Regular internships

SBE encourages Bachelor and Master’s students to do internships within the Netherlands or around the globe. As an intern, you gain grounded and practical experience of what your studies might look like in a work environment which enhances your studies as well as it increases your employability and professional network. Many graduates often end up working at the organisation where they intern.

Are you a current SBE student and looking for the rules and regulations on how to get an internship accredited for credits? Please refer to SBE's Student Intranet (MySBE Intranet).

Regular Internships for BSc and MSc students

Combine thesis & internship

Rather than face a trade-off between finishing your studies and doing an internship, SBE Master’s students have the option of combining the two. During the Thesis-Internship Programme (TIP), your thesis will be written on a topic relevant to a company or organisation during a part-time internship. This gives your thesis focus and applicability and gives you practical work experience. We see this as a win–win initiative for both student and company. As a student, you conduct research on a real problem in a real company, translating theory into hands-on practice. At the same time, you gain valuable professional experience and contacts to kick-start your career.

  • If you are a student of Maastricht University please visit the intranet for more information.
  • For more information please contact the TIP internship office per mail. They will answer all your questions first hand.

As a company, you benefit from fresh new ideas and an innovative solution to a pressing issue faced by your firm. You develop a relationship with a talented, enthusiastic young businessperson, while also giving back to society. The regional economy benefits, too: by connecting budding knowledge workers with potential future employers, Limburg and the Euregion are better placed to retain young talent.
