Spotlight on Business Administration - International Business
Which work-study programme are you doing at DÜRR DENTAL?
I am completing my work-study programme in Business Administration-International Business.
Why did you decide to do a work-study programme at DÜRR DENTAL?
I had known for a long time that I wanted to do a work-study programme. It was very important to me to be trained in an industry with a secure future. So I did some research and came across DÜRR DENTAL. As DÜRR DENTAL is active in the dental sector, it was clear to me that this company would be a potential option. In general, there is a constant demand for dental technology services, as people will always need dental treatment and prostheses. I was also impressed by the fact that DÜRR DENTAL has 45 locations worldwide and is represented in 148 countries. I also think it's great that there are lots of leisure and sports activities on offer, such as the company's own fitness studio or company-owned flats in holiday sites.
What do you like best about your work-study programme so far?
I think it's great that you have so much variety in the practical phases. In contrast to full-time students, you can put what you've learned at university into practice, which I think is great. You also have the opportunity to work closely with dentists and colleagues from all over the world, which I find very interesting, especially with regard to my field of study.
What areas have you worked in so far, and can you give some examples of the tasks you have done here?
So far, I've had the opportunity to get to know a lot of departments. From the warehouse to accounting and sales. I was always allowed to take on tasks independently in the departments and experience everything first-hand. For example, I was often taken to our subsidiaries and could get to know everything there and work independently. I was also able to work at the International Sales Meeting in 2023 and had the opportunity to get to know our foreign employees directly.
What was the most fun that you had during your work-study programme with us?
Definitely our trip to Tripsdrill!
