International Dual Degree (IDD) programmes recently emerged as an attractive transnational education (TNE) opportunity for both prospective students and higher education institutions. Students can experience different education systems, increase their international networks, and ultimately boost their employability. Organizations can develop their international presence, exchange best practices, and exploit efficiencies. Despite their numerous advantages and some distinguished cases of success, IDD programmes remain marginal in the global offer of TNE. Multiple processes intertwine to configure them as complex ventures that often intimidate education managers. The chapter builds on a case study to present decision-makers with a framework for designing and implementing a successful IDD programme. The WHEEL framework aims at equipping education managers with practical signposts for successfully engaging with such strategic opportunity.
