Contenu

During their international internship, IB students are expected to describe, reflect and share their own international/intercultural managerial experiences with other students. The whole process is monitored by an academic supervisor.

Méthodes d'enseignement

Students will have to prepare 2 kinds of reports: 4 progress reports during their internship and 1 integrated report after their internship. Progress reports will describe (1) the company and (2) students' missions (specificities, difficulties, and solutions) and be sent at the end of each month. These reports should be concise and clear enough for other students to read and share experiences. The final integrated report builds on the 4 progress reports and includes a comparative analysis of one's experience with another IB student's experience. The comparative analysis will be built around the readings of another IB student's progress reports and emails/forums exchanges. Further, the student will reflect on how different/similar problems have appeared and how these have been solved (or not). As an outcome of this analysis, students will develop and illustrate at least 3 managerial recommendations for international junior managers starting to work in the organization where they had their internship.
