Studies and training
Bachelor in Business Information at Coristo & dual University Mannheim
In collaboration with DHBW Mannheim, Coristo offers a course of dual studies in business information. Dual studies combine scientific studies with business practice, offering students important career skills.
Bachelor Studies in Business Information at Coristo and the Dual University in Mannheim are an ideal combination between scientific studies and hands-on work in a business.
The course takes three years. It is designed in such a way that three-month practical periods, which take place at our premises, alternate with theoretical segments at university.
The content of the practical segments is closely oriented on business workflows at Coristo. It offers students the opportunity to directly implement the content which they have learned at university in our SAP consulting projects, along with the respective business management processes and information challenges.
During the study course, students receive a working contract and remuneration.
