Wayne State students of German who study in Germany with the Junior Year in Munich program become strong candidates for a wide range of internships, including marketing, publishing, the automotive industry, global supply chain management, health care, e-commerce, economic development, government, and foreign service. The skills Wayne State students acquired overseas – advanced German language proficiency and intercultural communication competence – are highly valued in today's global economy and have helped them find employment after graduation.

Students interested in internships and employment opportunities with German should contact Prof. Mark Ferguson (mark.ferguson@wayne.edu)
