What is the Schneider Global Student Experience?
The Schneider Global Student Experience is designed to provide you with a way to engage with us at Schneider Electric through e-learning and simulated projects. On this journey, you can learn more about what it takes to be in our sales & marketing, services, or supply chain business areas, all the while learning skills that you can take with you for your next project, interview, or internship.
The experience was created in June of 2020 during the beginning stages of the pandemic. We wanted to give students the opportunity to gain experience in areas they were interested in when internships or in-person programs weren’t accessible. During the first edition, we received interest from over 46,000 students!
For our second edition, we’ve happy to share that we’ve expanded our learning tracks giving students more options to choose from.
What to Expect
Top learning you can use in your career
Through professional learning courses that are designed for our employees. These courses can be used for your personal and/or professional development.
Feedback from professionals in the field
After you’ve spent your time on the stimulated project, we want to provide you with useful feedback. Our industry experts will review and provide you with insightful comments that you can take with you – for your schoolwork, for your next internship or even the next interview with us at Schneider Electric.
