Creative Management Program

Scholars in the humanities and social sciences do not run businesses?!?

At Bertelsmann, we think differently about this! That is why we are offering a trainee program that is exclusively designed for humanists as well as social scientists and aims at preparing them for executive leadership. Within 20 months you will get to know different divisions of our company, both in Germany and in other European countries.
Do you have a master's degree in humanities, for example in social, political or media studies, linguistics and communication science, sociology or a journalistic course of study? Are you among the best graduates? Do you strive to perform management tasks in an international and creative setting? If so, the Creative Management Program is the perfect fit for you!

We are looking for scholars in the humanities and social sciences who want to shape tomorrow's media landscape with us.
