The overall aim of the internship is to allow participants to experience professional activity and to implement the skills acquired in the classroom to respond to any task or problem that they may encounter.
Internships may be selected by the faculty or may be proposed by students themselves, always provided that their realisation will contribute to reinforcing and developing the specific and generic skills appropriate to the course profile.
This professional experience can be achieved by completing a long-term internship (30 ECTS), or by completing various short-term work experiences of a lesser duration in the offices of one or more companies, working on a variety of concrete professional activities, projects or tasks.
Amongst the various modes of internships, there exists the possibility of working professionally under contract; this signifies that the internship can be converted into one’s first job after completing the Master’s programme.
Internees have the support of a tutor who ensures that students take maximum advantage of the work experience and helps them to orientate the preparation of their report on the work experience.
