Practice-oriented Seminars and Events

The Office for Practice and Transfer organizes various events, seminars and workshops with direct practical relevance throughout the academic year with different actors from practice and science. Some events have a fixed time slot each year, others are offered once on specific dates. Some formats are linked to the awarding of credits (General Studies for Bachelor students or elective modules for Master students).

An overview is given in the figure on the left.

Formats that recur every year include

  • the Career Camp (3 CP - one week end of March/beginning of April)
  • the PRAXIS Summer Camp (6 CP - three weeks in August) and
  • the Faculty Career Day (second Wednesday in November).

The Career Camp is THE networking format of the University of Bremen, an intensive career week, for the promotion of career entry, career orientation and the development of career-relevant soft skills. Organized by the Department of Business and Economics, this year's event will once again bring together prospective graduates from a wide range of disciplines with companies and other potential employers in the region, as well as throughout Germany.

There will be insights into various industries and lectures presenting the latest trends in the world of work and information on career development. There will also be exclusive workshops for individual advancement in the areas of career orientation, profile sharpening, job applications and new work. Also integrated is a career networking evening, where students and companies can exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. Furthermore, excursions to selected companies are offered.

The PRAXIS Summer Camp is an offer in the elective area of General Studies (Industry Specific Career Orientation I: 6 CP) as well as an elective module of the master programme in Business Studies. Usually it takes place directly after the examination period in the summer semester.

It is an intensive 3-week event, in which up to 15 companies bring in specific project tasks, which are handled by student teams (max 5 students). As a rule, most of the work is done directly in the company. While the opening and closing events are fixed dates in plenum, the project duration in between is individually coordinated in the teams, together with the companies. At the final event, the project results of all teams will be presented. Not only undergraduate students of business administration are welcome, but also students of our cooperative study programs and of computer science as well as corresponding master's programs. Even if a recognition in the study course can not take place, then all participants receive a participation certificate at the end. If this event is successfully completed, this module can be listed as an additional service in the final certificate.

Due to a limit of 50 participating students early registration is recommended. Representatives of various industries are represented. So far representatives from Abat, Encoway, EWE Vertrieb, Hmmh, KAEFER, STUTE and We4IT

Students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of planning, designing, implementing and evaluating events using the example of an event to be carried out in real life.

Note: It is possible that this event will take place beyond the regular event time. Therefore, the regular learning and examination period will be taken into account. However, regular attendance up to the start and during the execution of the event is expected.

Modulbeschreibung

The small but nice career fair of the faculty, which always opens its doors on the 2nd Wednesday in November from 10:00 - 15:00. Up to 15 companies and other potential employers introduce themselves to you at their booths and some also offer career-related lectures on the day. It will take place under normal circumstances in the WIWI1 building, 1st level. Under pandemic conditions, it will switch to a virtual format.

This fair is targeted to students of all study programmes, including cooperation study programmes of the faculties of mathematics/computer sciences (FB 03) as well as of the faculty of production engineering (FB 04).

The career networking evening was first successfully held in 2016 and is a career event which is offered not frequently. On this evening, 50 students will have the opportunity to network with 10 companies in a relaxed atmosphere with finger food and drinks. The number of companies and students is deliberately limited to give everyone the opportunity to interact extensively with various company representatives. This can be about finding an internship or even getting into the job. Not only students of BWL/WIWI are welcome, but also students of our cooperation programs and computer science. Early registration is advised. So far representatives from Abat, Allos Hofmanufaktur, BLG, BTC, Capgemini, HEC, KPMG, Kuehne & Nagel, Uzuner Colsulting and Vitakraft will be in attendance.

A career networking evening is a fixed part within the career camp and is additionally offered on demand by companies.

Which concrete practice-relevant individual courses (without CP allocation) are offered in the current semester can always be viewed via Stud.IP (course "Studienbegleitprogramm") via StudIP.

Practice-relevant courses (with CP allocation), organised by the Office for Practice and Transfer, are announced in the General Studies area (Bachelor) or in the elective module area (Master).

These and many more practice-relevant events by companies and other cooperation partners are announced and advertised via our career portal "7Careers" or Instagram.
