An internship is essential for obtaining a degree. It allows the students to prepare themselves for the realities of professional life, and it allows the companies to evaluate the skills of their future employees.
Company internships, which correspond to the studies being followed by the student, give rise to a 3-party agreement between the student, the University and the company.

Finding an Internship

Several means for finding an internship:

  •          Your personal networks, educational networks, IAE associations (IAE Alumni)
  •          The IAE website via Job Teaser
