Become a partner and crucial support for management.

With a combination of cross-departmental and department-specific tasks, we offer varied and challenging opportunities within the different controlling units of BASF - in the business areas, regions and functions as well as in corporate controlling. Your contribution will support management in decision-making, promote the exchange with other functions and ensure compliance with relevant guidelines. On the basis of your controlling method knowledge, you will take responsibility and act as a reliable partner who critically questions decisions. You will have a "bird's eye view" of our company, will contribute to value-led management and thus actively design the future of BASF.

During an internship you will receive insight into what goes on in a global leading chemical company. As an intern you can expect exciting tasks that give you the opportunity to actively drive forward what you have learned and give you deep insight into the finance and controlling processes at BASF.

You can also support our team as a student employee - and get involved in interesting day-to-day projects.

It goes without saying that you can complete your final project thesis in controlling at BASF.

We are looking for students to support us in demanding tasks and projects for a period of 2 to 6 months. This requires a strong affinity with numbers and systems as well as clear analytical skills, in addition to advanced studies in business with a focus on controlling/finance with above-average performance. You are confident in handling MS-Office applications, can manage your tasks in German and English and are highly dedicated. Your profile is rounded off by basic relevant practical experience, ideally in another country.

You will join us in demanding work areas and will take on exciting tasks as well as possible sub-projects, in an interdisciplinary working environment. During your internship or student employment, you will work in one of the various controlling units at BASF in the business units, regions, functions or also in corporate controlling.

If you want to complete your final project thesis with us, we would be delighted to hear your ideas and see your initiative.

Please send us your complete application documents via our online career portal.

As an intern or student employee you will support us with the systematic analysis of financial and operational data and will be involved in producing repeated analyses and reports as well as ad-hoc reports. You will contribute your skills in identifying business developments and trends and thus make an important contribution to business decision-making.

From the very first day you will be part of the BASF team and will be able to develop through your goals in cooperation with colleagues in an international environment. Through numerous tours and different workshops you will get to know BASF and gain an all-round insight into the company.
