General information

Internship thesis (30 ECTS)

  • Internship - general framework

    The internship is an important activity of our Master program. Also, its concretization must be done in a real, formal organizational setting, and not in a virtual enterprise or within the framework of a personal accommodation.

    The internship thesis can take the form of a "teaching case study" or of a "research case study". These different options will be explained by the supervisor.

    Regular contacts with the internship tutor within the company, as well as the professional qualifications of the latter, are appreciated by the director of the program before the final approval of the internship. Ideally, a CV of the tutor must be integrated into the internship application, along with the internship specifications or job description officially signed by a senior manager of the company. The documentation of this accreditation procedure prior to the beginning of the internship is a responsibility of the trainee candidate.

    To be validated, the internship must be sufficiently complex, require a university degree and be related to one or more of the topics covered during the Master. It should also have an international character by being carried out within an international company/organization (SME, large company, NGO or civil service organization with exposure to international affairs) or within a company/organization in its internationalization phase. It can also take place in a large national company.
     

    Similarly, during the intership, the candidate must make real efforts to contact her/his direct supervisor as designated by the program committee.
