Integration through Qualification:

The program “Integration through Qualification” aims at sustainable improvements in the labour market integration of adults with a migration background. The program is supported by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) and the European Social Fund (ESF). 

Partners in the implementation are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Employment Agency (BA). 

Qualification program for academics: Business Administration

This project intends to qualify further individuals with foreign academic degrees in Business Administration and to refresh their specialist knowledge.

Academics with foreign degrees are often not employed at a level corresponding to their qualifications, or experience difficulties in entering the labour market at all. UP Transfer GmbH at the University of Potsdam is offering a practical bridging qualification to address this issue. This university qualification will give the participants an opportunity to improve their current employment opportunities.
