Internship Opportunities


In today's competitive job market, experience matters. JYM can provide you with overseas internship experience through our extensive international network of business and public sector partners. If you are interested in obtaining internship experience while in Munich, JYM offers you several options.

Please note that Cultural Vistas Internships and ThyssenKrupp Steel Internships are the only internships that can be arranged in advance of your arrival in Munich.

Cultural Vistas Internships (6 cr.)

JYM has formed a partnership with Cultural Vistas (formerly CDS International and AIPT) that allows students to integrate credit-bearing internship experience with their academic schedule of coursework during the second semester (SoSe). Under this arrangement, students earn 6 credits for completion of JYG 5890 Overseas Internship. Open to full-year and second semester students only. (Details)

ThyssenKrupp Steel Internships (0 cr.)

Engineering students are invited to participate in our exclusive 8-week paid internship program with ThyssenKrupp Steel. Open to full-year and second semester students only. (Details)

Other Internships (0-3 cr.)

Many JYM students only decide once they are in Munich that they wish to take advantage of internship or service-learning opportunities.  In such cases, JYM’s extensive network of contacts has allowed us to help students find learning experiences in the fields of marketing, publishing, education, the automotive industry, health care, e-commerce, government, foreign service, international trade, and economic development consultancy.  With prior approval from their advisor, and submission of an Internship Portfolio (PDF), students may earn up to 3 credits for completion of JYG 5890 Overseas Internship.

Please note: This option is only available to students on the full-year program. Information about possible openings is provided during Orientation and throughout the year. This type of internship option consists of two modules. As part of the curriculum, students hone their language skills during the first semester and meet regularly with the Resident Director to plan their internship project and application strategy. During the second semester students complete the practical part of their internship project, including the production of an Internship Portfolio if credit for JYG 5890 is desired. Because of the nature of this option, the possibility of an internship can not be arranged nor guaranteed in advance of the students' arrival in Munich.
