Aston Business School: double your opportunities

For our double degree programme, we partner with some of the world's leaders in business education. Each school shares Aston's philosophy for employability and offers courses that reflect the needs of industry. 

Depending on the partner university, all Aston Business School students can apply to take a double degree. 

In addition to the ambition to study overseas, you will need to complete the first year of your studies at Aston.

In our partnership with these prestigious institutions we have acknowledged the quality of each other’s degrees. This means that, when you go overseas, you will already have credits from Aston Business School towards the degree that you choose to study overseas. The cost of your second year of study is 50 per cent of the fee that you pay for your MSc studies at Aston Business School.

We offer our double degree programme at the following institutions (please note, places are subject to availability):
