Five strong businesses, four exclusive internships. It’s a difficult choice – and one we will leave up to you: just tell us your wish list of the participating firms during the application process. In any case, we guarantee you an internship at your first priority. We will assign you another three internships – but don’t worry, you will get at least three of your four priorities.
In addition to the internships, you will also benefit from training and mentoring opportunities as well as joint events that will offer you the platform for meeting employees from all the companies as well as other program participants.
