FAQs.

We assess all qualifications in total and rate them against one another. Thus, if you for example have less experience abroad but therefore more practical experience or very good grades, we would still be happy to receive your application.

All open GLDP positions will be posted on this website. Usually, there are more places than job ads as the positions are grouped into individual clusters. The precise number of positions is aligned to the demand of the company and different departments and can therefore vary.

The GLDP is suitable for both bachelor's and master's graduates from corresponding fields of study. However, the master's degree is preferred.

As a trainee you receive a permanent employment contract right from the beginning at the BMW Group. Consequently, the regulations of the part-time and fixed-term employment act (“Teilzeit- und Befristungsgesetz”) do not apply.

The required experience abroad amounts to a stay abroad of at least 4 months. The stay can have taken place within the framework of a semester abroad, through practical experience abroad or a work & travel experience.

It is very important to us to make the selection process as simple and fast as possible for our applicants. Therefore, we inform all applicants immediately about the status as soon as the application has been reviewed. However, due to the large number of positions and applications, it can sometimes take a while before the first response is received. Details on deadlines and time frames can be found in the application process chart on this website.

You can have a part-time job or start your own business. However, both must be officially registered with and approved by HR.

The goal of the Fastlane programme is to be taken on as a master's graduate in an employment relationship with the BMW Group – not as a trainee.

You can find specific information about this on this website. Please also have a look on our application process chart.

Our decision is based on a comprehensive and objective consideration of all factors. The online test, together with your grades and other application documents, is part of our pre-selection process. On this basis, we decide in a first step who could be considered for our positions with their skills and qualifications. If you for example have less experience abroad but therefore more practical experience or very good grades, we would still be happy to receive your application as we assess all qualifications in total and rate them against one another. Please note that we cannot consider your application in the further selection process without the online test.

As you start in a permanent employment relationship with the BMW Group, the remuneration is based on the applicable collective agreements.

You will start as a permanent employee with the BMW Group. Various modules during the GLDP will help you find a suitable position afterwards. You will – for example – build a large network that you can later draw on, and benefit from professional as well as personal growth.

You can also apply for the GLDP during your master's programme before you have received your final grade. However, you must have completed your studies by the time the programme starts.

Our programmes are managed centrally from Munich. Events such as semester workshops and seminars also take place there. Nevertheless, we encourage our participants to complete practical assignments at our other locations (Leipzig, Berlin, Eisenach, Regensburg, Dingolfing, Landshut). These are planned in consultation with the mentors and in consideration of the respective interests of our programme participants. During the trainee programme, two out of four practical assignments will also take place abroad.

After the end of the programme, all doors in our company are open to you. However, you are not contractually obliged to stay with the BMW Group.

For me, my current placement is one of the coolest within the BMW Group in general. We're a super dynamic team with really motivated people working on topics like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

I worked as a trainee in Electric Powertrain Development. My highlight during the programme definitely was being part of the development of the BMW iX.
