Career Center (CC)

Our Career Center supports all university students during their studies, as well as regarding job searches and career advice. We also work with companies looking to recruit new staff.

The CC organises seminars on topics such as job application training, presentation techniques or time management. It also provides individual counselling for students during their courses (including problems with motivation, abandoning studies, etc.), as well as during the transition from higher education to employment.

The seminars and advisory services involve no extra charges for our students. Our graduates are also welcome to utilise the services.

The Career Center administers several scholarships and other financial aid opportunities; they also manage Mannheim University of Applied Sciences’ Trainee Programme.
