Thanks to the internship integrated by the IUBH in your studies, you have the opportunity of trying out your academic knowledge outside the classroom.
You will also get to know the industry and its various specialisations – the perfect basis for your career choice.

  • The internship lasts a whole semester
  • Forge your first contacts in industry
  • Include the internship as an important element in your CV
  • Make the most of the opportunity of being taken on after graduation by a company from our industry network

Extra Curriculum

Another opportunity to gain practical experience: Extra Curriculum is an optional component of the study programme, and is offered during the first semester.

The programme contains the following:

  • Workshops and conferences on and off campus on a variety of topics
  • Guest lectures by experts from industry and from the aviation sector
  • Excursions to industry-specific companies, for example destination agencies
    or airports
