Page Overview: BMW Group - Careers - FastLane



If you want to proactively prepare yourself to take that next career step, you’ll need more than just an advanced qualification. That’s why our Fastane programme is geared to provide you with the in-depth practical work experience and the personal development opportunities you need to round out your studies – and perfectly position yourself to take that next step with us. As a successful candidate, you’ll also receive attractive financial support that will enable you to fully focus on your studies – and gain practical experience in cutting edge and innovative topics at the BMW Group. Within your last three semester you will develop your skills and get to know our company culture first-hand.

My personal highlight of the scholarship programme? Definitely learning from my personal mentor, building a network and getting insights in various job fields!

  • You will be doing your degree in a field compatible with the BMW Group – preferably in informatics, business informatics, industrial engineering, economics, mathematics, electrics/electronics or a comparable course of study
  • You have one and a half years remaining of your studies.
  • You will receive a monthly stipend for that duration.
  • You will be supported in your professional and personal development by an experienced mentor over the entire duration of the programme and together you will plan your practical work (at least two placements and your thesis) in various departments.
  • In various projects you will expand your theoretical knowledge with valuable experience and you will be able to quickly build up a network.
  • You will get connected with other scholars, prove your organizational and team skills and give proof of your social skills
