TIME goes beyond the conventional lecture-oriented post-graduate degrees as it attaches particular attention to practical skills. A student internship that offers students such skills is one of the program’s focal points. Accordingly, students are encouraged to find an internship either in the Netherlands, Greece, Cyprus, the rest of the EU, or even abroad. The internship aspires to allow students to experience the institutional, entrepreneurial, and labour reality of a potential working environment. The internship provides you with the opportunity to work at a host organization, e.g., a company, public institution, consultancy firm, research organization, another university or non-governmental organization.

TIME-MBE will offer assistance in actively training you for internship interviews, in shaping your resume, and in helping you find an internship.
