Internship Seminar

Bachelor's students in BBE and BaWiSo (IBW major) can complete an internship abroad as part of their studies. In order for this to be recognized, administrative steps must be followed. The chronological order is explained step by step below.

Note: The internship seminar must always be completed successfully for recognition.

1. Does my internship meet the requirements?

An internship abroad gives you the chance to put the business skills you have learned during your studies into practice. Please read through the internship requirements to assess whether an employment is suitable. The job taken must be a qualified business position; part-time jobs are not suitable.
