Internship

Why wait to get real-world experience? Gain insights into the world of reinsurance and explore career options.

Internships across the globe

You want more than just a classroom experience? Interning with us not only provides you with work experience but insight into all areas of reinsurance, both nationally and internationally. You can join us from your very first semester to participate in exciting projects in reinsurance and alongside our mixed teams of experts or in our central divisions. And, if you enjoy the experience – your first internship opens the doors to future assignments at Munich Re.

Our Summer Leadership Development Programme

A variety of local internships are available at Munich Re offices across the world, offering work experience and insight into the world of reinsurance.

One of these local internship schemes is the Summer Leadership Development Programme (SDLP), which invites interns to our Princeton office. SDLP is a project-based internship that prompts participants to contribute to solving a real-world challenge the organisation itself is facing. Unlike university projects or traditional internship schemes, SLDP assigns tasks without specifying how to execute them. Meet Danielle who interned at our Princeton office.

Munich Re values learning and growing, and that is very important to me. Everyone I interacted with as an intern was so generous with their time and knowledge. They didn’t just answer questions but offered context so I could get the big picture, too.

Interning with Munich Re gave me the opportunity to work not only with people locally but from sites abroad. My colleagues are very open and into knowledge sharing. The most exciting part – I get to participate in projects where I gain even deeper insights.
