B.A. Fitnesswissenschaft und Fitnessökonomie (dual)
Study programme of IST-Hochschule für Management
At the IST University of Management you can take the Bachelor "Fitness Science and Fitness Economics" as a dual form of study. The advantage: You obtain a recognised academic degree and combine your distance learning with an apprenticeship in the company.
You can apply the specialist knowledge you have acquired during your studies directly in everyday business and gain important practical experience in parallel. After this study programme, you will be able to recognise economic correlations and create and implement target group-specific training plans.
The practical content of the dual distance learning programme prepares you specifically for the specific tasks and challenges of the fitness and health industry. In addition to business basics, you will acquire knowledge in fitness-specific subject areas such as fitness management, sports medicine and training theory. The IST University of Management also offers various elective modules. This allows you to specialise in certain topics at an early stage.
