China meets Germany

The Metro Haniel China Scholarship Program is aimed specifically at young talent wishing to focus on trade management. The scholars spend three years at Worms University of Applied Sciences. During this time, they must also spend a semester abroad at a European partner university as well as an internship semester and work at the METRO GROUP during the holidays.

Intensive coaching

In this programme, the two partners made it possible for a total of 58 scholarship holders to do a Bachelor course in “International Trade Management” at the Worms University of Applied Sciences. METRO AG remains a partner of the Haniel China Scholarship Program and offers company internships in China and Germany during the summer holidays.
