On to Munich

The Global Leaders group arrived at BMW’s headquarters in Munich to learn from students enrolled in various tracks of dual education and training. BMW provides 2-3 years of onsite training for student employees in engineering and mechatronic fields. Seen here is a small group of students, who are learning basic machining. Another photo shows a dual engine (gas and battery power hybrid) racing car another group of students recently built.

BMW also has a junior company of first year students who spend 2-3 months in each department of the company, from quality control to finance to HR. This division of BMW is responsible for developing promotional items and handling special customer orders. Last year, their revenues totaled 1 million €. In total BMW has more than 3,000 student trainees in Munich. About 95% will go on to be full employees at the end of their study programs.
