Internship or research in your organization

The benefits of hiring an intern are many. In addition to applying their state-of-the art academic skills and knowledge to your projects and business, interns provide a fresh perspective on your organization. A positive internship experience will also lead to brand advocates and possibly longer-term hires.

SBE students can do an internship in different phases of their Bachelor's or Master's degree programme, both within and outside their program. For all internships within the study programme there is also supervision at the School of Business and Economics (SBE). For these internships it is important that the content matches the study programme. In addition, the internship must be at academic work and thinking level.
