Business chemists at BASF
Be a mediator between two worlds.
As a business chemist you understand the disciplines of chemicals and business. You speak two "languages" at the same time and can handle both disciplines. In research and development your tasks will focus on research controlling, which requires marketing experience with a clear understanding of chemistry. The main areas of work are however outside research in commercial departments: e.g. in procurement, technical marketing or sales, product management, new business development or supply chain management. Contribute your wide-ranging expertise to these areas.
As a student you have the opportunity to get to know us better during an internship or final thesis project and gather valuable work experience in an international company. After the internship you will know a whole lot more about BASF, potential subject areas for your thesis and work areas for your future career. Simply apply for one of the internships available.
You are studying business chemistry and have not yet completed your studies. Your communication is confident and authentic, including in English and you thrive on working in an inter-cultural and interdisciplinary team. You are open to new things and enjoy technical and commercial challenges that you approach purposefully and solve using innovative means. Ideally your internship will last three to six months so you can demonstrate your commitment and talent.
An internship at BASF gives you insight into the processes of a globally operating and leading company. Internships are in principle possible in all functions and departments - in procurement, technical marketing or sales, product management, new business development or supply chain management. The subjects for internships and thesis work are as varied as our products and the industries and customers that we serve.
Here you will learn from experts in your area and have the opportunity to build your own network, thus taking the first steps towards your professional future. You will benefit from personal supervision during your internship by our competent specialists. Our experts are happy to give you an insight into their world and answer your questions.
