Excerpt from course description

BI Flex Internship



The BI Flex Internship is available for students in the following programmes:
1) MSc in Business
2) MSc in Strategic Marketing Management
3) MSc in Applied Economics

The BI Flex internship is an opportunity to work abroad or in Norway over a suitable period. The intern is responsible for finding the internship, where he/she would work at a specific company, university or organisation, based on the student’s own interests. This internship can be full-time (minimum 4 weeks) or part-time (minimum 150 hours), and it can be combined with exchange, electives or summer school.

The internship will give you valuable insights in real-world challenges from an international perspective, and should help you in setting your academic learning in perspective. The internship must be approved in advance by BI (via Experiential learning, BI Internship).

The students do not need full study progression from their first year of their MSc programme.

If the BI Flex Internship is conducted in Norway, it is necessary to complete the internship outside of the ordinary teaching semester (e.g. during the summer holiday). If the BI Flex Internship is carried out while on exchange, the internship can be conducted during the teaching semester at the institution abroad if possible.

The BI Flex Internship cannot be combined with other programme specific Internship courses.

A completed and approved internship will give 6 ECTS credits.

Course content

By the end of the internship the student will write a paper related to the internship. Each student is entitled to a maximum of 1.5 hours supervision on the term paper.

As part of this course, it is compulsory to participate in an employability course.
