Multi-lingual careers

Training to become a foreign language correspondence clerk or a European secretary opens up a variety of interesting career opportunities with which you can be assured of a good future. Since learning a foreign language is linked with business training, you effectively achieve a double qualification, something much in demand in today's economy. You will simultaneously obtain a good grasp of secretarial administration, office communication and computer skills. The key qualifications of foreign language skills and business know-how will be in even greater demand by companies in the future. The European single market increased by 10 countries in 2004. More will follow. The Asian market, particularly that of China, will play an important role for Germany. The Latin American countries have not yet reached their full potential, but will certainly attain this in the future. Since we place great importance on the knowledge of foreign trade, you will be prepared in the best possible way for these developments and, as a result, extremely employable in a variety of situations: At home and abroad, in the foreign trade department of all business branches and industries, in exhibition and congress co-ordination or in the media. With a qualification a foreign language correspondent or multi-lingual secretary, it is possible to specialise further at our academy, for example as a translator or an interpreter. After a few years of work experience, it is possible to train towards the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) examinations in Business Administration. Multi-lingual secretaries have the additional opportunity to embark on a further programme of study at one of our partner universities in England and with this achieve a full university qualification.
