We value sustainable cooperations and know how important our partnerships are! They ensure regional innovation, applied research, and our practice-oriented academic teaching!

Private and institutional partners have many possibilities to commit skills, knowledge, financial means, and time to the areas of education, research, and knowledge transfer. Our formats range from personnel recruiting, entrepreneurship and application-oriented research to the cooperative development of dual programs and continuing education programs.

The internship semester – efficient preparation for working life

Every year we send 500 Bachelor students on internships to a cooperating business partner of their choice. In the internship semester, which is firmly anchored in the student programs as a compulsory module, our partners efficiently prepare students for their future professional work in business and administration.

At the moment this affects the programs

Before, during, and after the internship semester, our students are guided and supported by their professors and specially trained employees.

* This Bachelor program is offered in conjunction with Faculty 2. In terms of the BPS, special regulations apply. To Faculty 2.

A dual Bachelor program at the Frankfurt UAS combines the teaching of theoretical knowledge and skills at the university with application and internalization during internship phases with the cooperating businesses. The significance of the dual profile lies in exactly this combination, which allows students to connect their academic program with their professional qualification and thus generate efficiency increases for both.

  • Public Administration
  • Taxation
  • Tourism
  • Aviation

there is a possibility to cooperate with us and bring suitable students together with our existing dual Bachelor programs:

As partner for a dual program, the cooperating business works together with us while fusing theory and practice over the duration of a three-year Bachelor program. In each semester, a theoretical phase at the Frankfurt UAS alternates with an internship phase at the cooperation partner of their choice, which they will conclude with a internship or project report, in some cases with presentation.
Internship and project reports are guided and evaluated by the respective institution or a business.

90 % of the dual students of the Frankfurt UAS sign an employment contract with the businesses immediately after receiving their degree. This does away with extended onboarding periods for the companies and cost-intensive trainee programs for the recruiting phases.

  • Application and internalization of technical know-how
  • Getting to know processes and structures of businesses
  • Optimal preparation for later professional work
  • Self-reliant acceptance of responsibilities and projects
  • Sharpening own interest in certain work areas
  • Targeted preparation for managing tasks and challenges in different business areas
  • Connection to the businesses
  • Knowledge transfer through communication with the businesses
  • Networking
  • Cooperation in teaching and research

Workshops of businesses with students – because direct contact creates connections

Bernd Müller-Dauppert, member of the Executive Board, Miebach Consulting GmbH in Frankfurt am Main

"For five years now, there has been an intensive working relationship between the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and our company, Miebach Consulting. We are a consulting business specialized in logistics and supply-chain management that has headquarters in Frankfurt am Main and offices in another 24 offices around the world. As a consulting business, the collaboration with competent research partners and the recruiting of university graduates with an outstanding education is extremely important to us. The Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences has greatly helped us with this. The opportunity of getting to know potential consultants intensively during a five-month internship semester is very interesting to us and it also offers the students exciting insights into the project work of a logistics consultant. Another very helpful aspect for the selection of suitable candidates is the possibility to have direct contacts with the students as adjunct lecturer in order to awaken or reinforce their interest in logistics. Student days such as the Logistics and Mobility Congress, which we like to support with company stands, round out this collaboration. This creates a perfect way to interconnect theory and practice."

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in collaborating with us. We are always ready to listen – and are open to new ideas for the cooperation.
