The individual modules of the program take place at the zeb locations (in Germany) as well as virtually.
The program is aimed at female students who have had no previous contact with zeb (e.g. through an internship) and will be held in German.
It is for female students from Germany, Austria or Switzerland who are at least in the second semester of a bachelor’s degree or at any stage of their master’s degree in an economics-related, STEM or IT subject. All you need to submit is a CV and a short motivation letter.
You can expect a multifaceted program with very different events and hands-on insights into consulting life. In addition, you can use our fast track in later (internship) applications and thus shorten the application process.

Like any typical female student at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, I wondered whether a consulting job would really be the right thing for me. First I decided to work in procurement – but as you can see, things always turn out differently!
The atmosphere was really pleasant! I looked forward every day to seeing the other staff members at the office and getting to know new colleagues. Communication between the different office locations and between the different career levels was absolutely hassle-free.
My Bachelor’s degree was very theoretical, and I always wanted more practical relevance and career orientation. After my last exam it was immediately clear: first work, then study some more. The Analyst program offers an ideal link-up between a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as education and career.
