The goal of the internship module is to gain thorough practical knowledge in the field of public and nonprofit management by doing an internship in Germany or abroad. Students should gain insight into the everyday work of organizations to be able to better plan their future professional life.
It is recommended that the internship be completed in a public or nonprofit sector organization; further options include doing an internship in a company with a corporate social responsibility strategy or in sustainability or environmental management project. Applications for an internship in hospitals (all legal forms) are generally approved by the PUNO master's program.
Duration of the internship: generally 6-9 weeks (full-time, 12-18 weeks part-time); the duration of the internship can also be extended depending on the respective organization.
Registration for the internship module is open year-round. You will find further information on the pages of the Academic Office Socioeconomics (Studienbüro Sozialökonomie), incl. “application for approval of internship” as well as a “template for the cover of your internship report”.
