The internship allows students to gain relevant work experience to learn how to identify and solve complex problems and helps them in the preparation for their thesis. The internship provides an opportunity for students to get acquainted with the operation of the organization:
Regarding processes, features and frameworks of professional work and activities of the different departments
Management information systems, managerial organization, decision making processes on different levels of the company
Internal and external partnerships, competitors and cooperation with other market players.
To complete the internship, students can apply to a position at any business or organization that undertake activities relevant to the field of their studies and which have existing positions requiring and employing someone with a higher education degree.
There are two methods for choosing the place of internship:
Students may choose from an existing list of organizations with an Internship Agreement, from the Faculty’s database.
Students can find internship for themselves. The programme leader or the internship coordinator of the Department has to approve the organization and may require references (company profile, brochures, webpage or other materials) that prove the eligibility of the organization for hosting the students.
