Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Dual Study programme also available in my country?

Our Dual Study programme is offered exclusively in cooperation with IMC University of Applied Science Krems. Therefore, the theoretical part of this programme is only realisable in Austria. The practical part, however, can be completed in some other counties as well.

Which are the prerequisites for Dual Bachelor Students?

You should have passed your A-levels with an above-average result and share our passion for fashion. A certain sensitivity for style as well as commitment, strong communication skills and team-player skills are also in your favour. Furthermore, fluent German and English language skills (at least level B2) are essential for this programme.

How many places are there per year?

We offer 25 places per year.

In which stores can I complete the practical part of my studies?

Is there an application deadline?

How is the split between theoretical and practical parts during the programme organised?

The theoretical part of the study programme consists of about 6 weeks per semester and takes place at the IMC University of Applied Sciences of Krems, Lower Austria, and in Vienna. During this university-phase, you will be released from work so you can entirely focus on your classes. P&C will cover your hotel expenses during the theoretical blocks if you do not live in Krems or Vienna.

I am studying at a university right now – can I change to the Dual Study Programme?

Of course you can always apply for our programme. However, the possible recognition of ECTS has to be proved in every individual case and cannot be guaranteed.

Is it possible to attend classes at a local university to complete the theoretical part of the programme?

No. Our Dual Study Programme is offered exclusively in cooperation with IMC University of Applied Science Krems.

Which perspectives do I have after the programme?

During your second year, you will already assume responsibility as Deputy Department Manager. After the successful completion of your studies, you will start as Department Manager in one of our stores. Subsequent career perspectives are promising! Depending on your interests and performance, the next career steps could be Store Manager, Merchandise Controller or Retail Buyer – just to name a few.
