Companies have very good reasons for connecting with our Business School. On the one hand, we provide professionally excellent management trainees. On the other hand, companies profit from our research findings. Research thrives on collaboration with company representatives, because only research questions relevant to practice deliver results that are useful for the daily business of the corporate world.
Our Business School works with companies at different levels: we collaborate with our business partners on research projects, educational events and career-related opportunities for our students. Our partner companies support us with advice on strategic decisions and are involved in the restructuring and development of academic programs. Thus, we can guarantee content that is relevant to practice and bring our students into contact with companies at an early stage.
We especially appreciate that students from the University of Mannheim bring along the right balance between high commitment and social responsibility. Many graduates of the University of Mannheim Business School are now working for our brands NIVEA, Eucerin or Hansaplast at the Beiersdorf headquarter in Hamburg – via direct employment, a trainee program or internship.
Every year, we come to the campus of the University of Mannheim in order to raise enthusiasm for Würth among talents through workshops and guest lectures. Over the course of the last years, we have already been able to win several graduates over for diverse roles within the entire world of Würth. As a graduate of the University of Mannheim myself, I am of course looking forward to these recruitment events – it always feels like a small homecoming.
We’ve had a lot of success with students from Mannheim. They are educationally absolutely up to the level where we want them to be, well prepared and professional. The people that study here are also down to earth and they are ready for the challenges that we present them. That mix is what convinces us to continue to hire from here.
No matter whether you need help finding an internship, tips for an application or job information – the Career Network at the University of Mannheim offers students and companies plenty of information about career and vocation.
