Course content and structure

The internship will train the student in the role of a "reflective intern". This means that on one hand the student will participate in supply chain, logistics and business related issues and on the other hand reflects upon the concrete professional, organizational, theoretical and personal aspects and conditions for practical problem solving. The internships will provide the students with a strong professional foundation and network upon which they can build their career and personal development.

The purpose of the internship is to introduce the student to global logistics and/or supply chain management in practice. Furthermore, the student will learn how to work professionally in an organization. The student must gain a holistic perspective of the company in supply chains and demonstrate how the theories learned in their tri-continental program can be applied. During the internship, the student will experience the usefulness of theoretical concepts and tools and at the same time, the limitations of theory when applied to practical issues.  The student must demonstrate a problem-oriented mindset in order to identify the challenges in a company dealing with practical logistics and/or SCM.

The student must participate in a proactive way in the daily life of the company. The intern report should demonstrate ability to argue for choice of theories, methods, and empirical data. There should be a clear structure for the analysis including understanding of the strength and weaknesses of the analysis. In addition to the conclusion, there must be a separate section with recommendation for practice.  During the internship there will be a feedback session with CBS peers and course responsible.
