The main objective of the professional training program is to continue with the development of the student.
Students are able to gain knowledge through study in the classroom as well as learning through real life experience.
The program will serve to introduce the students with little professional experience to the working world. On the other hand the company benefits because the students are encouraged to offer suggestions and ideas about the company.
The participation in an international internship is more and more valued by businesses. On top of this an understanding of the language becomes something unique to put on a resume.
