2019/20 - Academic Calendar and professional internship
In the second year, students are obviously not expected to be in a position of high responsibility. The major goal of the Internship program for second-year students is to help them develop networking skills, understand the working mentality (practices and goals), communicate effectively within a professional environment, and mostly help them better define what area of business they are most attracted to. After completing their internship, students will be asked to turn in a report on both the Company and their own responsibilities. This report should not focus on any specific aspect in particular but should provide a general understanding of the environment they were in.
For the last year, students are expected to be in charge of a specific aspect of the business they will be part of, for the duration of the internship. They will be able to build on the foundation previously acquired, and grow to positions of measurable significance. The Internship report should be an in-depth study of a particular aspect of the business they were in. This aspect should be very closely related to a course subject (e.g. Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Management, etc.), and examined from the Company perspective. This report should lead to precise and well-structured conclusions, in the spirit of an actual “audit”.
