JOB & MASTER is a free-of-charge placement service for applicants who wish to combine a challenging academic education at HSBA and valuable professional experience. In cooperation with renowned companies in Hamburg, we look for (bachelor’s) graduates who want to be employed as junior staff member in the company while completing the part-time M.Sc. degree. An aim of the programme is that students should stay employed at the companies after finishing their studies.
The offer is particularly suitable for candidates of our M.Sc. Course GLOBAL MANAGEMENT AND GOVERNANCE, because the programme focusses on entry level positions.

Details JOB & MASTER-Programme
JOB & MASTER candidates
The JOB & MASTER programme is aimed at graduates with (bachelor’s) degrees in business and economics. In order to be included in our placement service, candidates must have good or very good pre-existing business knowledge and very good English skills. German may be required depending on the job profile.
Being the university of Hamburg's business community, HSBA´s JOB & MASTER programme has the following restrictions:
- JOB & MASTER candidates should not have an employment contract with a Hamburg based company
- HSBA does not foster company changes during the studies, ie JOB & MASTER students should be employed by the same employer over the whole studies period
- We only accept candidates with a high expected employability in Hamburg based companies
Admission and placement process
The candidates apply to the JOB & MASTER programme with their written application to the master programme. The personal and professional suitability for JOB & MASTER is assessed during the three-stage HSBA admission process. If the candidate assessed is suitable and accepted onto the study programme, the placement process starts immediately. The applicant’s profile is published in our candidates catalogue and thus made accessible to a large number of companies. Additionally, he/she is also matched to one of the job profiles advertised or can apply directly to our partner companies for jobs that they have advertised.
If necessary, HSBA can also support each applicant individually by preparing non-solicited applications and helping applicants to improve their applications. Furthermore, HSBA works together with its cooperation partner Hanseatisches Personalkontor Hamburg to place suitable applicants. Companies that are interested generally arrange a detailed job interview with suitable candidates.
Students and companies negotiate on the content of the employment agreement (scope, salary, percentage of course fees to be paid by the employer), with the partner company generally paying for the course fees and paying the student a salary that will cover his/her living expenses (cp. the sample calculation). HSBA is not involved in the contract negotiations, but recommends that the students has enough time to follow the study programme, e.g. by being employed to work on a part-time basis (30 h/week).
