The Continuation of a Success Story

With the establishment of the AKKAdemy in Leipzig, we are looking to differentiate ourselves from but continue the success brought about by our AKKAdemy in Geneva. In Leipzig, we focus explicitly on the German market and our top customers in the automotive industry. Because of this, the program is comprised of a substantial amount of technical contents. Ultimately, we are in search of the region’s best recent graduates in order to establish a new Digital Center of Excellence.

Ambitious Goals – Top Talents

Our Mission: Recruit “Digital Natives” to shape the future with us

In order to make a lasting impression in a transitioning industry, we’ve created a Digital Engineering Program that offers young talents the opportunity to develop and grow at their own pace and acquire sustainable development and consulting expertise.

Our Promise: Personal development of top talents by combining theoretical training and practical experience with maximum flexibility

Inspired by the newest theoretical and practical training methods in an interdisciplinary and agile environment, you will be able to build upon the knowledge gained during your academic studies. Additionally, our coaching program will guide and assist you in your personal development by answering any questions or supporting any decisions during your time in Leipzig.

Our Spirit: Together we are ahead of the times

Every day – even in turbulent times – we dream, experiment, and challenge ourselves and have fun while doing it.

The AKKAdemy in Leipzig currently offers the Digital Engineering Program

The Digital Engineering Program is a 12 month program for recent graduates in the MINT fields. The program consists of six weeks of training which includes the implementation of an innovative project with one of our locations in Germany. Subsequently, an assignment in one of our innovative customer projects awaits. Additionally, two follow-up training courses will take place and certifications will be administered upon successful completion.

The Program – The Perfect Symbiosis

The training concept is modularly constructed and is a result of a 360-degree approach that encompasses our customers’ wishes, the experiences of our veteran managers and experts, as well as the ideas of the most ambitious participants of the Digital Engineering Program. Here, the most modern technologies and teaching methods will be applied instead of traditional lectures.

Digital Engineering Program: Success in Three Steps

Step 1: Six Weeks of Theory in Leipzig

Along with other aspiring digital engineers in Leipzig, you will acquire the most important competences that make up a successful digital engineer in the automobile industry. For your assignment in our customer projects, you will receive a special selection of tools with which you can impress our customers. Also, because we place great value on the exchange of knowledge, we strive to connect you with experienced AKKA managers who are willingly ready to share their experiences and Lessons Learned with you. At AKKA, we value innovation. Therefore, we will teach you how you can implement innovative ideas into practice. If your idea proves to be valuable for the business, you may have the chance to develop it into a product. In addition, we will support you with the further development of your soft skills like agility, communication, presentation techniques, languages, and more.

Step 2: Practical Experience

More than half of your time in Leipzig will involve the further development and application of your skills into practice. Therefore, there are a range of diverse projects to choose from. You will have the chance to improve existing competences or gain expertise in new areas that allow you to enter into a new field. During the 12 months, you will have complete access to our modern online learning platform which contains over 2,500 high-quality, interdisciplinary courses. If you wish, you can even expand on your language skills. Moreover, we offer you the opportunity to outline your own development path through individual coaching sessions and by consulting with your manager.

Step 3: Development into Young Expert

During your practical training, you have the chance to be selected to develop further into one of our Young Experts. In addition to the project assignments, we offer you the opportunity to choose from one or more certifications. To ensure success, you will receive training which will optimally prepare you for the final certification.

‘’ The automotive industry is currently in transition. Until only a few years ago, motors, for example, were the focus. Today, however, the most important functions in and around vehicles are all shaped by software. The transition to and focus on these digital contents will be one of the most difficult challenges for each OEM. As part of our Clear 2022 strategic action plan, we at AKKA intend to lead and actively help shape this transformation in the automotive industry. The AKKAdemy is one of the most important components of this program. With it, we will create a new Digital Center of Excellence. ‘’
