Purpose of internship
The purpose of the internship is to give you the opportunity of applying the theory from class in practice. Your place of internship is expected to contribute with best practice experience that should support your learning goals. During the internship, you are assigned an intern supervisor from Cphbusiness, as well as a contact person in the company.
Together, you and your intern supervisor agree on the learning goals for your internship. The agreed upon learning goal will determine your role and job function.
The internship period is concluded with an evaluation meeting, in which the guidance teacher compares your learning from the internship with the initial goals. The internship should be seen as a full-time job.
Cphbusiness has several exchange agreements with other European and international educational institutions, regarding exchange stays and study abroad.
