International sourcing team project

Your internship marks the completion of your degree programme. It will tie in with your career plans and enable you to develop and implement skills that will add real value in the achievement of your career goals. Internships are four to six months in length.

You’ll intern from February to August (for a minimum of 24 weeks). You can intern with any type of organisation: SME, corporate group, charity and more. During your internship, you must focus on a specific business problem, fulfilling an actual requirement or meeting a concrete challenge for the business where you’re interning.

You’ll have clearly defined targets in terms of quantitative and qualitative results, which you and the business will work together to define in advance. At the conclusion of your internship, you will evaluate the outcomes of your work and make final recommendations.

Career & alumni

Audencia Bachelor Programmes has created Calypso, a programme that helps you throughout your internship and job search. You’ll learn to use your personal qualities, life experiences and mission to build a meaningful career. This programme enables you to focus on a specific project within a company.

Benefits include:

  • Customised advice on your résumé
  • Preparation for job interviews
  • An individual follow-up during your time with a company
  • Events such as training forums and professional conferences
  • Access to Audencia’s network of partners and alumni

At the beginning of the programme, Calypso will guide you to a better understanding of your personality, talents and abilities in terms of your work expectations.

During this stage, you will refine your ability to work in teams and to ask the right questions – of both others and yourself. Onsite projects and meetings with alumni and corporate CEOs allow you develop your professional network.

At this point, you will finalise your professional project and showcase your skills, professional experience and personal qualities. This project will demonstrate how you can make a real difference within a company. You will also participate in interview simulations and determine whether you’d like to enter the work world or pursue further education.

In the final module of the programme, called Calypso Up, you’ll gain training in areas that will help you integrate into the work world smoothly: work-life balance, task prioritisation, non-verbal communication skills for leaders and more. You may also use this time to prepare for an interview with the admissions team for Audencia master’s programmes.
