The Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Global Economic Dynamics project is seeking an intern with a focus on macroeconomics for a period of 3 to 6 months.


What former interns say:


My internship as part of the GED project has been an amazing experience as much for my personal and professional development.  Surrounded by a considerate, encouraging and highly skilled team, I have had the chance to work independently on extremely challenging and exciting issues with a real and significant impact!

An internship at the GED project is no ordinary work experience. Trusted with responsibilities and offered professional prospect, my stay at the Stiftung proved a defining time in my curriculum.

Also, the pay is good and you might get to fly a plane.

Interning with the Global Economic Dynamics Project was an excellent experience. Right from the beginning, I could work independently on very interesting tasks and was supported at all times by the team.

The GED team members take a real interest in your professional development and are highly competent in their respective areas, too. If you want to feel the pulse of the macroeconomic world, work with top people on exciting topics and get entrusted with real work right from the beginning, the GED project might be the right place for you.

Working for the GED Project was a fantastic opportunity for me. The team works on the most interesting current issues and you’ll be able to contribute as a full team member right from the start
