explorers 10 runs for a year, starting in April 2016 and ending in March 2017.
The program is kicked off by platform I from April 7 to 10, 2016. Further dates to mark in your calendar are September 7 to 11, 2016 and March 15 to 18, 2017. Of course, the time in-between does not go explorer-free. You are asked to commit an average of 5 hours per week to the program (½ work, ½ private time).
You will come together with all explorers and in smaller groups several times throughout the year while working on projects relevant for the Lufthansa Group.
The face-to-face gatherings serve the purpose of (net)working with fellow explorers, stakeholders and Lufthansa Group management. In addition there will be in-person and virtual trainings to broaden your horizon on many levels of competence.
The program will cost you one mile – the extra mile. ☺ Read on for what we mean and the actual monetary figures.
You will work on highly demanding projects and topics in intercultural teams from diverse backgrounds, and all of this on top of your regular job. But hard work, sweat and tears will also be combined with a whole lot of fun.
The tuition fee is 3,200 EUR.
Accommodation costs approximately 1,800 EUR.
Additionally, you should plan travel costs for three platforms and travel costs for several project meetings in-between (continental or intercontinental flights).
