Unknown-2 Ekaterina Tsvetkova ’20 Awarded German American Exchange Internship Ekaterina Tsvetkova ’20

Ekaterina Tsvetkova ’20, a junior and a double major in business administration and German at Washington and Lee University, will participate in the German American Exchange Internship Program (GAE) this summer.

“W&L’s liberal arts model allowed me to pursue two disciplines at the same time, which directly helped me get an internship offer,” said Tsvetkova. “W&L has helped me through the invaluable knowledge that I gained in class and through the study abroad opportunities that the university provides. The internship pertains to both my majors, so it is an amazing opportunity to gain practical experience in my fields of interest. Furthermore, W&L has taught me how valuable encountering other cultures and learning from them is. As an international student, it is important for me to diversity my experience abroad even more, so I am very grateful for the opportunity to do so.”

 Tsvetkova will be working at Robert Bosch GmbH a large multinational engineering and electronics company headquartered in Gerlingen, near Stuttgart, Germany.

 The GAE offers three-month, paid internships in Germany for American students who study German and one of several other fields, including business administration, accounting, computer science and the natural sciences. While in Germany, they can work on their language skills and gain a better understanding of Germany’s economic role within the European Union.
