"Writing my bachelor thesis and working consecutively as an intern at Henkel’s Laundry & Home Care M&A/Transactions department was a great experience, I gladly look back on. During my thesis time I was able to apply concepts learnt within my studies and gain insights from the practice. Henkel and, in particular, my mentors perfectly supported me with first-hand information and various interviews with executives.
The ability to independently work on tasks and to help on current M&A projects while gaining knowledge about commercial due diligence and M&A distinguish this internship. In particular, working with Laundry & Home Care's corporate venturing intitiative provided me with invaluable hands-on insights about the VC and entrepreneurial industry and offered me room for own actions. Most of the time, I was albe to directly see the impact of my work. I especially enjoyed the international and performance-diven culture at Henkel, noticeable also at all the different events of the internship community.
I can definitely recommend Henkel and my department for further internships or thesis cooperations due to its collaborative and supporting spirit."
