Internship as a Career Spring-Board. HHL Student Works in the Marketing Department of Dr. Oetker26.03.2014 - (idw) HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management
Internships are an essential part of the Master Program in Management's (M.Sc.) curriculum at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management
Studying abroad and internships are seen as essential cornerstones in career planning. To meet the students' individual requirements and career wishes HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management two years ago made it obligatory to study abroad at one of its 110 partner schools world wide and to do an internship.
Interns benefit from the skills and knowledge from their HHL studies
Julian Allendorf has just completed a 10-week internship at the international food company Dr. Oetker. The 23 year old M.Sc. student at HHL made contact for his internship in the marketing and distribution sector by participating in the Dr. Oetker talent Days in 2012. Julian Allendorf says about his experience during his time in Bielefeld, "I remember the orientation phase at Dr. Oetker as particularly positive. I saw concrete stages which I worked on later. Great, that I could initiate numerous informative conversations.That allowed me to get to know not only my department and the work of my colleagues but also the work of other departments such as research and development, market research and the Dr. Oetker Versuchsküche (test kitchen)." Besides supporting his team in the day-to-day business Julian Allendorf, who comes from Notuln near Munster, was also able to work on his own project during his internship. "The mixture of project work and day-to-day business was diverse and varied and therefore ideal to gain as much insight as possible in an international food company," says Julian Allendorf. During his internship he benefited from the skills and knowledge acquired in his studies."Especially the structured approach to problem solving learned at HHL, as well as the so called soft skills such as different presentation techniques, or working in mixed teams helped me at Dr. Oetker."
Important: The selection and interaction during an internship
Asked for a tip, Julian Allendorf says, "Personally, I would recommend students to take the selection of an internship seriously and to make that decision for a sector and company according to where their heart is at. During the internship they should get as much out of it as possible. Interns should not be afraid to ask questions, organize informative discussions, and to network with other interns and colleagues to stay in touch after the interneship."
Internship as a door opener for landing a job
Anett Hughes Manageress for Employer Relations/Career Service at HHL adds, "An internship during their studies provides most HHlers with a direct offer for a job after their studies. Therefore they benefit from high-profile company contacts and attractive entry perspectives."
Julian Allendorf will now continue his Masters course with a full class schedule at Germany's most traditional business school. Before his graduation in summer 2015, the HHLer, who receives funding from the German National Academic Foundation and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, plans to study abroad in South Africa and do another internship in the field of strategic consultancy. "I enjoy the diverse options offered by HHL. I will therefore only make my decision where to start a job close to my graduation."
HHL's English-language Master Program in Management (M.Sc.), which Julian Allendorf is enrolled in, is the foundation for future leadership tasks and covers a broad scope of economic topics. Building on a Bachelor's degree in Economics, HHl sets a high value on teaching soft skills - courses such as Problem Solving & Communication, Negotiation or International Management Competencies represent an inherent part of the training.

By choosing four electives the students can set a topical focus for the career to which they are aspiring.In addition to a term abroad at one of over 110 universities partnered with HHL, the curriculum of this program also encompasses an internship.
