.
Candidates for the double degree program will be selected by their home institution according to selection criteria jointly defined and agreed upon by ZHAW and HWR. Due to the higher workload compared to the ordinary Master study tracks at the partner institutions, only highly qualified students shall be selected for the double degree program.
Each institution reserves the right to require double degree candidates to complete the standard enrolment documents and to provide the results of any required entrance examinations. The host institution has the right to not accept a double degree candidate from the home institution for academic rationales or any other substantial reasons.
