    I am interested in a dual study programme. Does esome support that?

    We would be happy to check individually whether esome is a suitable cooperation partner for your studies. An important prerequisite for this is that your studies do not follow the block model, but that you permanently work in our office several days a week. This is the only way we can train you holistically, bring you closer to the daily business and probably even assign own customers to you. One university that supports this model is the IUBH in Hamburg.
