Additional career-related information.

WHU has strong connections with over 160 partner companies across a wide range of sectors. Last year, nearly 60 companies in consulting, banking and financial services, large industry and services, German small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and start-ups participated in our events on Campus Vallendar.

Most top-tier consultancies and investment banks recruit here every year, and several large industrials regularly participate in our career fairs. Companies also support student events such as Campus for Finance and other “Campus for” conferences, forumWHU, IdeaLab!, and SensAbility.

Our dedicated Career Center strives to facilitate a variety of events to encourage interactions between companies, alumni, and students. Last year, over 80% of Master students completed a summer internship at a company that attended a campus event or post offers to the WHU job database. These internships range across industries, companies, and locations depending on individual interests and needs. 

Master Your Career at the end of January is an event reserved for our long-time partner companies, mostly in industry and services. Primarily aimed at Master and MBA students, this fair offers more sophisticated networking formats including workshops and a dinner. 2019’s attendees were Accenture Strategy, A.T. Kearney, BASF, Beiersdorf, Henkel, METRO, Telekom, and XING. Participating companies receive access to our online database of student CVs.

International graduates who complete university-level education in Germany and are seeking gainful employment post-graduation are eligible for a jobseeker’s visa. Thus, they are able to stay in Germany for up to 18 months to seek employment relating to their qualifications.

Naturally, in a German speaking country, the majority of jobs will require German language skills. However there are more and more opportunities available for English speakers, depending on the industry and region.

All top-tier consultancies and most banks require business fluency; some specialized consultancies will consider candidates with solid but not fluent German. Select business areas, such as transaction advisory, or more specialized financial services firms may hire students with limited German skills. Large industrial companies and medium-sized “hidden champions” that compete globally may also be flexible, depending on the company, sector, and functional area. Start-ups, especially in Berlin, are often open to those with limited German.

It is possible to become business fluent in German during the three-year program, but requires a lot of discipline. WHU offers free German courses for students at various levels. Improving your German as much as possible is imperative if you plan to stay here after graduation, as every increase will open more employment opportunities. An additional option for international students is to take an intensive German course after graduation.

Our alumni are active across all industries including consulting, banking and financial services, industry and services, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and family business, as well as some in non profit organizations, public service, and academia. WHU has a strong history of entrepreneurship and we count a large number of founders among our alumni. While the majority of our alumni live in Germany, the WHU alumni network covers more than 65 countries across six continents.

While the starting salary of a recent graduate may vary, again depending on industry and region. However the average Master graduate can expect a starting salary of €61,100, with 59% of graduates earning over €60,000.
