Partner Companies

Students who are enrolled at iba | University of Cooperative Education work at a partner company while obtaining their bachelor’s degrees. At these partner companies, students receive on-the-job practical training and profit from the experience of their co-workers.

iba currently cooperates with more than 1,800 partner companies. Please contact us for more information about current job vacancies within the framework of our integrated work-study programmes. Your student counsellor will assist you in finding a partner company. You can also apply at the company of your choice on your own initiative.

"What do students learn in their company for their future professional life?

The most distinctive feature is, without a doubt, the generalist education of our students.
In the Human Resources (HR) department, for example, our students get to work in all areas related to modern personnel work: management & administration, HR marketing, recruitment and people & organisational development.

This way, we guarantee the best possible training and provide our students the space and opportunity to identify their own personal strengths within the different areas of work.

This, in my opinion, is the ideal preparation for the demands and requirements of today’s job market within HR.”
