United Business Institutes students are to secure a minimum of one internship (traineeship) per year with a company or corporation of their choice, regardless of its location. Remuneration arrangements –if any– are made according to the Company policy.
This internship programme helps students to get acquainted with actual business management aspects, in a real-life company environment.
In the two first years, students are not expected to be in a position of high responsibility. The primary goal of the Internship program for first and second-year students is to help them develop networking skills, understand the working mentality (practices and goals), communicate effectively within a professional environment, and mostly help them better define what area of Business they are most attracted.
For the last year, students are expected to be in charge of a specific aspect of the Business they will be part of for the duration of the internship. They will be able to build on the foundation previously acquired, and grow to positions of measurable significance. The Internship report should be an in-depth study of a particular aspect of the Business they were in. This aspect should be very closely related to a course subject (e.g. Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Management, etc.), and put in the Company perspective. This report should lead to accurate and well-structured conclusions, in the spirit of an actual “audit”.
