Credit conversion for an internship for master's degree students in applied statistics; development economics; finance, accounting, and taxes; international economics; marketing and channel management


In the above mentioned master's degree programmes, under certain conditions, credit can be awarded for internships that begin after 1 October 2015.
The conditions for recognizing internships for credit are outlined in the adjacent document "Rules for the completion of the course M.WIWI-WB.1000 (internship)" (see right-hand column).

You must submit several documents to the Faculty of Economic Sciences Dean's Office or Student Advisory Office both before and after the internship:

  • 1. Before the internship:
    An application to have the internship recognized (see right-hand column) is due approximately six weeks before the internship begins. It must be submitted to the Faculty of Economic Sciences Student Advisory Office along with the host institution's internship programme, which should outline the content of the internship as well as a rough timeline.
  • 2. After the internship:
    After completing the internship, submit the approved application form (from above) with an internship report or review of your work from your host institution. Your contact person in the host institution has to sign the report before you hand it in.
    The specific details and requirements are stipulated in the adjacent document "Rules for the completion of the course M.WIWI-WB.1000 (internship)" (see right-hand column).



Please carefully read the requirements for converting internships into credit. If all the conditions are met, you will be able to receive six credits for the course "M.WIWI-BWL.1000 Praktikum", which does not include a grade.
