When it comes to applying what you’ve learned throughout your studies, nothing beats an internship. Front-line experience is, without a doubt, an excellent opportunity to develop your newly learned skills and get to know employers.
Over the course of the HEC Montréal B.B.A. program, you can complete up to two paid internships worth three credits each. An internship entails a minimum of 140 hours of work to be completed on a part- or full-time basis over a maximum of four months.
Internships can also be carried out abroad as a means of gaining international experience. In the case of students from France, internships are often key to finding employment. We’ll help you organize an internship in France at the end of your studies, and an HEC Montréal professor will act as your supervisor.
In 2010-2011, over 100 companies around the world gave HEC Montréal’s B.B.A. students an opportunity to carry out an internship.
According to Xavier Comptois, a graduate of the 2010 International Business cohort, the internship he carried out in Vietnam in 2009 opened his eyes to different ways of doing things, and to different values.
"An international internship is an education in itself. You discover other ways of doing things and other values. Mine also taught me the relevance of the legal system in every aspect of day-to-day life."
