International Internship on Digital Business 15 Credits
Course ContentsThe internship course gives students the opportunity to develop their skills as reflective practitioners. The course builds on student placement in an existing or emerging company, or other relevant organization (for a minimum of 10 weeks). By engaging in pre-defined assignments, relevant for the study programme, the students implement their current knowledge, skills and approaches in a digital context. Reflective tasks and reports related to the internship experience, facilitate additional learning for students.
The course relies on the notion of reflective practice. Reflection in action implies a conscious reflection and thinking of what you are doing while doing it. This ability is key to practice-based professional learning and a skill which is important especially for dealing with situations of uncertainty, uniqueness and conflict. Such dynamic situations are likely to occur in the process of business digitalization and related projects. By focusing on reflective practice, this course strengthens the students’ readiness for management positions. Students are coached to reflect on processes ongoing in their internship, including their own role in these.
