Course content and structure

Internships provide students with a real life professional learning experience and offer students a unique opportunity to gain hands‐on experience in a company, institution or organization that works professionally

with issues relating to business administration and Asian related issues. The main objective of internships is to convert academic and theoretical knowledge into professional experience. This must be mirrored in the report.

The report contains two elements. Firstly, a description of the organization and the internship along with key learning experiences. Secondly, an analytical paper relating the host organization and/or the work completed during the internship to relevant theories, issues or problems from the ASP curriculum.
Teaching methods
An internship must involve both job training and formalized learning processes. It must take place within an existing organization (company, governmental, non‐governmental) in which the student is hired by a contract specifying time period and contract hours. The internship is not limited to organizations in Denmark, but can take place in all parts of the world. The duration of the internship depends on the contract, but the total period of employment must be 225 hours
employment for a 7.5 ECTS internship.
Student workload
Preparation 206 hours
Further Information
Supervision is 4 hours.

The internship guidelines are available on E-campus.
