Examples of the responsibilities of a BBA intern

 

IMPORTANT:  These are only examples of responsibilities and are intended to give you an idea of the duties of students and employers. No internship will be automatically accepted because it is found in an internship description.

For an internship to be accepted, an intership agreement (in French only) must be completed so the academic internship coordinator can analyze the content in its entirety.
