At BMW we open our office doors and factory gates to interns: throughout the year many students spend time with us to get a taste of working life and to gain valuable insights into the different occupational fields at the BMW Group.As part of a short, part-time or full-time internship you also get to understand a great deal about people, technology, processes and corporate culture.
Depending on your degree course you can complete internships in a variety of fields. By being involved in ongoing projects you are able to gain valuable technical expertise and hands on project experience - in development and production, but also in administration, purchasing, sales/marketing, human resources, press and public relations or finance. We will mutually agree personal performance targets and will meet with you regularly to give you feedback on your personal development.
You learn to put the theory you have studied at university into practice and to hone your teamwork skills. These represent key requirements for your future success in the workplace and put you at a distinct advantage in relation to your fellow students when applying for a job. Practical experience is, after all, a prerequisite for a successful application with the BMW Group and other important German industrial companies. The initiative "MUT zur Praxis" (Courage to gain practical experience, German) bears witness to this. Students who wish to participate in our Master's programme, Fastlane, should have gained practical experience with us as interns or working students.
