Internship at MIBE

The internship aims at developing the student’s skills thanks to a real work experience. During the second semester of the second year, the student will have the opportunity to either attend 1 or 2 elective courses, or do an Internship, the workload of which will be converted into credits.

At MIBE, students can decide between:

  1. Internship
  2. Degree Plus, which consists in less credits via usual courses + 2 highly-qualified internships in leading companies of the MIBE network, plus special sessions, events and opportunities (for selected students only, 10 seats available) – FOR DETAILED INFO SEE THIS PAGE 

Note: Mind not to confuse these two opportunities, because each one of them has its own procedures!!!
