In order to enhance one's understanding of how academic theory and practice interconnect, this course combines an internship in a company/organization operating within the areas relevant for the ENE profile with a report that relates academic theories to practice.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will have attained the following:
- The candidate has knowledge about how theories from economics/business administration and practice interconnect in a company/organization operating within the areas relevant for the ENE profile
- The candidate is able to do an analysis or suggest improvements at the organization where the internship takes place, using relevant academic methods and theories
- The candidate is able to reflect on and assess the validity of knowledge and skills acquired during his/her studies in light of practice
Credit reduction due to overlap
The internship you take as part of the ENEINT course can not be combined with an internship taken as part of the INTERN-A-M course, Innovation School, Gründerskolen, Sosialt entrepenørskap and other similar programmes or courses.
