MS Internship Program (MS3403)

Internships enable our students to translate their knowledge into real-world practice, helping them stand out early in the competitive job market.  With placements in real-world business context, students are able to gain valuable work experience, refine their inter-personal communications skills and develop other soft skills required in the workplace.

The unique learning opportunity may help our students build up their network with professionals in the field and probably the connection to their first job. Internships sharpen their edge in the job market and help them develop their future career path.

More Internship experience can be found from students in Business Analysis and Business Operations Management.
