Learning objectives
The objective of the project based internship is through practical work inside an organization to give students an insight into and experience of problems facing organizations so that in an experience-based report the students will reflect on these problems on the basis of the theoretical and methodological content of the MAIBC programme. Therefore the report must demonstrate that the student can:
  • enter into an academic and professionally qualified dialogue with the organization/company in question
  • collect and critically assess at a high level empirical material relevant to the addressing of the chosen problem
  • select, justify and use with nuance and precision a theoretical framework (background literature) and method, which 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 as well as reflect upon their implementation potential in a form that meets the language and form requirements of the academic genre.

Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

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 MAIBC programme and must to the widest possible extent be based on the obligatory courses in the first year of the MAIBC programme.
