KIMEP University is committed to developing strong dual degree programs with some of the world’s most famous universities. These programs allow students to receive two separate degrees: one from KIMEP University and one from the partner institution. This is a testament to the international recognition that KIMEP University attained all around the world.
The principle of dual degree programs is that students complete some of their courses at KIMEP University and the rest at the partner institution, with credits being recognized by both. All classes are taught in English. Students pay tuition where they study at that time. Usually, the number of places for dual degree programs are limited and competitive. Completing a dual degree program increases the students’ employability after they graduate, providing them with more and better job opportunities, both in Kazakhstan and abroad.
Currently, KIMEP University offers the following dual degree programs:
|Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany. Through this program, students earn a Master of Science (MSc) in Economics and Management Science from Humboldt University and a Master in Arts (MA) in Economics (MAE) from KIMEP University. Students complete the first year in Almaty, and move to Berlin for their second year. During the year at Humboldt, dual degree students from KIMEP University pay no tuition, except for an administrative fee totaling several hundred euros.|
|University of Glasgow, UK.
