First RUN-EU Double Degree Programme agreed for bachelor’s students in International Business

21 April 2022

The Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) and the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FHV) have agreed on creating the first RUN-EU Double Degree Programme for bachelor’s students in International Business from both institutions.

From fall semester 2023 onwards, up to three students of each university will be able to enrol in a Double Degree Programme. Third-year students will gather the necessary ECTS credits at the hosting institution and perform the graduation requirements of both programmes to graduate in this Double Degree Programme.

‘Based on the broad similarities of our programmes, and first intense talks already before the Exploratory Mission, we were quite confident to get an agreement – but at the end, it turned out even easier than expected’, said Merja Helin, Head of the Bachelor Programme in International Business at HAMK.

‘We are more than happy about our achieved goal which will make our shared RUN-EU visions and mission viable for students and staff’, Martin Hebertinger, Head of the Bachelor Programme in International Business at FHV added. The inspiring setup of this Exploratory Mission hosted by the colleagues at HAMK gave the framework for further fruitful exchanges amongst the partners of the RUN-EU network.

The RUN-EU Double Degree Programme in International Business at HAMK and FHV will now be put into the required written form and signed in the nearest future. This is the first step to be followed by a lot of others in order to fulfil the promise that our students will inherit the future.
