Christoph Rueckel is the founder of the Amcham Internship program which believes that Internships for American students are one of the best ways to develop young ambassadors who will bring a new and focused dynamic to the world around them after returning to the United States. The Internship Program offers students the opportunity to become familiar with German culture through a three-month internship with a host company in different fields of the economy. As students will be working in a business environment, daily interactions with leading international firms will enable students to gain a better insight into the German economy, sharpen and improve their German language skills and engage with cross-cultural challenges helping to cultivate a better transatlantic repertoire between the United States and Germany.
The program is designed to ensure that all students returning to the United States from Germany have an expanded self-confidence and a clearer understanding of Germany's economic and business role within the European Union. Although American students who wish to gain international experience early in life are our primary participants, we have students from many different cultural backgrounds who can share their previous life experiences while in Germany and new ones after the return home. Through daily interactions with their host company, students will become true ambassadors for the rapidly globalizing world around us in a time where a larger international perspective is necessary for both personal and cultural progression, as well as creating a better transatlantic relationship between the United States and Germany. The new platform provides students with ample opportunities to gain insight into the world’s economy, improve their German language skills, and enjoy cultural challenges.
The US German Internship Program is a not for profit organization registered with the State of Georgia as a charitable organization under the name AmCham BridgehouseLaw Internship Program, Inc. 1170 Peachtree Street N.E., Suite 1815, Atlanta, GA, 30309. This program is sponsored by AmCham Germany, Christoph Rueckel and BridgehouseLaw for the purpose of providing educational internships to US based university students abroad.
