Study at BI


Prior experience at a workplace is invaluable when you're applying for jobs. At BI, you have the possibility to combine real-world experience with earning credits.

What is a BI internship?

BI Internship is a credit-bearing course. With an internship, you will work at a company with tasks relevant to your programme during your studies. As an intern, you will gain work experience in a field that you're interested in, and be able to start building your network.


How do internships work?

Internships are available for most students at BI who are taking a bachelor or master full-time.

The internship is part of your curriculum, meaning you will spend part of your semester interning at a company. For bachelor students, this means going to work a few days a week, while master students work full-time in a given period.

Tasks during your internship 
The tasks vary according to the company's needs, and your skills. Examples include market analysis, strategy development, customer relations, reports, analysis, recruitment, and budgeting.

You contact a company of your own choosing, and apply by sending a cover letter and a resume directly to the company.

  • Bachelor: you need to have good study progression (up to two pending subjects) and a GPA of minimum C.
  • Master: you need to have full study progression (no pending subjects), but no specific GPA.

You will find everything you need to know about the application process on the student portal:
