Beiersdorf International Internship Challenge 2018

The 2018 Beiersdorf International Internship Challenge is open. Once a year, Beiersdorf hosts the International Internship Challenge at their Corporate Headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. In the International Internship Challenge Beiersdorf is searching for top international students for internships at their subsidiaries around the world.

Beiersdorf International Internship Challenge

They invite 32 top international students to compete for four fully-funded international internships. In 2018 they are excited to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the event on September 13/14. Are you up for the challenge?


During your two-day visit you’ll not only find out how we come up with innovative skincare products and strong brands like NIVEA, Eucerin and Hansaplast but you will also witness the interaction between different departments such as research and development, marketing, finance and supply chain management. You’ll be introduced to employees from a wide variety of disciplines and work jointly with other finalists on current FMCG topics in the skincare business.

Win an international internship

You will be able to show them your abilities across a variety of activities in the 2-day-event. The four strongest applicants will win a fully-funded international internship at one of their 150 subsidiaries across the globe or at their Corporate Headquarters in Germany. They’ll decide jointly with the winners where to go.


Just imagine, you could spend three months in 2019 with the marketing department in Bangkok, at their production site in Chile or with the controlling team in the USA.




A small hint: Please apply only for one position – your first choice. Throughout the application you will get the chance to mention other areas of interest.
