TECH STUDIES AT CODE
For the theoretical training of our tech talents, we work together with the CODE University of Applied Sciences. One of three state-recognized courses can be chosen (B.Sc. Software Engineering, B.A. Interaction Design and B.A. Product Management). CODE pursues an innovative learning concept that relies on theory through practice, self-learning skills and interdisciplinarity and is shaped by the curiosity and creativity of the students themselves.
Parallel to their studies, our tech talents get practical experience in their home unit or through so-called unit visits within Axel Springer. The duration of the assignment is usually 6 months and offers the opportunity to deepen one’s own skills, get to know different brands and thus understand Axel Springer as a whole. The cost of living is covered by a fair salary.
An important part of the program is the six-month collaboration in interdisciplinary projects. The aim is to create a common understanding of tech-driven media innovations in all phases of story production. The work is characterized by a close connection to our units and editorial offices, as well as the exploratory nature of the projects.
