Virtual Internships -programme (Summer 2022)

Knowing that finding an internship for the Summer months can be tough and time consuming, Hanken is piloting a collaboration with a company called Virtual Internships that offers a remote internship programme for students. The programme will be arranged on May-July 2022 and the application time was open until the 20th of March 2022.

The Virtual Internships -programme includes an 8 week internship in a Finnish (or a foreign) company accompanied by coaching and employability themed lectures. The start date of the programme is the 9th of May and the internship will last until the 1st of July 2022. Completing the programme gives 5 ECTS through the Advanced Internship course (requires the internship report) and the Hanken internship grant can be used for this purpose.

The Virtual Internship opportunity is available for international master’s degree students who:
-    are currently on the first or second year of Master’s studies at Hanken
-    have not yet used Hanken’s internship grant for another internship (if you have applied for the grant in category 3 for this Summer you can use it for Virtual Internships, otherwise you shall apply for the grant (category 3, internship in Finland) on the second round 14-28.3)
-    have not yet completed the course Advanced Internship in their major

Virtual Internships arranged an information session on Tuesday the 8th of March at 13.00-14.00. Career Services was also be there to answer any Hanken-specific questions. If you wish to listen to the recording, send an email to Henna Konsti (henna.konsti@hanken.fi).

The application deadline for the pilot round in the Summer 2022 was the 20th of March 2022 (extended from the 13th of March).
