Selection procedure for qualification in our talent pool


SIBE-Management-Master – M.Sc. in International Management

The selection procedure for SIBE Management Master – M.Sc. in International Management, consists of three steps: formal examination of the application documents, Online Assessment Centre and KODE®-Evaluation. After successfully completing all three steps, applicants are included in our talent pool. Following a successful match with a project company, applicants are able to start their career-integrated master’s degree! Please note: any application documents can only be forwarded to cooperating partner companies after a coaching telephone call with employees of SAPHIR.

Formal examination of application documents

The application documents are first checked for completeness and quality. We will contact you within a maximum of three working days.

Online-Assessment-Center (OAC)

During the approximately three-hour Online Assessment Center, you take part in a group conversation, work on various tasks and complete a one-on-one interview. In addition to the selection character, it also serves the exchange of information and thus, offers both us and you a good basis for decision-making. After a successful Online Assessment Center a so-called coaching telephone call follows, in which a tailor-made consultation takes place in order to find a suitable partner company for you.


The KODE®-Evaluation serves as an instrument for competence diagnostics and development and has been tested by an independent institute according to DIN 33430. It deals with tasks that are fundamental to the work requirements. The KODE®-Evaluation provides us with an overview of your competences and experiences in order to make a deliberate decision for the final approval of our master’s programs. In addition, the test offers you a very good basis for your own strengths and weaknesses profile, which you can lean on in any upcoming job interviews.

Employer Branding

Through our qualification and coaching measures, we help companies to position themselves as attractive employers for potential applicants.

Durch gemeinsame Rekrutierungs- und Vermarktungsaktionen finden Unternehmen aus allen Branchen so geeignete Qualifizierungsangebote zur Unterstützung ihres Employer Brandings.

What to do in the competition for the greatest talents?

The shortage of junior managers and specialists and the war for talents are forcing companies, more than ever before, to promote themselves as a brand.

Employer branding is about presenting oneself as an attractive employer and, last but not least, positioning oneself advantageously vis-à-vis potential applicants and employees.

This so-called employer branding aims to increase the efficiency of recruitment and the quality of junior managers.

Employer branding measures

The most important measures include, among others:

  • Implementation of a work-life balance (individually defined by each company)
  • Qualification of specialists and managers
  • Social media channels for communication
  • Brand strategy
  • Diversity management
  • Strategic communication of the individual value of the company

However, the best ambassadors for employers are their own employees! Among other things, qualification measures, i.e. (in-house) further training opportunities for employees, are optimal opportunities to achieve the goal of any employer branding, the commitment of employees to the company. 

Occupationally integrated and occupation-accompanying management master programs

The Steinbeis University Berlin (SHB), one of the largest business schools in Germany with the right to award doctorates, is a state-recognised university and a leader in the transfer of competence between science and business. SIBE, as an institute of the SHB, offers occupation-integrated and occupation-accompanying management master programs, which are strongly connected with a project within a company as well as the development one’s own competencies throughout the master program.

This concept involves working on a real company or forecasting project, whereby the students immediately put what they have learnt in the seminars into practice. Through the transfer of knowledge into practice and seminars, a systematic competence development of your employees is carried out. The chart gives you an initial brief overview, more detailed information can be found on the SIBE homepage.
