New agreement on internships in Japan

NHH has just signed a new collaboration agreement on internships for students with the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce Japan. The agreement means that six to eight NHH students per year can complete a four-week credit-granting internship.

The agreement is initially for two years.

The last couple of years NHH has had a pilot project on internships in Japan and Brazil funded by Diku. The project is now completed. Associate Professor Kristin Rygg at the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication was with Merete Ånes at the Section for International Relations in Tokyo last week in connection with the completion of this project.

In order to be able to offer internships in Japan for NHH students traveling there on exchange, NHH and the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce Japan have now signed a cooperation agreement.
