Apply now and gain initial professional experience in Asia

Elite career promotion programme

Bonn/Eschborn, 11. August 2016. If you are looking to gather professional experience next year where economies are at their most dynamic, now is the time to act. The deadline to apply for the Heinz Nixdorf Programme in Asia is 30 September 2016.

For 20 years, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has been working on behalf of the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation to provide young professionals, graduates and students with a chance to hone their practical skills in international business. By completing a four-month internship in one of eight Asian countries, they can gain an insight into foreign economic and education systems while learning to think in global terms and promoting mobility. Next year, more than 30 young Germans will again have the opportunity to visit China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan or Viet Nam and to add this prestigious qualification to their junior management profile.

To prepare for the internship, successful candidates attend language courses in Germany and in the host country along with intercultural seminars. The Heinz Nixdorf Foundation also funds grants to cover participants’ living costs abroad. If you are interested in taking part in the programme and have a university-level degree in a technical or commercial subject, you can apply until 30 September 2016.
