BACHELOR IN INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT
At ISG, our responsibility is to help our students find their path, the job that corresponds to their aspirations in order to succeed their professional integration in the best conditions. Good preparation for their entry into the professional world is essential. Throughout the course, students evolve between theory and practice. Pedagogy, very project-oriented, promotes initiative, creativity and the ability to work in teams.
Regular meetings with experts, professional courses and work placements/assignments also help to make students immediately operational and show their adaptability as soon as they enter working life
Students have to carry out a 6-month internship in a company in France or abroad in year 3 and are strongly encouraged to carry out shorter interships in between.
Internship: part of the learning process
The internship has to be approved by the Dean of the Bachelor in International Management. The work done while on internship is assessed through a report on a project the student has been involved in. The work is graded and counts as an active learning unit.
Students are responsible for finding a suitable internship with the help of the school, as we consider it to be part of the learning process. The tasks they will be undertaking within the internship should be related to their major.
Why it is important to carry out an internship
Applying your professional skills and the theory you have acquired through business cases is a very challenging and enriching experience. It will provide you with the necessary perspective that is required to make sound judgments and take appropriate actions. Also depending on the department and the company where you work, it may be a defining moment as it helps define career plans. Finally, any work experience makes you more attractive on the job market.
