This unique approach to learning has transformed the lives of countless aspiring professionals, empowering them to bridge the gap between theoretical understanding and real-world expertise.

Justin, a recent graduate of the University of Applied Sciences for Economics (FHDW) in Bielefeld, stands as a testament to the transformative power of dual studies. With a degree in business informatics and a focus on software engineering, Justin embarked on a journey that seamlessly integrated his academic pursuits with the dynamic world of software development at Getslash GmbH.

The FHDW‘s distinctive approach to dual studies, characterized by small-group learning and a strong emphasis on practical application, proved to be an ideal setting for Justin’s growth. Immersed in a collaborative environment alongside fellow students and experienced professionals, Justin honed his technical skills while gaining invaluable insights into the intricacies of software engineering.

During his tenure at Getslash GmbH, Justin’s contributions extended far beyond the realm of academics. He actively participated in a diverse range of projects, including the development of new features for the company’s flagship cloud-based ERP system. His involvement in these endeavors not only enriched his understanding of software engineering principles but also provided him with practical experience in project management, teamwork, and customer service. Justin’s ability to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application was evident throughout his dual study experience. He seamlessly integrated the concepts he learned in the classroom into his work at Getslash GmbH, consistently demonstrating his ability to translate abstract ideas into tangible solutions. Furthermore, he relished the opportunity to learn from experienced software engineers and other professionals within the company, absorbing their expertise and incorporating it into his own skillset.
