Excerpt from course description

Internship for Business Analytics


The internship is an opportunity to work full-time at a company during your studies and gain professional experience. This is particularly important for a programme like business analytics, an area in which companies have developed state-of-the-art technology and analytical tools for many relevant business problems. The internship will give you valuable insights in real-world challenges, and should help you in applying your academic background toward increasing organizational effectiveness and growth.

Course content

Students will work in groups from 1-3 for a minimum of 10 weeks (400 hours) in a selected company and the analytics-related tasks are assigned by the company. The company should be in business for at least 3 years, have 5 or more employees, and a turnover of NOK 5 million or more. Students must attend work as agreed upon with the company they are assigned to. Each student is entitled to a maximum of 3 hours of supervision. Part of the supervision is a mandatory follow-up meeting with the academic supervisor (and other internship students) half-way the semester.

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

The internship may be paid or unpaid.
