Work experience during your Master
The Master in Analytics & Artificial Intelligence program from ESMT Berlin puts you at the forefront of technology-driven disruption.
Today, all business processes are data driven. The projects built into the master curriculum give you the opportunities for real world access to cutting-edge theory to become a leader of business transformation through the use of state-of-the-art data and automation.
Explore your opportunities:
You can earn credits towards your degree by completing a mandatory internship between April and September of your first year of studies. The internship has a minimum duration of 12 weeks, but most students choose to do a longer internship of up to six months. ESMT's Career Services team helps you find the right opportunity and prepare professional and convincing applications for your chosen positions. Most students find their internships through a combination of engagement with ESMT's partners and open applications to companies of their choice.
Germany is the most popular location for internships; however, you are allowed to do the internship anywhere in the world. Other locations in the past included the Netherlands, Japan, Turkey, Switzerland, France, South Korea, and Kenya.

Portfolio Management Program
The Portfolio Management Program (PMP) is an extracurricular project outside the formal master curriculum in which, if selected, you will actively manage a real-money portfolio of 1 million Euros per group with a total portfolio value of 3 million Euros. The concept of the PMP enables you to combine theory and practice to develop real trading strategies on the open market.
You will actively conduct financial and economic research and analysis to understand the fundamentals of investing and asset management. This will help you develop the necessary skills to take this real-money portfolio and further develop a strategy to allocate and manage the funds.
