Fishing for Experience

Would you like to gain useful experience in preparation for your career by means of a bona fide business project alongside your studies? If you would, then Fishing for Experience has plenty to offer. You will become acquainted with entrepreneurial issues and will work on them in interdisciplinary project groups of around eight people. In the process you will apply the specialized knowledge you have learned, you will learn project management in practical use, and you may be able to make initial professional contacts for your future career.

Please note: Some of the descriptions of the projects are in German, because for participation, at least German knowledge of Level B1 is required, better would be B2. In individual cases, it can be possible to participate with a lower German level - please feel free to contact us directly!
