Co­ope­ra­ti­on as a spring­board for your com­pany's suc­cess

Personnel has now become a critical success factor. The quality and quantity of applicants is sometimes insufficient, making it difficult to fill vacancies. It is also important to keep existing employees happy. We can help you with this and advise you on how to find suitable candidates for your company, particularly through our dual and part-time study principle, and how to satisfy and develop your employees in the long term.

With our range of dual Bachelor’s and part-time Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA study programs and our part-time doctoral program, we offer a suitable personnel recruitment and development measure for every stage of your employees’ development: whether for high school graduates, trainees, experienced professionals or specialists and managers.

These facts speak for themselves:

Better together! People are not only at the center of our work, but also at the FHDW: The close networking between the FHDW, the students and us as a company, as well as the mutual support before and during the studies, makes our cooperation so successful.

What I appreciate about the cooperation with the FHDW is the fast and binding exchange between the university of applied sciences, company and Students. No one here only one numberbut every request is taken seriously and quickly supported. As a graduate of the FHDW, you have an excellent mix of very good theoretical foundations and experience in direct practical implementation, which in my view makes you highly attractive to any employer.

We decided to do this back in 2011, our student*in the Business Informatics and Applied Informatics degree courses in cooperation with the FHDW in Mettmann, as we are enthusiastic about the high-quality studies and the close and open exchange, especially with regard to current IT topics. Due to the alternating Theory and practical phases are our dual students*After just three and two years respectively, our dual students are ready IT consultants and we are proud to have such great and competent colleagues on board.

The FHDW is a competent and valuable partner for us at various levels of our junior staff development. It is characterized in particular by its practical approach, its focus on its customers and its clear orientation towards the future.

For many years, the FHDW has been a valuable partner for the Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg when it comes to the training and further education of our junior managers at the highest level.We greatly appreciate the cooperation and are delighted, continue to work together to prepare young talents for a successful professional career.

I very much appreciate the personaln contact, be it between the company and the FHDW or between student and FHDW – always friendly, pragmatic and at eye level.

More about personnel marketing.

All measures of the joint recruiting strategy are usually free of charge for you.

Costs are only incurred if you decide on a suitable candidate and thus pay the tuition and examination fees.

More about the fees

There are so-called competence objectives for the practical phases of the course, which can be found in the respective module handbooks. Ideally, the content of the practical phases should therefore be based on the previous theory modules in order to deepen them accordingly.

It goes without saying that we support you in designing the deployment plans.

Each partner company has a fixed contact person who is available for all questions, requests and suggestions. Regular coordination meetings are part of our collaboration. This way we always keep each other up to date.

There is no specific application or registration deadline. However, every applicant must go through our selection process. This can usually be carried out at very short notice.
