Double Degree - University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business

EF SEB LU logo


Do you want to further your career by obtaining an master's degree from not one but two top institutions? Would you like to gain international experience during your master's program? At University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business (SEB LU) you have the opportunity to take part in a so-called »Double Degree programme« in collaboration with one of our top partner institutions.


A Double Degree is an approved combined study programme leading to two degrees from two universities. After successful completion of all the programme requirements you receive an master's degree from SEB LU as well as an master's degree from Partner University.

Due to different national restrictions and differences between universities each Double Degree programme looks different, but it usually involves an equal amount of study-time at each university. Credits obtained at both universities within the programme are mutually acknowledged, resulting in a shortening of study time compared to acquiring both degrees separately.

SEB LU is highly selective in its choice of partner universities, adding only high profile, research oriented and accredited (both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation) universities to its list. All of our partners are leading institutions in their country in the field of economics and/or business, and offer great academic opportunities that represent additional benefits for students.


In today's international labour market, graduates with degrees obtained in two different countries will be one step ahead of the competition. Your international exposure will be highly valued by potential employers, not just in terms of business but also as far as life skills concerned.

Some European and non-European companies are already familiar with Double Degree programmes and double degree holders are more likely to be the candidates for international positions with better career opportunities than regular degree holders.

There are more benefits to enjoy. You will:

  • Obtain two master's degrees in considerably less time than it would take to earn them separately;
  • Experience »the best of both worlds« each university adds its specialty to the programme and thus complements the partner institution;
  • Experience different culture, business environment and learning approach;
  • Gain greater perspective in addressing international issues;
  • Have the opportunity to develop business level fluency in English;
  • Undergo a diverse learning experience through a more international classroom;
  • Take part in an internship (at least, this is as integral feature of some Double degree programmes, not all);
  • Be exempted from GMAT at partner institution;
  • Only pay tuition fees (part time students) at SEB LU, which are considerably lower that at partner institutions


Please be aware that these programmes are demanding and more challenging than if you were to pursue a single master's degree program at SEB LU. This means that only students with the strongest academic record and highest levels of ambition and motivation will be selected.


If there are more qualified students applying for a programme at partner institution abroad, than specified for an individual academic year, students that collect more points according to the following criteria take precedence:

  • Motivation for studying abroad
  • Language proficiency
  • Graduate program performance
  • Interview
    • 2nd cycle Double Degree programmes (Graduate programmes)
