Systematically improve your work force by recruiting our top talents

Jacobs University stands for performance-oriented education of international talents.
Our educational concept aims at fostering employability which refers to skills, capacities, and competencies which transcend disciplinary knowledge and allow graduates to quickly adapt to professional contexts.

“The student body is great. Actually, Jacobs is probably one of the top universities from which Microsoft hires software engineers in all of Germany. So, it’s great!“

Benjamin Mercer, Software Engineer, Microsoft

We combine excellence in research with excellence in teaching – and pass on our state-of-the-art knowledge to the high performers in your company and to our young talent.


One of them is Cornel Amariei, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences graduate from 2015. Forbes nominated him as one of the “30 under 30” – the most influential young talents in Europe. While still working on his degree, he designed the Lumen glasses for the visually impaired. Today, he is working as Head of Innovation at Continental. He continues work on his pet project as CEO. About his time at Jacobs University, he says: “Transdisciplinary courses in completely unrelated fields opened my mind. Now, when I see a problem, I generally can look at it from a whole new set of angles, which I was not able to do before I came here.”

You are invited to meet our students  – at our annual Career Fair or by joining our Corporate Stipend Program for an early and deep connection with your company.

Jacobs University inspires - our students tell you how:

“Jacobs definitely challenges and inspires. They force you to go beyond yourself and set yourself new goals – I think that’s something that Jacobs definitely teaches you: go beyond what is expected, try to reach goals that you don’t think are possible, or that you thought you couldn’t. I think you can really make things happen, and then you’re capable of doing that. That’s what Jacobs teaches you.”
Max Lohmann, graduate from 2012 in International Social Science who now works as a policy advisor for GIZ, the German Development Cooperation Agency
