New knowledge to your company
The companies that choose to have one of our students on work placement contribute to the reinforcement of the important dialog between company and educational institution. Through the students, the companies receive the newest impulses and at the same time they have the opportunity to affect the student’s interest in and understanding of the real challenges of the business world. On the other hand, our students experience the daily routines and tasks themselves when doing a work placement. Often, they realise that they are able to do much more than theyhought they could.
With an international student from VIA UC on work placement, the companies get an extra opportunity to enrich the international atmosphere and have an international view on the potentials.
A work placement period is also a really good opportunity for assessing a future employee.
As a company you will:
- Get new inspiration on some of the newest tools and techniques
- Get qualified employees who will take part in problem solution like the others in the company
- Benefit from experienced researchers
- Have the opportunity to get started on postponed projects
- Profile the company at the relevant study programme
- Get the opportunity to affect the development of the study programme
- Get in contact with potential employees
- Take your part of responsibility for the education of new graduates
Autumn is traditionally the time of year when most of VIA’s students do their work placement. During springtime it is only Marketing Management students that go on work placement.
The engineering students and Value Chain Management students go on their 5th semester, however, the Global Business Engineers on the 7th semester.
The Constructing Architects have work placement on the 6th semester and International Sales and Marketing Management students on 4th and 6th semester.
