“The Bologna process has erased the dividing line between the university and the professional career. More and more talented graduates are entering the labour market directly upon completing their bachelor’s degree — and rightly so — to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice. Our universities must offer academic continuing education courses tailored to these young professionals. DUW’s professional development master’s degree programmes are an important development in the market for academic continuing education, and an important contribution towards the goals of the Bologna reform.”

"For years people have been preaching that completing a formal education does not mean the end of learning, but rather it’s beginning, as ever faster changes in business and society require an ongoing commitment to learning and re-invention.  So far, few universities have answered to this call.  Now, with DUW and its focus on continuous education, we have finally an academic institution whose mission is entirely dedicated to meeting these challenges."

“The master’s degree course in Drug Research and Management teaches the latest trends in the complete process of developing and marketing a drug. Thus it gives highly qualified employees in the pharmaceutical industry a comprehensive opportunity to continue their education at an academic level while working. Those who want to take on responsibility in the pharmaceutical industry need the knowledge about the interdependencies of many different processes that is taught in this course.”

“The small and medium-sized enterprises among our members are concerned about the demographic shift and the scarcity of qualified staff. DUW’s programmes are just the thing for them. The master’s degree courses and certificate programmes for working professionals allow their employees to continue their education at the highest level while remaining involved in their company’s day-to-day business.”
