Your participation


"Inside zeb: Women in Consulting" is a five-month mentoring program for female students. The program contains separate modules of 1–2 days each. The participation is free of charge. We will of course reimburse you for travel expenses to the events or job shadowing opportunities. 

Time frame

Participating in the program alongside your studies, part-time job or internship is perfectly possible. Our face-to-face kick-off and closing events are held from Friday noon to Saturday afternoon. The remaining events of the program are largely virtual. The total program duration is approximately five months. Entirely virtual participation in the program, however, is not possible. For the discussions with your mentor you should schedule about three hours per month. 

The next program start is penciled in for spring 2024.


The individual modules of the program take place at the zeb locations (in Germany) as well as virtually.

Who can participate?

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.

Your Benefits

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.

Have you always wanted to be a consultant?
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.

Why did you decide to take the job as an Analyst at zeb?
Why did you decide to take the job as an Analyst at zeb?
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.
