AmCham US-German Internship Program

The American Chamber of Commerce in Germany (AmCham Germany) represents the interests of American and German companies in all economic sectors engaged in transatlantic business.  AmCham Germany and BridgehouseLaw have established the Internship Program to enable American students to spend time in Germany during the career planning phase of their early lives. Internships for American students are one of the best ways to develop young ambassadors who will bring a new and focused dynamic to the world around them after returning to the United States.

The Internship Program offers students the opportunity to become familiar with German culture through a three-month internship with a host company in different fields of the economy. As students will be working in a business environment, daily interactions with leading international firms will enable students to gain a better insight into the German economy, sharpen and improve their German language skills and engage with cross-cultural challenges helping to cultivate a better transatlantic repertoire between the United States and Germany.  Through daily interactions with their host company, students will become true ambassadors for the rapidly globalizing world around us in a time where a larger international perspective is necessary for both personal and cultural progression, as well as creating a better transatlantic relationship between the United States and Germany. The new platform provides students with ample opportunities to gain insight into the world’s economy, improve their German language skills, and enjoy cultural challenges.

Non-US and Non-EU citizens are welcome to participate in the program, but must inform themselves about the visa entry requirements for their nationality.  Applicants are expected to possess at least an intermediate knowledge of German
