Particularly outstanding applicants can apply for a scholarship. A number of NIT partner companies offer industry scholarships and after an intensive selection procedure pay the tuition fees for double-degree master’s students. The companies include Procter & Gamble, NXP, and ArcelorMittal to name a few. If you would like to apply for a scholarship please study the requirements of the company in question carefully.
For further information, full scholarship covers all NIT tuition fees for the management program and the intensive German language course in Hamburg.
