Success Stories
  • Damien

    Former Dual Student in Business Informatics

    “As a dual student, I was able to peek into various areas within SWAN and consequently choose the right career path based on my strengths. SWAN offers a healthy work environment with self-responsibility and the freedom to shape situations.”

  • Julia

    Former Working Student

    “SWAN makes me feel like an integral part of the team: my work is genuinely appreciated, challenging, and encourages me to grow daily. During my studies, I could directly apply theoretical knowledge into practice, take on various tasks, and grow beyond myself through new challenges.”

  • Simon

    Apprentice in Application Development

    “As an apprentice, I highly value the trust placed in me. We’re assigned our own small projects that go through the same process as normal projects. This prepares us optimally for daily operations and familiarizes us with the workflow. Additionally, we rotate through all internal teams during the apprenticeship. This experience makes it easier for us to decide which area we want to work in later on.”

  • Miriam

    Apprentice in Application Development

    “In my apprenticeship, I received a solid foundation in the SAP environment from the start through various trainings. This knowledge could be applied and expanded later in internal or customer projects. The SWAN Academy concept not only provided a clear foundation for technical education but also fostered soft skills and provided further opportunities for personal development.”

What are the training contents of the apprenticeship as an Application Development Specialist or the dual study program in Business Informatics?
Our training is very hands-on and covers the focal points of the apprenticeship/study program curriculum.

  • In the first year, the focus is on the technical aspects of IT. From basics to programming in the SAP environment with ABAP, database usage, object-oriented programming, and modeling, you’ll get to know and apply many more areas of our IT world.
  • In the second year, the focus is on project planning and SAP application. You’ll be part of a project team where you’ll learn about our daily operations and the challenges of project realization. You’ll participate in customer workshops, implement small project tasks, and apply them directly to customers.
  • In the third year, you’ll experience our service business, and then it’s on to the specialization phase, where you’ll see yourself or where we see your strengths.

All thematic areas are introduced initially through our wide range of basic training, and then you can put them into practice in different departments.
