The only German university member of CEMS network and PIM, the mission statement is all about “Innovation for society” discovering new avenues for solving important future issues in the relevant domains.

Double Degree Structure

DD students will spend 1 year at LSM and one year at UoC. Although programmes are subject to change, you can check examples here below:

Master's Thesis

Students enrolled in a double degree LSM/UoC are required to write a joint master's Thesis. Therefore they will have two supervisors: one at LSM and one at UoC.
Students start their work for the master's thesis already during the first year. The master's thesis will be written in English. A mandatory oral defense will take place in front of both supervisors (by skype if needed).

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are paid at the "home" university, for the entire duration of the studies. Administrative fees might be required at the "host" university.
