Applied education, as it is offered at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, presents numerous opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and skills in the real world. At International Business (IB), one such opportunity for our students is our international internship program.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A QUALIFIED INTERN?
In order for students to receive their study credits, internship hours* must be completed in one of two academic periods. The internship may begin or end outside the period for additional work experience.
Internship tasks and projects must have an international dimension
Students must be in direct contact with colleagues, suppliers, partners, or clients in at least one country outside of the internship country.
Internships tasks must be at bachelor level
And provide students the opportunity to apply at least one IB discipline: Marketing & Sales, Finance & Accounting, Operations & Supply Chain, People & Organization (HR).
The company must provide a supervisor
Who can coach the student throughout the internship. They must be able to participate in at least one meeting with a university internship supervisor and complete student assessment forms (both in English).
How do Internships at IB work?
With almost 30 years of experience in applied education under the belt of our Internship Coordinators, Sandy Garcia and Laura Raumane, we have built up a comprehensive network of industry partners who offer internship opportunities to our students.
This network regularly adapts to socio-economic and technology changes, aiming to offer students an internship experience attuned to the times.
Over the last 5 years, a little over 200 IB students completed a semester-long internship in various sectors and all over the world.
Throughout the duration of their internship, students are in regular contact with an IB internship supervisor, who in turn also has periodic contact with the company supervisor, thus ensuring a useful internship experience for all parties involved.
