The Gap Year in Business Studies (BWL)

For students, the transition from a Bachelor's to a Master's degree is an ideal time to gain practical experience and to orientate themselves  professionally. Thus, we offer you both a structured and individually tailored Gap Year in business studies (BWL) for students, including several different internships with various companies. The Gap Year can be completed in different areas of specialisation which include Accounting & Taxation, Finance and Operations Management. Therefore, during the Gap Year, students get to know all aspects of the field of business studies, such as consulting, management, controlling etc. The three internships each span over a four month period. Additionally, the Gap Year is complemented by a varied academic program which takes place at the University of Mannheim.
