BurdaForward Academy

A learning organisation

Learning together, developing strengths, gaining expertise - these are the goals we pursue with the BurdaForward Academy, our in-house talent factory. The Academy is based on three pillars so that we can continue to train and develop as an organisation.

Course programme

Around 100 workshops and training courses offer the opportunity to acquire tools for everyday work and gain insights into non-specialist topics. In many courses, we draw on internal expertise on topics such as monetisation, strategy, content production and tech with lecturers from our own ranks. In addition, external experts always bring in new perspectives.

Talent factory

The talent factory is aimed at trainees, apprentices and working students. After all, future-orientated training also includes networking with experts. The programme not only teaches how a media company like BurdaForward is structured, what strategy we pursue and what our brands stand for. We also promote the team spirit of our talents with various networking events.

Cooperations with universities

We support our teams in tendering for projects at colleges and universities. In addition, we offer our permanent colleagues part-time Master's programmes in Digital Business Management (M.A.) and Media & Data Driven Business (M.A.) at the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW).
