The Implementation of a Double Degree in Poland and Its Consequences for Teaching Quantitative Courses
The Bologna process has created new opportunities for bilateral agreements between universities. One of the results of such a contract could be a double degree certificate which consists of two independent diplomas that are offered for the students who participated in an exchange. Programmes that involve strong quantitative courses have started to be interesting for universities with a quantitative approach which is connected with the recent disturbances in the financial markets that caused a big increase in demand for specialists from the risk measurement and management area. Additionally, a possibility of exchange highly improves the attractiveness of the programme. The aim of the paper is to show the benefits of the Bologna process for universities and students based on the example of the Master studies' curriculum offered by one of the Polish universities.(original abstract)
