With our virtual internship programme you will be matched with one Italian company and be given specific tasks and projects to fulfill, according to your profile and expectations. You will therefore empower your personal and professional skills and build your brand, having the same advantages from working with an international company and the same coaching support.
The programme is the perfect fit for you if you are looking for a customizable opportunity: you can apply for the virtual internship as a stand-alone option or you can combine it with a semester of online study at Università Cattolica (during the semester or after it).
The virtual internship will be managed in English or in Italian, while the content of the course and the webinars will be delivered in English. The knowledge of Italian is not required, however we encourage you to enroll in our language course.
6 ECTS credits (virtual internship 20 / 30 hours per week + a 25-contact hour course)
February / May – June or over the Summer (June / July)
