Extra-occupational study programs

Extra-occupational study programs are becoming increasingly important and popular. Reasons for this include, among others, changes in society and the labor market. Demographic change is causing increasing shortages of qualified specialists and executives. In addition, people work longer, while at the same time the demands on job profiles often change rapidly. Further education and lifelong learning is therefore becoming increasingly important, and one’s own initiative is becoming an essential criterion for career opportunities.

With an extra-occupational degree program, you develop your professional and personal skills, strengthen your own position in the company and open up new career paths. Often, parents also use this option to continue their education during parental leave in order to gain an academic degree.

Extra-Occupational Studies

The extra-occupational study programme combines, your university studies at the CBS with an apprenticeship or vocational training. Parallel to the Bachelor’s degree, you will acquire a recognized degree as an apprentice from the Chamber of Commerce (IHK). At the end of your study period of just four years you will have two degrees in your pocket. This saves you a lot of time compared to completing first an apprenticeship (2 to 3 years) followed by a study programme(3 to 4 years), and you are equipped from the beginning with a solid base of academic knowledge and extensive practical experience for your career.

Your path to an extra-occupational study program:

Option A:

  • Find and apply for an appropriate company
  • Received confirmation and sign apprenticeship contract with the company
  • Complete your application for a study spot at the CBS
  • Successfully complete the Assessment Day at the CBS

Option B:

  • Successfully complete the Assessment Day at the CBS
  • Receive, sign and return your CBS study contract
