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:
- Degree Plus, which consists in credits achieved not via the 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!!!
Description and requirements
The student decides to insert in his/her study plan an internship, instead of taking 1 of the two elective courses. At the end of the internship, its workload will be converted into 6 credits

- be selected in your study plan during the second year
