New talent from the homes of your overseas locations
When recruiting, the majority of businesses focus on partnerships with the schools and universities in the country where their overseas location is situated. However, the junior staff members of some German overseas branches simply do not have enough intercultural expertise and lack the experience gained from having studied in Germany. Why not send selected students to Bavaria before they finish their degree for a study programme lasting 1 to 4 semesters in combination with a work placement at your headquarters? You also have the option of sending prospective students directly to Germany with a scholarship, providing the Bavarian universities recognise their access to higher education qualification.
We are happy to assist you in implementing suitable programmes. The 29 higher education institutions and universities within our network work with a myriad of renowned universities across the globe and maintain close relationships to German schools abroad.
How do these contacts benefit you?
- Why not offer scholarships for pupils? One of the requirements for a scholarship can be a compulsory language course, a work placement at one of your branches from all over the world and a comprehensive dual study programme that includes hands-on experience at one of your locations in Bavaria. We know businesses that have implemented this model and can use our network to support you in setting up an appropriate programme.
- We can connect you with universities in the country of your overseas location who are already working in partnership with higher education institutions in Bavaria. Thus, you will be at the heart of an attractive exchange programme in which advanced undergraduates first spend one semester abroad studying in Bavaria and then finish off with a work placement at your location in Bavaria. In addition, you can support participants of the programme in their German language courses. You then offer the programme’s top graduates a job position at one of your business locations abroad. This model is also already being utilised by several businesses.
- Depending on the partner university selected, the students also have the opportunity to enrol on a “Double Degree” programme. In this case, the students will graduate from both the university of their home country and a Bavarian university. They will thus receive two degrees. This is subject to an agreement between the two universities. You can enhance a suitable programme via scholarships and the ability to complete a work placement in the home country of your branch and in Bavaria – procuring new talent in the process.
