Economic Internship Module

In the context of the MSE students are encouraged to undertake an internship at renowned companies, economic research facilities or other (inter)national institutions. Past MSE students did their internship for example at ZEW, DIW, IAB, UniCredit, Federal Ministry of Finance or German Federal Bank.

If the internship is related to economic, the internship module allows to gain 5 ECTS towards your degree from the internship. For further information on internship opportunities and the internship module please contact the responsible professor for the specialisation area of your interest.


Internships at International Organizations (e.g., ILO, EBRD) can be supported with a stipend of the Staedler-Stiftung. See the previous application announcement. You can read the report of the current stipend awardee! She was at the ILO in Genf. A newsparer article on the internship is here.
