Under the guidance of our faculty and company executives, the Internship Project creates a unique opportunity to bring value both to the MBA candidate and partner companies. Your project will provide you with commercial insight and perspective, introduce you to cutting-edge research and techniques, and help you to hone your skills in a dynamic environment.
You will finish off your MBA year working within a Danish or international company which is a unique opportunity to use your MBA toolkit in a real-world scenario. This is one of the most important features of the Copenhagen MBA that engages you as an MBA candidate in a four-month journey in which you will collaborate with enterprises to tackle issues related to diverse real-world challenges.
With support from the careers team, you will agree on a Internship Project with a company of your choice.
You will help solve a multidisciplinary strategic issue for your unit or department, with full access to relevant organisational data. This is a structured role, and a host will support you on your journey. Examples of previous projects have included:
- A country-specific market entry strategy for a product developed by a pharmaceutical company
- A viability analysis and execution plan for consolidating global R&D centres into the headquarters
- A commercialisation strategy to enable the Client to grow in the target Markets in Europe, by leveraging the Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage technology
From internship to career launch
Louise Andersson completed her Copenhagen MBA internship with Danske Bank as part of her Copenhagen Business School journey. She’s now enjoying a vibrant career with the organisation.
“One of my favorite aspects of the CBS MBA was the internship experience. My four-month internship with Danske Bank not only gave me valuable insights into Danish working culture and expanded my professional network, but also allowed me to apply my MBA learnings in a practical setting, and resulted in a full-time position.”
