Practical Work Activities

Home / Practical Work Activities

In order to gain the required credits, participants must carry out mandatory Practical Work Activities in which they will be dealing with issues related to a company’s internationalization process. Topics and contents of the activities are jointly drafted with the hosting/coordinating companies, and the participant is thereby directly involved and plays an active role in the host company’s internationalization process.

A first practical activity starts during the second quarter of the programme as a Field Work, where participants join small groups focused on projects designed and coached by partner firms. The aim of this activity is to allow participants to acquire fundamental methodological knowledge on field research and to grow their team-working skills. The knowledge acquired during class lectures will be employed in real-life situations to complement the participants’ training and to prepare them for working life.

A second practical activity (an In-Company internship) concerns the last part of Study Year 1. It is an individual in-company activity guided and monitored by the Internship Supervisor. It should last at least 3 months and have as possible contents:

Assessing a new potential market

Identifying a suitable distributor in a local market

Selecting foreign suppliers

Analyzing legal regulations in a foreign market

A third practical activity typically takes place in the Second Semester of Study Year 2 as a Project Work. It is organized by the partner Universities according to their schedule.

In addition to courses, a cycle of conferences has been designed and planned to enhance student’s international knowledge and competences in the different subject studies.
