The Cooperative Study Model at IBA

With the integration of periods of practical training and theoretical study within each week - the split week model - the International University of Cooperative Education (IBA) offers a new approach to study which is welcomed by students and companies alike. The concept of cooperative education is based on close collaboration between the IBA and partner companies. The cooperative programme combines theoretical study with practical experience in a company. So each week consists of 20 hours of study and 20 hours spent in a company. The IBA offers degree programmes in Business Informatics, Business Administration as well as Industrial Engineering in a number of specialisations. The International University of Cooperative Education has campuses across Germany.
