Every year during the winter semester we organize an excursion to a different city where we visit relevant institutions or firms for economists. This allows you to know possible job positions for economists and gain insights on the work of professionals. Here you can have a look at former excursions.

Economic Internship

In the context of the MSE students can optionally attend an internship at renowned companies, economic research facilities or other (inter)national institutions (e.g. ZEW, DIW, IAB, Federal Ministry of Finance, German Federal Bank...) and get 5 ECTS for the internship.

Further information on placement and mentoring can be found at the Chair of Prof. Büttner.

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 will be at the ILO in Genf.

It is also possible to write your master's thesis with business or research partners.

Career Services

The Career Service at our School of Business and Economics supports you in the job search giving you advice concerning job applications. They offer seminars on application and career entry, soft skills trainings, presentations by organizations, counseling interviews and job fairs.
