German Dual System

The German Dual Education System is one of the cornerstones of the successful ‘Made in Germany’ brand, and is widely practiced in Germany, still considered as the global benchmark for quality and excellence in manufacturing. It is now widely adopted in several European and Asian countries to boost the competitiveness of their economies.

In its purest form, the German Dual System simply means ‘Learning by Doing’, blending theory with practical insights and experience within your organization.

For nearly 30 years, Indo German Training Centre (IGTC) is the only training platform in India that immerses both post-graduate students and seasoned management executives in this unique and purposeful learning and skilling program for the next generation of Indian managers and leaders.

  • Blends theoretical learning and insights with practical application in your organization.

  • Learn to define operational problems, identify holistic solutions and lead teams to implement them successfully within your organization.
