Intern Management Consulting

Getting started

If you are doing a degree in business, economics or a related subject - even a completely different subject - and are interested in joining the consulting profession, join goetzpartners as an intern. Over a two- to three-month period, you have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in projects and learn what a consultant's work actually involves on a day-to-day basis. Right from your first day on the job, you will be a full member of the project team, and will also work on-site in client organizations. And what can you expect? You will research and analyze intelligence on markets, competitive landscapes and other subjects, produce benchmarks and prepare compelling presentations and client meetings. You work closely with the entire project team, and benefit from the close collaboration between all the levels of the organization - which gives you valuable insights into a range of subjects and industries.

Interns with outstanding performance will be invited to join our focus group program, and we stay in touch with you after your internship. High potentials have the opportunity to take part in training courses and local events, and benefit from an accelerated direct-entry recruitment process. 

Developing talent

In addition to classic on-the-job training, we offer a variety of opportunities for you to develop and grow both professionally and personally, and to acquire fresh insights and impressions.


The goetzpartners Academy makes you fit for consultancy practice, and ensures you have a steep learning curve. Right after joining us, newcomers take part in Introduction Days to get to know all our departments and the tools we use. You will also be trained in Excel and PowerPoint. During internships, there is the possibility to attend other tool training, courses to build hard and soft skills, and teambuilding events.


By your side from day one: your mentor. He or she will make sure you settle in and help you with any questions you have about your internship or professional and personal development. Your project team will take care of coaching in everyday practice, and you will receive detailed, constructive feedback from your project manager as part of project evaluations during your internship. You can channel this feedback into actively progressing your own development.


Since goetzpartners has numerous projects outside Germany, interns also have the chance of an international assignment. The duration of your internship and when you start are key factors in whether you will work internationally. If you specifically wish to work abroad, be sure to say so in your application: we can then investigate the possibilities.


If you impress us with outstanding performance during your internship, we will ask you to join our program. Even after your internship is over, your mentor will stay in touch to answer any questions you have around career and development. You are invited to training courses, presentations and other local events, as well as our regular Team Spirit events, where you can keep the conversation going and stay in contact. Last but not least, you benefit from an accelerated direct-entry recruitment process.

Recruiting process

If you wish to get to know consultancy practice and goetzpartners through an internship, you should apply four months in advance of your preferred start date. Applications are welcome at any time. Please send us your complete application with cover letter and CV. We shall carefully review your application, and give you our response shortly afterwards.


The recruiting day is all about getting to know one other and exploring the fit - professional and personal - between potential recruits and goetzpartners. We present our company, give insights into how we work, and answer all your questions. In the personal interviews, you have the opportunity to introduce yourself and discuss various business cases, for example taken from strategy, business development and finance. The final decision will be communicated directly after the recruiting day. Due to the current situation all interviews will be held online and can slightly differ from the standard procedure.
