GSR is an official education partner of IU International University

Official practice partner in the dual study programme.

GSR Gustav Stursberg is pleased to announce that it is now an official practice partner and education partner of the IU International University. Since March 2022, we have been training students in dual studies together with IU.

Dual study: advantages for students

No compromises: You don’t have to choose between studying or vocational training.

Practice and theory can be perfectly combined. Similar to an apprenticeship, the student receives practical experience in all areas of our company through GSR and can thus gain valuable professional experience at the same time.

Another advantage is the student’s flexibility. The dual study is structured in such a way that the student spends two days at the university and three days in the company at GSR while studying at the IU.

As a practice partner, we bear 100% of the tuition fees!

Dual studies: advantages for us as GSR

One of the advantages for us as a company is that we can train our growing need for highly qualified specialists ourselves. The students get to know our company, our processes, our structures and our culture right from the start. Thanks to the combination of theory and practice, students in the dual study programme can be deployed very quickly and can contribute know-how in the respective area. The chances of being taken on increase due to the precisely trained specialist.

In addition, GSR benefits from the digital and flexible offers of the university, which are geared to the pulse of time.
