Job Market Coaching Business Studies

In June 2020, the second IQ qualification measure for immigrant academics who have studied economics and/or worked in finance in their countries of origin will start.

The qualification measure "Job Market Coaching Business Studies (BWL)" provides job-seeking immigrant economists a vocational orientation for entering the German labour market. What activities are carried out in the economic professions? What skills are required on the labour market and are expected of employers in the financial sector? Which key figures are recorded in accounting, for example? What role does digitisation play in the financial world of work? What do employers expect from employees in a solution-oriented project management?

The coaching starts in June 2020 and ends in August 2020 and takes place in the Bonn region. In the subsequent intensive application phase, the participants will visit the Cologne job fair on 12.09.2020 and thus expand their employer contacts.

Further information on the learning content and the course design can be found in the information sheet.

People who have completed a business or economics degree in their country of origin can now apply in writing using the application form and send their documents to

Application deadline: 22.05.2020 (receipt of application documents at OBS)
