In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and to register the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and they are evaluated by midterm and final reports.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.

Professional Internships

You will complete professional internships with companies in the sector. These internships are part of the academic programme and will be evaluated as part of each student’s training in business management. Professional internships are a unique opportunity for students to put the theory and skills they develop on the master’s into practice at real companies.

We provide a job search engine featuring a large selection of companies and opportunities, and the Professional Careers Department is on hand to give you all the advice and resources you need to find a professional internship that best suits your profile and aspirations.
