"The Integrated Business Faculty"-IBF provides to its students from all academic years to have an internship in various enterprises, institutions and NGOs, upon selection by the student and recommendation of the faculty for a period of one month (internship) with no financial compensation.

The main goal is to help students to gain practical work experience during their studies and engage in the daily operations of the company as an added value (additional assistance in implementing the activities of different areas).Throughout the program, students will be assigned to a specific area and their activities and their work plan will be linked to the daily operations of the area.

For each intern an individual program will be prepared for the entire period that will include objectives in terms of things that need to be learnt. Well-designed and documented learning objectives that provide clear direction and defined goals for the intern.
