During your stay abroad, which lasts several weeks, you will get to know other cultures, improve your foreign language skills and gain your first international work experience.

"Through the business administrator apprenticeship, I got the opportunity to spend a whole year abroad with the help of the "business administrator+" project. I was able to gain valuable experience as a result; in the world of work, as well as in linguistic and personal matters. With an apprenticeship, all doors are open to you."


Mission possible! Once you have successfully completed your apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity to work at one of our international locations for six months. The aim is to get to know new people, countries and cultures, develop an understanding of other people’s ways of working and discover the joy of lifelong learning.

"I applied for the scholarship because I was particularly interested in getting to know new people and foreign cultures. Through the stay abroad, I was able to improve my English skills and gain valuable experience from which I still benefit in my professional life today."
