Benefits for Businesses

The Hochschule Kaiserslautern sees itself as a regionally rooted university, and as such, KOSMO focuses on local businesses, especially small to mid-sized companies in Westpfalz and the surrounding regions.

The cooperative/dual study model is geared towards companies hoping to address young talent; their future skilled workforce. It is intended for students who wish to gain a more profound sense of practical relevance and hope to make industry contacts early on in their careers.

As a KOSMO partner company, you can present yourself in the KOSMO company database, and speak directly to students studying sought-after subjects.

With KOSMO, you can speak to the students that already know their career goals when they begin their studies. KOSMO students will get to know your company early on, and can choose focus areas during their time working in your company as part of the cooperative study model. This will reduce the time needed for introductory training if the student later becomes a full employee.

KOSMO can also support you in showing your existing employees that there are prospects for academic development within your company by way of a cooperative study course at the Hochschule Kaiserslautern. As such, KOSMO also offers you an advantage in recruiting and retaining skilled workers.


With the cooperative study model, you will build a close and long-lasting relationship with the university, receive the latest news, and can make use of additional possibilities for cooperation.
