Looking for an insider's perspective on Europe's largest economy? Berlin offers booming tech firms, non-profits and multinational companies where you can expand your business portfolio. A summer internship in Berlin offers a unique professional opportunity in a city of larger-than-life architecture, vibrant nightlife, and friendly, English-speaking locals.
GET TO KNOW SOME OF THE BERLIN'S YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
through an internship in a city that, in 2015, generated the most venture capital for young startup companies in Europe.
PAY YOUR RESPECTS AT THE HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL
and visit the amazing Museum Island, named for the complex of five internationally significant museums.
EXPLORE BERLIN'S CITY LIFE

German workers are the most productive in the world—that’s according to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. A competitive mindset and strong communication style contribute to the success of the German economy, Europe’s largest and the perfect environment for a rewarding internship. Add to that Berlin’s culture rich in the arts, music and history and you have a compelling backdrop—and rich counterbalance—to your challenging internship experience.
