Beiersdorf International Internship Challenge

Once a year we host our Beiersdorf International Internship Challenge at our Corporate Headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. We invite 30 top international students to compete for three fully-funded international internships. Are you up for the challenge?

Explore the world of skincare

During your two-day visit you’ll not only find out how we come up with innovative skincare products strong brands like NIVEA, Eucerin and Hansaplast but you will also witness the interaction between different departments such as research and development, marketing, finance and supply chain management. You’ll be introduced to employees from a wide variety of disciplines and work jointly with other applicants on FMCG case studies in our skincare segment.

Win an international internship

We’re looking for students who can demonstrate their abilities across a variety of selection activities. The three strongest applicants will win a fully-funded international internship at one of our 150 subsidiaries across the globe or at our Corporate Headquarters in Germany. If you’re successful we’ll decide with you where you’ll go. Just imagine, you could spend three months in 2016 at our production site in Mexico City, with the marketing department in Bangkok or with the controlling team in the USA.
