• Find below all relevant information to get well-prepared for your internship

  • Carefully read the information below

    Type of internship

    It should be a 'consultancy internship'. You will solve a very relevant problem for the company. Or in other words, you will improve something for the company. You will do this by coming up with practically relevant solutions. Next to that, you will implement and/or test (part of) your solution to see if it actually solves the problem.

     

    Please check the study specific information (BA, EBE, and Econometrics) for examples of suitable internship assignments.

     

    It is fine if you do other tasks on the side but those tasks should be relevant for and supportive of the main internship assignment (e.g. tasks needed to better understand the company and/or the context of the internship assignment).

     

    At least 336 hours need to be spend on the assignment and relevant tasks related to the assignment. More hours is fine! Those extra hours can be spend on tasks that are a little less related to the assignment.

     

    Please note:

    • It is important that, before you actually start, you discuss with the company which assignment is relevant for the company.
    • The assignment is part of your internship, which means that your internship company should allow you to work on the assignment during the hours of your internship. But given that the assignment is very relevant for the company this should not be a problem. If it is a problem for the company, the company is not suitable for the 12 EC internship.
    • Make sure you come up with an assignment that is focussed enough to be able to (partly) solve during the internship. Changing the global strategy for a large multinational might not be doable during your internship.
    • Take into account that you need to spend time on actually implementing/testing your solution.
