SO MUCH DOING ISN´T DOABLE AT JUST ANY COMPANY.
These days it’s invaluable to get practical experience early on – it can be a deciding factor in your career. Be it an internship, a thesis or a working student employment, during a practical employment with us you’ll be sure to discover your talents early on. And since we need active support in lots of different departments, you’ll be taking on responsibility for all kinds of challenging tasks and projects, and get the opportunity to show us what you’re made of.
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.
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.
Apprenticeship and study opportunities at the BMW Group.
As a working student you are employed as part of one of our teams over a longer term and thus have the opportunity of gaining a solid understanding of our working practices. This provides you with a good overview to guide you in your later career. This is why employment as a working student is a valuable and meaningful addition to your studies. For instance, why not remain in touch with us after your mandatory internship and assist us in our daily work or with projects. You retain flexibility with regard to your work schedule as you can mutually agree your working times with your department.
You learn from us – we learn from you. The BMW Group can offer you expert practice-related support in writing your diploma, Bachelor's or Master's thesis.
In all BMW Group divisions you can demonstrate how you would like to create a sustainable future. You can find a selection of interesting topics, the relevant locations and divisions in our online job finder. You are welcome to propose a topic or subject area to us via a speculative application. Please apply online only.
The reimbursed contract period for your thesis is determined by the working time specified in your university's examination regulations.
