How to apply in and around Munich

Munich as a business and academic location

With 1.54 million inhabitants, the State Capital of Bavaria is the third largest city in Germany and is also one of the leading economic metropolises in international comparison.

In addition to major global corporations, Munich is also home to numerous medium-sized companies and up-and-coming startups. The broad and balanced industry structure offers a wide range of employment opportunities for highly trained professionals.

With 17 universities, academies and universities of applied sciences, Munich is the second largest location for higher education in Germany. In addition, there are other renowned research institutions, such as our network partners Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Max-Planc- Gesellschaft, Helmholtz Zentrum and the German Aerospace Centre (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt). A characteristic feature of the Munich region is the close interconnection between research and industry.

Requirements for applicants

Even though many companies and organizations in the Munich area operate worldwide, the work culture is often shaped regionally. In most cases, German is the predominant language in everyday working life. It is therefore advisable to acquire German language skills as soon as possible (for more information, see Living in and around Munich). Nevertheless, there are also opportunities for international applicants without German language skills. We provide individual advice on the specifics of the application process in one-to-one meetings.
