IUBH Career Services
For a good start
Internships and professional experience in general, are becoming more and more important and are almost taken for granted by many HR officials.
In opposition to this, many newly created bachelor and master courses make it difficult for students to integrate an internship into their studies without „loosing" a semester. Therefore, internships form an integral part of the academic study programmes at the IUBH School of Business and Management.
The internship is designed to enable students to gain insight into operations and management in their industry. It gives students the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge, and gain practical experience and soft skills within a relatively limited period of time. For all bachelor study programmes, students must complete one internship of at least 22 weeks. Students in the international double bachelor programs are required to complete their internship abroad, the others in the country of their choice.
Our Career Services team provides assistance in finding an internship, and maintains contact with top-level companies in all areas in which students carry out internships, e.g. hotels, resorts, clubs, tour operators, trade fair and congress centers, event and marketing companies, airports and airlines, carriers, transport businesses and other service providers.
As the internship is part of the academic education process at the IUBH, each student participates in an Internship Information Session at the beginning of the semester before they start their internship. During and after the internship, the students will be in regular contact with Career Services and the academic personnel of the university.
Our additional trainings and personal consultations for students preparing for their internships or applying for jobs (interview trainings, application trainings, etc.) complete the range of services offered by Career Services. All trainings, information sessions and personal consultations are meant to support our students during their self-reliant search and the application process for internships and jobs.
Career Services strongly recommends all students to make use of the vast networking possibilities at the IUBH. By organising company presentations, where possible employers and partners get the chance to present themselves and get in touch with our students, and especially by hosting the annual job fair „Career Days" on campus, Career Services provides the necessary infrastructure for our committed students from all over the world.
