Internship in Business Administration 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsIf suitable to their study profile and course portfolio, programme students with a major in Business Administration are offered the possibility to do an internship in a business organization. For a 7,5 credit internship, the minimum time spent with an organization is 5 weeks equvilant to full time. Students themselves take the initiative to investigate their opportunity to take an internship course with a student counselor and locate an internship position.

The internship position should offer an exclusive opportunity to study a topic in business administration. By applying theoretical knowledge to practical experiences, this internship course also provides a unique opportunity to reflect on the variations between theory and practice and the value of combining them to gain valuable knowledge and skills for a career in business administration.
Students must be enrolled in the internship course before they can start an internship. Before a student can be enrolled in the internship course, the internship position and the topic of study must be approved by the course examiner.
