Internship Hunting: 6+1

Posted on: March 23, 2011

6 Terms + 1 Internship = MBA!!! This is the requirement of AUA School of Business and Management.

Many of MBA2 students are in hustle and bustle of their Internships. There is still one more term to go and the happy graduation ceremony will be the reward for 2 year “torture”.

What is an Internship in reality? “Internship is a system of on-the-job training for white-collar jobs, similar to an apprenticeship” (and YES, I know wikipedia is not the most reliable source). As for an intern: “A student or a recent graduate undergoing supervised practical training.”

Does this +1 really serve for what it is supposed to? Are the MBA students of AUA really getting the training they need in local companies? And if they are what is the guarantee their “internshiper” will become their employer?

Questions which I don’t want to answer…

What is obvious is that interns will go on looking for “useful” internships and the companies will continue searching for “Super-Interns”.

Very important topic dear!

I personally think that there should be more internship opportunities offered by the AUA, since most of the times students don’t have the knowledge and capability for finding suitable company.
