HIT overview

Hanken International Talent lays a solid foundation for the students future career and gives a great chance for your company to find highly motivated and skilled young talents. Bring your drive and commitment and we will set you on a path to exciting opportunities.

First year

The student receives a comprehensive introduction to the mentor’s organisation and the industry at large. The student will set up a two-year career plan with the support of the mentor with a focus on professional development. Should interests align, this can be followed by comprehensive on-the-job training in the form of an internship with the mentor’s organisation. This will provide the student with the opportunity to put theory into practice.

Second year

Based on the students demonstrated skills and interest, along with business needs and opportunities, the second year will consist of planning and executing the students thesis in cooperation with the mentor’s organisation. The focus is also on general ‘soft skills’ training, such as presentation skills. The student will have access to top management, industry specialists, and professionals to enhance their career development.
