Combining the thesis with an internship is not recommended, as internship obligations will compete with the very strict timeline for the thesis trajectory and elective requirements. Students are advised to pursue an internship in the summer, or after finalising the thesis.
Some programmes offer the possibility to substitute a 6 EC elective with a company-based project. Please check with the thesis coordinator of your MSc programme if this is possible. At the time of writing the following five programmes offer this possibility: Business Information Management*, Global Business & Sustainability, Human Resource Management*, Management of Innovation, and Supply Chain Management.
*Note that the application requirements for the 6EC company-based project elective may differ per programme.
