Internships, Placements and Consultancies

These opportunities fluctuate from year to year depending upon availability, as well as the language capabilities and skill competencies of individual students.

Practicum (Consultancy Project)

Instead of studying optional courses during the semester, you may have the option to undertake a Consultancy Project in the month of January, before classes begin, or in June, after classes finish.

There are also opportunities to undertake internships during the semester. Internships would be sourced directly by students and when considered relevant to the programme content, the university and the organisation may sign an agreement for the internship to be credit-bearing.

The School would be able to offer students the possibility to participate in Consultandes, a consultancy project in which master students participate. It is a credit-granting course whereby undergraduate and graduate students learn consultancy by working with a firm or other type of organisation applying for the service.

Consultandes was founded in January 2006 by students and faculty members of the “Business Cases and Projects” course run by the School. It supports clients that aim to manage change and develop different business opportunities by making available the knowledge of students and the consulting expertise of the School´s faculty.

As of 2018 Consultandes has worked with 652 clients in 799 projects. Over 3000 undergraduate and graduate students have participated in these projects.
