Glasford International Germany expands its network
We, Glasford International Germany, are pleased to announce that we are now collaborating with the Munich Business & Finance Club (Munich BFC) and the University of Applied Management in Ismaning (HAM). By engaging in a partnership with those two organizations, we have gained access to a broad student network. In the future, both students and Glasford International Germany will benefit greatly from the exchange. Through joint projects with Munich students and recruitment opportunities, Glasford International Germany is strengthening its position as an attractive employer in Munich.
Following a detailed description of our two collaborations and their services:
Munich Business & Finance Club (Munich BFC)
Founded in 2020 the Munich Business & Finance Club (Munich BFC) is a student association (e. V.) that offers its members an interdisciplinary exchange on subjects such as economy, capital markets and stocks. By being part of the platform students can unlock their full potential and prepare themselves for the world of work and career in the best possible way. Furthermore, members of the Munich BFC enhance their academic expertise and simultaneously acquire new practical skills. The student club strives to close the gap between theory and practice from which members, academic institutes and partner companies benefit.
The main mission of the student club is built upon six pillars: platform, workshops, networking, talent pool, investment, and stock market plenary sessions.
The Munich BFC platform enables members of the club to engage in an open exchange of experiences around university life, exams, seminar papers, bachelor theses and specializations. Thus, students gain valuable insights into student life, internships, student jobs as well as academic schedules. Furthermore, the Munich BFC organizes internal as well as external workshops. Internal workshops are organized by members of the club whereas external workshops take place in cooperation with partner companies of the club such as Glasford International Germany. Since valuable professional contacts are essential for a prospective career, the Munich BFC encourages its members to network and exchange ideas with fellow students as well as companies. In addition, the Munich BFC has created a talent pool in order to connect its members with their preferred companies. Thus, students easily gain the opportunity to receive exciting internships or student jobs. Students who want to expand their investment knowledge have opportunity to apply their analytical skills as well as financial knowledge in exciting projects such as the Munich BFC valuation tool or different kinds of model portfolios. Finally, the Munich BFC offers regular stock market plenary sessions where students discuss current economic events, market trends, corporate strategies and much more.
Because theoretical knowledge is often not enough when it comes to shape a student’s future career, the Munich BFC and Glasford International Germany joined together to close the theory-practice gap. We will be giving useful insights into the daily work of a leading global executive search company by providing business case events and workshops.
University of Applied Management (HAM)
Since March 2020, the University of Applied Management (HAM) and Glasford International Germany are cooperation partners. With more than 3,000 students, HAM is the largest private university in Bavaria with its headquarter in Ismaning/Munich and its study centres in Berlin, Unna/Dortmund, Neumarkt, Treuchtlingen, Hamburg, Vienna (Austria) and Schaffhausen (Switzerland). All study programs are state-recognized and accredited. Thus, the degrees also offer international opportunities for employment and guarantee the equivalence to state universities. The semi-virtual study concept combines the advantages of distance learning with those of face-to-face studies in an innovative way and is part of the university’s mission statement. This approach makes it easy to study while working, without loss of earnings, and provides maximum flexibility with the highest academic excellence.
Students can choose from a wide range of academic disciplines including business administration, business psychology, sports management as well as eSports Management, soccer management or fashion management. The academic schedule enables students to study alongside a full-time job or a working student position while at the same time they can apply their acquired knowledge in our company. The simultaneous use of theoretical knowledge and practical experiences from our managers as well as consultants, who offer valuable expert tips and exciting real-life case studies, optimally prepares students for a professional career.
Through the cooperation with HAM, Glasford International Germany has gained access to a large top-class network with approximately 10,000 students, alumni and over 500 partner companies. The unique and employer-friendly concept of HAM guarantees for low absenteeism in the company and a strong focus on practical relevance. Joint personnel marketing and recruiting initiatives offer comprehensive recruiting opportunities for interns, working students, dual-cooperative students and graduates or employees with high numbers of hours of availability (40 weeks plus) due to the cooperative semi-virtual study concept. Together with a state-recognised university as an education partner Glasford International Germany increases its brand value. As a cooperation partner, we have the opportunity to present ourself as a partner or sponsor at alumni events as well as at events for students or interested parties.
We are looking forward to a long-term and sustainable cooperation with those two student networks and are convinced that Glasford International Germany will benefit greatly from the collaboration.
