TBS' policy for internships is wide and the only restriction is that a student cannot be an intern in a company of his or her family.

 

Are they paid?

It depends on the company, although the school recommends businesses to pay the student to keep him or her motivated. However, it is not a requirement and the student must negotiate the contract with the company.

 

Which career paths can I follow afterwards?

The employment percentage of graduates working after the master is high: 88% of them find employment within two months of graduating.
