INTERNSHIP ABROAD WITHIN THE CEMS MIM PROGRAMME 

The necessary part of the CEMS MIM Programme is an internship abroad. The main objective is to turn academic experience and theoretical knowledge into a professional experience and to provide students with a real life professional learning experience.

Students can udergo their internships:

  1. During their studies at VŠE -> The internship will be recognized as a part of the study programme IM, as a special course “Internship Abroad” (3IG710) with 6 ECTS credits into a group of elective courses at VŠE. The internship will be part of the Diploma Supplement and students are eligible to ask for a financial support OR
  2. Within 18 months after their graduation at VŠE

The internship abroad is a necessary condition to graduate and to gain diploma in the CEMS MIM Programme.

The basic for requirements for all CEMS/IM internships are:

  • Students either spend the internship abroad, or, when spending both academic terms abroad, they may pursue the internship at home, but within a company operating in an international environment.
  • For the purposes of the CEMS MIM Graduation requirements "abroad" is defined as outside the country of the home school.
  • Internships must be a full-time activity at a professional level (first job level, although salaries may not be commensurate) where the student is given one or more challenging projects with a certain degree of autonomy.
  • Internships must cover a period of at least 10 consecutive weeks full-time in the same company (the first 10  weeks of a full-time employment position is also accepted).
  • Internships can take place at any time (also prior to CEMS selection) except parallel to the studies during the two MIM terms. Students are recommended to undergo the internship during summer breaks.
  • Internships must be during the graduate level of studies, starting with the date when the student fulfilled all official Bachelor degree requirements.
  • Internships can overlap with the Block Seminar only when a contractually agreed vacation is declared. Official documentation will be requested.
  • The student's work must be supervised by a tutor within the company.
  • Internships must be approved by the home institution before they start.
  • For the purposes of the CEMS MIM Graduation requirements "abroad" is defined as outside the country of the home school. For VŠE students who want to gain 6 ECTS and a financial grant "abroad" is defined as outside the country of the home school AND outside the country of citizenship or country which is culturally similar to the country of citizenship (e.g. Czech Republic-Slovak Republic, Germany-Austria, Norway-Sweden etc.)

1) ERASMUS INTERNSHIP

Students of the International Management / CEMS MIM Programme at VŠE may obtain an ERASMUS+ grant.

The important qualifications of participation in ERASMUS are the following:

  • The student must be duly enrolled at the sending university (it is necessary to have a student status) during the whole time of the internship abroad, (it is not possible to finish the studying at the home university before completing the internship).
  • Each student is allowed to participate in the  period of his/her university education, regardless of the number of universities only once in the Erasmus internship programme

Requirements of the internship within Erasmus

  • Minimum duration of 10 weeks (two and half months), maximum of 12 months (formally only, students can receive financial support for 2 months only).
  • Only in a country, which is a member of the Erasmus Programme and Switzerland.
  • The internship cannot be realized in the institutions of European Union and in national embassies abroad, because of the possible conflict of interest or double funding.
  • Full-time employment, which has to be approved in advance.

 

Financial support

After fulfilling the requirements, students receive financial support for a maximum of 8 weeks (2 months) of the internship. If the internship lasts longer, the student is for the remaining months classified as a “zero-grant” student.

The amount of grant varies according to the country of internship.
