We collaborate with companies and institutions at a local, national and international level. We facilitate the employment of students and graduates and, through our research activities, we assist companies in the development of innovative products, processes and services.
Most of our degree courses involve a compulsory internship. Besides trilingualism, the practical approach of our study programmes is one of the reasons why more than 71,9% of our graduates find a job within a year after graduation (source: AlmaLaurea).

Head of Human Resources, Miele Italia, Appiano (BZ)
"Miele Italia, subsidiary company of the Miele group, is a global market leader of innovative and high-class white goods and hosts yearly many interns of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in the mutual interest. We offer internships in the fields of marketing, finance and logistics, giving students the opportunity to accept a challenge and handle projects in autonomy. Our experience has been always positive, students are well prepared, dynamic and their language skills are a competitive advantage. Some of the interns have been employed after finishing the internship. Events like Job Speed Dating and the collaboration with the university are important in order to keep contacts among educational institutes, companies and the territory alive."
In addition to teaching and research, technology and knowledge transfer is the third pillar of the university. Direct collaboration between institutions in science, business and society fosters the development of new technologies, products and services, and such joint projects ensure the practical relevance of research and education.
Businesses and institutions help the university fulfil its educational and research role. This might happen through sponsorships or patronage, for example by sponsoring our events.
