Good internship opportunities at RWTH Business School
Tips: The scope of internships and work for students are quite high, particularly in Business School. The course (M.Sc DDS) is not designed for people with prior experience in the field, it covers basics in detail. The focus on self study is higher than what is taught in the classes.
