Double Master's Degree at Kozminski University, in collaboration with Montpellier Business School


Representatives of Kozminski University have signed another agreement concerning a double degree program. This time, under the agreement with the French Montpellier Business School, individuals pursuing a master's program in management (in English) will have the opportunity to obtain diplomas from both institutions. Montpellier Business School, like Kozminski University, has been ranked among the best business schools by "Financial Times" for years and possesses the prestigious "Triple Crown" of recognized international accreditations.

One of the most important areas of international cooperation at Kozminski University is the double degree studies, emphasizes Professor Mariola Ciszewska-Mlinarič, Dean of the College of Management. Thanks to partnerships with renowned universities worldwide, our students gain the invaluable opportunity to complete their studies with both a diploma from Kozminski University and one from a partner institution. We are delighted that in the master's studies in management, we can now offer a trip to France and an acquaintance with the exceptional institution that Montpellier Business School undoubtedly is.

Kozminski University was represented at the signing of the agreement by Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of the University, and Prof. Mariola Ciszewska-Mlinarič, Dean of the College of Management. Montpellier Business School was represented by Xavier Rajot, Director of International Academic Partnerships and Board Member and Dr. Oussama Ammar, Associate Dean of Program.

The agreement means that students at Kozminski University have the opportunity to gain knowledge and also draw from the international community of the renowned foreign institution without the need to go abroad for the entire period of study. During the program, students will spend two semesters in France, taking appropriate courses on the Montpellier Business School campus. Such an arrangement allows, among other things, to maintain contact with the local job market while simultaneously building an international network of contacts – peers from around the world who study in similar fields. Graduates of such programs emphasize that they built lifelong friendships and relationships helpful in developing their future careers.

The signed agreement with Montpellier Business School is another step in the implementation of the internationalization strategy of Kozminski University. The university consistently creates a fully tolerant, open, and multicultural environment and community. Many study programs – at all levels of education – are conducted in English, with the support of lecturers and scientists permanently cooperating with prestigious universities abroad like MIT, Harvard University, or ESCP Business School. Kozminski University also offers double degree programs at the master's level in Finance and Accounting and at the bachelor's level in Management (both in English).

On behalf of Montpellier Business School, I would like to share that we all are very happy and very enthusiastic about this additional meaningful milestone of our growing academic partnership, stressed Xavier Rajot, Director of International Academic Partnerships and Board Member. In the sequence of our initially celebrated Double Degree at bachelor level, we now managed to craft and finalize a Double Degree at master level! This is a major achievement for the benefit of our respective academic communities. And there is more to come.
