The success of double degrees to strengthen employability

Training continues to be a door to employment. In the midst of digital transformation and the globalization of markets, most companies continue to recruit talent but they do so by seeking new profiles, new abilities, new skills, new knowledge...adapted to the new times.

In this sense, universities and business schools have become instruments of preparation and access of their students to the labor market. It is just as important to choose the studies well as to do it in the right place, not only because of the knowledge acquired, but above all because of the way of doing it and the skills developed.

The tendency of companies is to look for talent with general training, such as Law, Business Administration or Engineering, but at the same time with the reinforcement of specialization provided by Master's degrees or training given by professionals.

This is how some universities have acted for a long time, incorporating double degrees, in most cases with an important practical component due to the presence of active professionals in their faculty. Such is the case, for example, of ICADE, which for years has been offering the Double Degree in Law and Business Administration, with a practical component that provides its students with high employability.

Universities such as CUNEF, with extensive experience in financial and economic training, have been introducing technical and even technological training for years, offering double degrees such as, for example, the Degree in Business Administration, to which are added 21 Minor credits in International Finance and Banking, a specialization that provides the student with a greater professional focus on their profile.

Double degrees introduce another differential value, increase employment opportunities and, above all, reinforce and specialize students, providing them with greater value in the market, as is also the case with university institutions such as IEB, with an excellent background of more than 30 years in financial training and that offers its undergraduate students, double degrees such as Business Administration or Law with Stock Exchange and Financial Markets, International Relations or Business Analytics, complements to the generalist Degrees that provide a differential value to the students, as well as a practical training given by professionals.

This type of specialization has provided IEB with 100% job placement for its undergraduate students even before they have finished their four years in which they obtain the double degree, years in which they face challenges with companies and in which At the same time, in those same four years, they acquire their specialized master's degree and carry out their international stays at prestigious universities such as the LSE (London School of Economics) in London or Fordham University in New York.

In short, double degrees expand employment opportunities, but they also do so by bringing employers and the business world closer to the student, with companies and professionals participating in program design, teaching and, of course, collaborating subsequently in the processes of incorporating students into the labor market.

Another example of double degrees is IE, with many years of prestigious position in postgraduate studies and which, likewise, offers its undergraduate students double degrees where both the practical approach and the international vision prevail.
