Internships at the BMW Group.

Depending on your degree course, you can complete internships in a variety of fields. Through involvement in ongoing projects, you are able to gain valuable specialist expertise and hands-on project experience – in development and production, IT, administration, purchasing, sales and marketing, human resources, press and public relations or finance. We will agree on personal performance targets with you and meet on a regular basis to give you feedback on your personal development.

The longer you stay, the more involved you can become in interesting topics and the more you are able to develop valuable skills. Four to six months is ideal. Most of our internships are therefore posted for six months, on a full-time basis. A small number of short-term and part-time internships are also available. Candidates should allow at least two months for their internship. It is also possible to combine required and voluntary internships or an internship and a final thesis. The duration of a required internship is always geared towards the time period specified in your study regulations.

Do you plan to study engineering? Or have you already started the first part of your degree? Depending on your study guidelines, six to ten weeks is the ideal length for a required technical pre-degree internship. For the timing of your industrial internship, we are happy to comply with the requirements laid down in your examination rules.

Students who are enrolled at a university or a university of applied sciences or students who are currently between their bachelors and master studies, are eligible. When you apply for a technical pre-degree internship, please submit the examination rules of your preferred degree course. 

It is always worth submitting a speculative application for an internship via our online tool, the Job Assistant. Your application should reach us four months before the desired start date. All current internship vacancies in the various business sectors and locations can be found in our online job market for students.
