Success with Interships in Germany 2023: Quentin Walliser

As the EUROBIZ program grows, we are featuring short portraits of EUROBIZ students who are currently in Germany and have successfully secured their internships for the second half of their stay. Our fourth portrait presents Quentin Walliser who is working for Mahle. Here’s what he reports back:

“My name is Quentin, I spent my first semester in Germany studying at the University of Tübingen, which I would greatly recommend both for the location and culture, but also for the education. The foreign language courses especially were amazing. Now I am continuing my time abroad with an internship at Mahle in Stuttgart. Mahle is one of the biggest companies in the area earning over 1 billion Euros in sales per month and it is a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry, as well as a pioneer for the mobility of the future. I am an intern in the Corporate Controlling Reporting department, and my main responsibilities are to develop new reporting dashboards using SAP systems. Getting knowledge in the use of SAP, the leader in business applications, is a great opportunity. The atmosphere in the company is also great, and we have very flexible working hours, a great cafeteria, and I am working directly next to the Stuttgart Zoo, the Wilhelma. I was able to get a season pass for only 42 Euros, and we can even hear the monkeys from the office, it makes for a great way to relax with a walk before going home. I started on March 1st and will be working until August 25th.”
