School leavers at Atlas Copco IAS –
the start to your working life!

Study course at the dual university

Bachelor of Arts, Business Administration – Industry Program 

Project management, process analysis and management based on modern operational management are at the center of the Business Administration – Industry program. An understanding of business administration covering all departments is required to apply these activities. For this reason a sound knowledge and understanding  of our structure, organization, processes and values is necessary.

The structure

A three month theory block at the "Duale Hochschule Karlsruhe" alternates with a three month practical block at Atlas Copco IAS in Bretten. The foundation course starts by teaching the basics of business administration. After this it is possible to specialize in two fields of business administration in your main course, depending on your interests and our requirements. You can choose from human resources, marketing, logistics & materials management as well as financing & controlling. 

After this you will get to know all technical and administrative departments. This gives you an early introduction to the culture, organisation and internal processes at Atlas Copco IAS. Your colleagues will give you the opportunity to independently work on projects. The aim is to find out in which department you could imagine working in after your studies. This is the field in which you will concentrate during the main part of your course.
