The Gap Year in Accounting & Taxation

As part of the faculty of Business Administration, the Area Accounting & Taxation offers a wide range of internships and advanced training during the gap year. During the different internships, you can gain experience in the classic Accounting & Taxation department, controlling and management in an industrial group, specific M&A or financial service consulting. All internships have the expertise and personal bond of our company partners in common. This means that interns of our Gap Year in Accounting & Taxation work with personalities who are the best in their field and therefore get special insights, for example in the management of a DAX listed company or in the consulting of highly important mandates due to personal support from MaFAT-members and/or alumni of the University of Mannheim. Furthermore, we want to enable foreign assignments.

In short: The internships stand out in their class and have higher requirements than ordinary job offers.
