Key facts:

We believe that anyone can realize their dreams and have the ability to do what they really love. From the very first year of study, students of the Certificate Programme in Management and Leadership for Business and Hospitality offered at European School of Economics  therefore have the concrete opportunity to proactively move towards their professional goals and target their objectives. While developing a range of marketable skills and competencies, internships will furthermore allow students to:

  • apply course knowledge in practical situations within the work environment
  • bridge the gap between undergraduate study and the labour market
  • develop inner qualities and gain a practical understanding of the concept of individual responsibility, according to which external events are projections of one’s own inner state
  • test individual career plans by obtaining experience in a chosen field, and thus helping one to better understand what it is that they really love to do
  • develop a professional network and assess internship providers for future employment opportunities.

Working in collaboration with more than fifteen hundred leading international companies, including some of FORTUNE’S 100 Best Companies to Work For, the European School of Economics offers one of the most competitive university internship programmes available today.Many students are offered jobs even before graduation. The Internship Department plays a crucial role in assisting students to identify their objectives and learn how to exert their full potential.
