Empowering the Next Generation

Owing to demographic change and growing competition for specialists and executives, the attraction of the employer has moved to the forefront of strategic human resources activities. DZ HYP decided to take early action against the shortage of skilled young talent: some years ago, we developed an 18-month trainee programme that offers vocational training for qualified university graduates.

In addition to our trainee programme, we also offer a three-year dual study programme, leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Banking & Finance and a five-year programme lading to a Master of Science in Banking & Finance – a second pillar to attract young talent. After two and a half years of Bachelors’ studies, participants may also take the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) examination. In 2017, we were able to successfully transfer one dual student to a fixed-term contract of employment.

In addition to these programmes, we give young people the opportunity to get to know DZ HYP through internships or student clerkships. We further support students in their academic (thesis) work.

To help refugees integrate into German society and help them get an understanding of German professional life, in 2016 we committed to offering two internships for a period of two years. In 2017, a young woman from Afghanistan was provided with a three-week placement at DZ HYP.
