Find the perfect blend

Studying a dual degree is a great way to merge your areas of interest. Narrowing down what you would like to specialize in can be really tough, so a dual degree is a fantastic way to remain open to other sectors. Many people don’t have just one field of interest, so a dual degree program can be the perfect solution to carving out a career that will keep you on your toes—and highly employable.

Both diversify and specialize

Why pick just one path to follow? Studying a dual degree positions you at the intersection of two fascinating pathways. Interdisciplinary education is the key to both diversifying and specializing your knowledge. You could follow a professional career in either field of study, as you’ll be qualified in both. Or, you could follow a career that marries the two beautifully. A dual degree makes you well-equipped for this, in a way that regular master’s programs don’t. Pursue a career that is a perfect culmination of both of your expert fields, in a way that few other graduates can.

Get two degrees in two years

In the current economic environment, we have to work twice as hard to stay on top. Boost your productivity and make good use of your time by completing two degrees at once. In under two years, you’ll have earned two master’s degrees from a prestigious university. Pretty efficient, if you ask us.

Dual degree, dual connections. It’s so important to build connections for your professional career, and IE University is a great place to start. Whether you experience it in person or online or both, IE University is a bustling hub filled with international students from all walks of life.

Be more employable

Having a master’s degree under your belt is a fantastic way to show prospective employers that you are dedicated, hardworking and knowledgeable. However, an interdisciplinary approach is the way forward. Employers want well-rounded individuals who can think outside the box and offer unique perspectives. With the current job market being so competitive, a dual degree can be the launch pad you need to help boost your chances of landing your dream job.

Double your chances of success

A dual degree is seriously impressive on your CV, demonstrating your commitment and drive. With a dual degree, there’s potential for double the amount of professional opportunities. That’s not to mention you can increase your earning power—your diversified skills will mean even greater potential for a higher salary.
