Description of the exam procedure
A written individual report that puts a theoretical as well as an empirical perspective on one or more problem(s) that the student has been working with during the internship; the report must demonstrate relevance to the overall objectives of the MCO programme.

The report must be handed in no later than two (2) months after the termination of the internship.

The report must demonstrate that the student can
• enter into an academic dialogue with the organization
• collect and critically assess empirical material relevant to the addressing of the chosen problem
• select, justify and use with nuance and precision a theoretical framework (background literature) that is relevant to the chosen problem
• account for the chosen problem formulation and its relevance to the tasks carried out during the internship and present the problem, analysis and conclusions in a form that meet the language and form requirements of the academic genre.
Course content and structure
A project based internship is a non-obligatory educational element in the programme that may replace a given number of ECTS points in the electives block, cf. subsection (6). A number of counseling sessions are offered in connection with the report that is to be written after the internship.
The contents of the report will depend on the internship as described in the contract made between the individual student and the organization. If during the internship the student has prepared concrete materials, these may be added as an appendix to the report, but shall not be included in the required number of pages in the report; nor shall such materials be included in the evaluation of the report. The contents of the report must be relevant to the overall goals of the MCO programme and must to the widest possible extent be based on the obligatory courses in the first year of the MCO programme.
