Information on internships at home and abroad at the Faculty of Business and Economics

General information

The internship is an integral part of the bachelor's program (mandatory), which usually has to be completed in a company or in another institution of professional practice to the extent of full-time employment.

For Bachelor students, an information event on the internship usually takes place at the beginning of the summer semester. In preparation, you will be invited a few weeks in advance by the person responsible for the internship at the faculty to an OPAL course containing important information and forms. 

If you have any questions about the internship, please contact Prof. Neuvians or Ms. Otto.
