Workload
 Be prepared for:
Travelling
between faculties
Burnt weekends
Projects and
finals
Internships
 Compulsory accounting internship

Career Prospects
 Advantages:
 “Impressive”
 Unique/special (can be a disadvantage too)
 Exposure to both disciplines
 Finance knowledge (ability to understand financial statements a huge plus)
 Disadvantages:
 Time/discipline extremely important
 Both are specialized – skills/knowledge transferable?
 Non-academic commitments?
Career Prospects
 Where do you want to go?
 Engineering or Accounting or Finance?
 Accountancy or Business degree?
 Academic results only get you the interviews
 Rest is up to you
Additional Pointers
 Know what you want/why you want to do DDP
 Know your strengths and plan “buffer mods”
 Be wary of “webcast-traps”
 Go for exchange if you can
 Have an idea of what to have in your CV
 Keep on track with suggested curriculum
 More flexibility (pre-requisites less of an issue)
 Batchmates
