Practical work activities
The collaboration with companies becomes concrete during the 2nd quarter of the MIB programme (from January to April), when each participant must carry out mandatory Practical Work Activities by dealing with problems related to a company’s internationalization process. Topics and contents of the activities are jointly drafted with the hosting/coordinating companies, and the participant is thereby directly involved and plays an active role in the host company's internationalization process.
A first practical activity is the Field Work, where participants join small groups focused on projects designed and coached by partner firms. The aim of this activity is to allow participants to acquire fundamental methodological knowledge on field research and to grow their team-working skills. The knowledge acquired during class lectures and conferences will be employed in real-life situations to complement the participants' training and to prepare them for working life.
