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.
