Master's Programme in People Management and Organizational Development

Other studies


If at some time during your studies you have a summer job, are employed in addition to studying, or you complete a separate internship, then you may be able to turn your work experience into 3 to 6 credits as an elective study. You can put an internship in either a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in Business. An internship is not, however, a requirement for a degree.

The internship must be performed during your time of studies. You can apply for credit for an internship only for a period of work that you performed during the period of validity of your right to study. You may also have performed work for a longer period or as part of employment relationship, so long as you meet the other criteria of the internship. A work experience may not be approved as part of your degree, however, if it was performed before your right to study was valid.

Find and procure the internship by yourself. For additional information on internships, including on scholarships for international internships, see here for internships in Finland and here for internships abroad.
