Develop your skills to flourish today –
for tomorrow’s future
This year, we are adjusting the focus of Bertelsmann University's learning offers. In the future, we will continue to provide all Bertelsmann employees exciting and relevant training solutions which will have an even stronger digital focus. You will soon find more information on this in our news section.
Leadership & Strategy
Bertelsmann is becoming a faster-growing, more digital, more international, and more diversified group. To support this transformation process, we need a strong leadership culture and a strategic mindset. Develop success-critical skills and learn about current topics that you can carry into your organization and put into action.
Technology & Data
We deal intensively with the opportunities opened up by new technologies. Cloud, Data, and Artificial Intelligence are priorities that determine success at Bertelsmann. In cooperation with leading online education platforms, we develop comprehensive curricula to build these necessary tech skills. Be prepared for the digital future.
Creativity & Innovation
Creativity is vital to us. At Bertelsmann, we celebrate and nurture creativity: encouraging the critical and imaginative thinking that challenges convention and unlocks opportunity. We know that innovation best serves our customers and markets. Expand your creative skills by learning new methods and concepts.
The concept "New Work" describes the new way of working of today's society in the global and digital age. This change towards greater flexibility and agility calls for an openness to new ideas and a rethinking of existing ones – know-how is required in order to translate this into individual opportunities at Bertelsmann.
Colleagues‘ first-hand insights
Mediengruppe RTL, Germany
“The most important outcome was getting an overview of the new digital trends and of where we stand today, and being able to transfer these insights into the daily business and into strategic decisions going forward.”
“For me, Creativity Bootcamp was an opportunity to think out of the box and break the routine. I believe that companies that focus on the user, find innovative solutions, and sometimes even act disruptive to their own business, are better positioned for the future.”
Arvato Financial Solutions, Ireland
“I think the opportunity to interact with the group of your peers, to get reflection, to hear your own challenges through other peoples words and to be questioned about that. That really helps you with your day-to-day job. I think that is one of the things that is really positive about the IT Circle.”
Hauke Albers, Corporate Responsibility & Diversity Management
“I would recommend the training to all my colleagues, because we all tend to fall into habitual patterns and use familiar methods. That way, you simply don’t come up with new ideas, but think ideas are good that don’t fit the customer at all. So from now on I intend to brainstorm with my colleagues more often, always with the target group in mind, in order to avoid doing work that doesn’t even reach the target group.”
Arvato SCS, Germany
"We have to close the gap between business and technology so that we can jointly generate new business ideas. I can recommend both, Udacity and Coursera. If you are looking to learn programming skills sign up for Udacity. However, if you prefer classic university-style lectures, you may wish to take advantage of Coursera's many possibilities. For example, I use to listen to lectures on my way to work."
