IB is the first to sign an international internship agreement after exchange!
International Business is the first program within The Hague University of Applied Sciences to sign an extension to a “Memorandum of Understanding” with one of its exchange partners. This extension is signed together with partner university Universidad de la Sabana in Colombia and allows International Business at THUAS as well as out Colombia partner to recognize each other’s internships.
This agreement states that both universities offer students the option of an international internship, coached by local lecturers, in addition to their exchange semester. In concrete terms, this means that students first go on exchange for six months and then do an internship of six months in the host country and university. The students stay in the Netherlands or Colombia for one year.
Universidad de la Sabana has been a strategic partner of THUAS and IB for some time. We have already run two semester-long COIL (Collaborative Online Interactive Learning) projects, and our fruitful and strong relationship is now crowned by this great expansion of our collaboration.
The first student from Colombia has already begun their exchange at IB. Three IB students are currently on exchange in Bogota, following which they will also do their internship there.
We are thrilled to be beginning on this new chapter together with Universidad de la Sabana.
