Abstract

The purpose of our research is to reveal and explore deeper motivations and experiences of the Bachelor double degree program of Budapest Business School, University of Applied Sciences, College of Commerce, Catering and Tourism. Furthermore, this year the European Commission has a historical anniversary of the Erasmus Programme, which gave us the idea to emphasize this program in our research as well, because in most cases the double degree program is related to the Erasmus+ scholarships. We also had a personal motivation to investigate this topic, as the authors of this research are currently completing their double degree studies at Hof University of Applied Sciences, in Germany. First, we searched for facts and aims about the double degree and the Erasmus Programme, then we analyzed the data from the BBS CCCT Erasmus+ participation rata in a 8 years of period. Due to the topic and the small number of interviewees, we decided to conduct depth interviews. The interviewees were selected by the snowball method and arbitrarily from the sample, which was fundamentally small, and after the short introduction of the research questions, the main issues were revealed. Exceptionally interesting results have been produced, which can be found in the research and in the annex. The most important proposition (because in qualitative research no concrete conclusions can be drawn, the results are not representative) has been formulated in the following statements. The double degree program is an outstanding opportunity for the students of BBS, because they can be awarded with their own university’s and the partner university’s degree as well in the same period. Furthermore, the students of the program can gain competitive advantage on the labour market and professional language skills, just like widespread intercultural competences. On the other hand, our results according to the double degree program awareness in BBS CCCT was only partially fulfilled, because the results showed us that there is no specific promotion activity from the CCCT side to emphasized the program.
