A practical approach based on working together on projects: This is one of the core principles of BiTS. The cooperative arrangements in place with our partners create synergies for both parties – students and firms – for example in the form of hands-on collaboration. The BiTS Forum provides a platform for fostering close contact between our partners and alumni even after they complete their studies.
In addition to regular contact in the course of project work, the annual BiTS Day of the Entrepreneur provides a lively framework for in-depth, person-to-person talks between the university and businesses. The recruiting event “BiTS exklusiv” facilitates sustained contact between students and decision-makers in human resources. Both events are open to all interested firms and are a good opportunity to get to know the relevant parties in the university or join the BiTS network.
The cooperation with 1. FC Union Berlin soccer club aims to recruit young people passionate about sport as employees of the club. 1. FC Union Berlin and BiTS University of Business Leadership jointly endeavor to address the current skills shortage and train talented and motivated employees of tomorrow.

Applied projects such as shadowing in event management of the club, ticketing, as well as marketing and market research are planned, where students can demonstrate their abilities. All parties have the opportunity to get to know each other within the framework of joint events, lectures, student placements, or internal seminar assignments.

The program’s content is tailored under the LSE Custom Programme, and a 12-week internship in London offers you the unique opportunity to apply in practice the theory you have learned during your studies.
