Top placements in employer rankings Ú The most recent employer rankings have confirmed the powerful attractiveness of the ­Lufthansa Group as an employer in Germany. In the Trendence Graduate Barometer 2014, for instance, university grad- uates with degrees in economics put the aviation company in fourth place in the top employer rankings.

The ­Lufthansa Group likewise placed among Germany’s top 10 employers in the Universum Student Survey 2014, just as it had done in 2013. “We are pleased to make the acquaintance of talented and motivated young people and to work with them to further develop their potential.
