You would like to study dual with DGTLS?
Here you can find out how a dual study program works with us!
In addition to internships and apprenticeships, we also offer a dual study program as an entry-level opportunity at DGTLS. We work together with the DHBW (Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University) and send our students to the campus in Ravensburg. We are currently training students in "Business Administration - Media & Communications Management" and "Media - Media Design".
A dual study program has many advantages. Probably the biggest is learning with practical relevance. You can put the theory from the university directly into practice and thus have a much more lively and lasting learning effect. In addition, you not only learn something at university, but of course also in the practical phases at DGTLS! So you can finish your studies and already have extensive work experience. In addition, you have a secure income during your studies. You don't have to work part-time like other students, but can do what interests you and earn a fixed monthly salary at the same time.
After you have successfully completed the application process with us, we will contact the university and register you for the appropriate course and period of study - of course, this all happens in close consultation with you! As soon as everything has been clarified, it's time to sign the study contract. After that, everything is ready and we can start working together.
Studies at the DHBW run in three-month cycles. This means that within each semester, our students spend three months in the theoretical phase at the university and three months in the practical phase at our agency. In total, the program consists of six semesters, or three years, until you get your bachelor's degree.
I started at DGTLS in October 2020 and am now in my 4th semester. It was really cool that I was accepted right away despite the online application interview.
I decided to do a dual study program so that I could gain work experience during my studies and also learn how everyday life in an agency works in addition to the theory. And I ended up at DGTLS because I was looking for an agency in Munich and DGTLS even offered the dual study program as a position.
In the practical phase I work in the creation team, where I am involved in many exciting projects. In every second practical phase, I write a project paper that combines the theory from my studies with practical experience in the agency. Here I work on a larger project, about which I then write a scientific paper. You also learn a lot of new things and are always in contact with your colleagues.
I started at DGTLS in 2019 with a long-term internship in online marketing, which went on for just under a year. During this time, I also decided that I would like to continue my time at DGTLS and then started my dual studies the following October. I am now already in my 4th semester.
I originally came to DGTLS with the intention of doing a dual study program and bridging time until then with an internship in that erea. At that time, it was not clear to me which company I wanted to go to for the dual studies. During my internship here, however, I realized how much I liked working at DGTLS and that the agency would also be interested in working with me as part of my studies. At that point, other companies were no longer included in the planning. So one thing led to another and I'm still happy about my decision!
During my practical phases at DGTLS, I'm mainly in online marketing. However, because I am involved in many different projects, I also get an insight into the other departments. I partly look after smaller customers who only have a small budget with us, but I'm also often assigned to major customers, where I'm involved in the creation of larger SEO analyses and marketing strategies, for example.
I did an internship at DGTLS in 2020 and then started at DHBW in the winter semester. In the meantime, I am in the 4th semester in the theoretical phase.
After my photography studies, I was looking for a media design program that was as practically oriented as possible. DGTLS gives me the opportunity to do a variety of things and to learn and work in many design directions. The occasional photo or video shoot is the perfect balance to the daily agency routine.
In the first practical phases, I worked on many different projects and supported my colleagues. The focus was on getting to know the processes at DGTLS. In the meantime, I am assigned my own projects, which I carry out together with a colleague. I particularly like getting in touch with customers at workshops and gaining the confidence to contribute my own ideas. Now I also know my colleagues well and can get to know different areas of the agency. You learn a lot that can help you as a student.
We hope you got a good overview of the life of a dual student at DGTLS. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at any time! Our students can answer your questions firsthand.
We are looking forward to your application!
