Recruiter – Bayer

Università Cattolica is an important resource to find potential candidates for internship opportunities and professional experiences. Its diverse and well organized academic curricula meet the demand of skills and competences which are fundamental to work in a company.
An ongoing dialogue between the University and the company not only enhances the development of a common language and the understanding of mutual needs, but it also identifies collaborative spaces that contribute to the professional and personal growth of young people.

UCSC has a plus compared to many other universities: the Double Degree Program. This program provides the opportunity to live university life in a network of international students, integrating the academic career in Italy with two years of experience abroad, during which students not only improve their language skills, but they also become part of the place they live in. UCSC thus combines perfectly two aspects that are fundamental for a multinational enterprise: the international dimension and the training

Mark Langer – CEO – Hugo Boss AG

I especially value the professional qualifications of ESB Business School’s students, which they demonstrate every day in the work they do so successfully at our company. The international orientation of the degree programmes at ESB Business School pays most notably in multicultural projects that we frequently have to manage working across disciplines.
In the meantime we have several alumni who have assumed management responsibilities in our company.
