"The Amrita Center for International Programs is excited to offer Dual Degree programs, an academically attractive alternative to traditional methods of study. Through the Dual Degree programs, International students can undertake graduate coursework towards two separate degrees, simultaneously, usually completing the degree in just two years. Dual Degree programs at Amrita are popular since students are exposed to two areas of study while experiencing cross cultural immersion".
The programs help students complete two degrees in a shorter span of time. It costs less in terms of fees and other educational expenses. Students get to meet a large multicultural network of students, academicians, and professionals at the host universities. The programs open up new career paths for students and enhance their employability.
