Dual Degree

For ISEG Students

What is a Dual Degree?

A dual degree involves studying for two university degrees in parallel, completing both of them in the time it normally takes to study for just one degree. This involves:

  • Spending the first and second years of studies at ISEG, and the third year at the Kozminski University;
  • Being able to satisfy the degree entry requirements for both universities;
  • Gaining two degree diplomas (a Bachelors in Finance from ISEG and a Bachelors in Accounting and Finance from Kozminski University);
  • Only paying tuition fees at ISEG (until the 3 rd Year), with no additional costs for studying abroad at Kozminski University in your 3rd year. Students are responsible for their own insurance, travel, housing, and daily living costs, as well as for the purchase of books, learning materials, and any other non-tuition fee costs for studying at Kozminski University.

Why Choose a Dual Degree? 

  • This is particularly suitable for those who are planning on a career in organisations which transcend domestic borders. The degree considerably broadens the options and professional horizons that are available to you;
  • It is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself academically;
  • It is an outstanding opportunity for those students who are seeking not only academic knowledge, but also intercultural experience and international competence.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

  • To be eligible to apply for the dual degree, you have to be enrolled in the ISEG Bachelor in Finance, and must have concluded all the course units from the 2nd Year;
  • You have to apply for the dual degree at the end of the 1st Semester of your 2nd Year;
  • You require an English proficiency certificate, e.g.: FCE, CAE, CPE, BEC, CEIBT which are issued by the University of Cambridge; IELTS (>=6.0 points); TOEFL IBT (>=87 points); TOEIC (with at least 700 points in the exam); LCCI (English for Business Level 2, 3, 4); the London Test of English certificates (PEARSON) – Level 3, 4, 5 (Edexcel certificates). TOEFL and IELTS English language exam results are only valid for 3 years. You are only exempted from having to submit an English proficiency certificate if your High School Diploma confirms that English was your sole language of learning, or that English is your mother tongue;
  •  You need to have a knowledge of a foreign language, apart from English (Spanish), which equates to one year of study. Kozminski University may require that you sit a foreign language exam. If you fail the exam, then you are obliged to enrol in the foreign language course at Kozminski University in your 3rd Year for one or two semesters.
