Business Education Based on the Needs and Developments of Real-World Companies

Work Placements/Internships

Each year, every student in the program must complete a work placement/internship in a company. Over the three-year program, this represents a minimum of 10 months of work placement:

  • 2 months in the 1st year
  • 4 months in the 2nd year
  • 4 months at the end of the 3rd year

Most students go beyond these obligations and spend on average 11 months in work placements. The opportunities are endless: our website where companies announce placement offers for TBS students receives 4,100 work placement offers a year. Each 3rd year student receives an average of 400 work placement offers.
