Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

Internships offer an introduction to professional work environments. It provides an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a company, institution or organization that works professionally with issues relating to digital management.


In so doing, internships develop the professional skills of the students in terms of understanding, describing, explaining and applying the relevance of their academic knowlegde in a professional context for digital business management.


The main objective of internships is therefore to bring into dialogue academic and theoretical knowledge with professional experiences. 


This includes specifically providing scholarly arguments for the selection of a substantial amount of literature (minimum 3 books/scientific articles), relevant to the research question and to the internship. 


This all aims to gain practical experience relevant to the DM competency profile by working for a public or private, profit or non-profit organization, and to secure experience of the Danish or international labour market outside of CBS so as to apply the skills addressed in DM courses.
