State Programme "Partner von morgen 2020-2022”

12.05.2021 -

Are you an international student or graduate at an university or college in Saxony-Anhalt? Then you now have the chance to complete an internship in a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME)! The "Partner von morgen" programme is funded by the Ministry of Economics, Science and Digitalisation of Saxony-Anhalt.

Since the start of the programme, many international students have already been able to gain work experience and thus spice up their CVs. Internships are offered in many different fields and specialisations. By participating in the programme, you can enrich the intercultural competences of the companies and thus promote the internationalisation of Saxony-Anhalt's economy.

Are you interested? Then send us your CV to d.voigt@expert-pm.de and we can get to know each other personally.

You don't have time at the moment, but would still like to stay up to date? Then join our Facebook group "Partner von morgen 2020-2022".

For your information, you can find the programme flyer of "Partner von morgen" here .
