Is it still possible for MiM students to do an internship in France or elsewhere? If so, what could be the duration of the internship? 

It is still possible to do internships in France and abroad.  Businesses still have a need for quality management students to fill positions that they have in their companies and Covid has not changed that need.  Many of these positions, though, may have remote working elements to them, though, to adapt to the current health crisis. Most internships are between 4 to 6 months.

Could the MiM be paired with an apprenticeship program? 

Unfortunately, at Audencia, the apprenticeship option is not currently available to international students.

What are the possibilities for students to get scholarships or financial aid?  

Information on our scholarships can be found here:

What job employability opportunities are there currently in France, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic? 

Many businesses have continued their traditional hiring rhythm, despite the Covid crisis, as they realize that they cannot afford to have a management gap that will need to be remedied once the health crisis has been resolved.  Some sectors have increased activity (especially with respect to businesses that have strong e-commerce orientations).  The biggest change that we have seen is more related to the working environment as many of our students are working at least partially (and in some cases completely) remotely.  We have adapted our teaching to help to train students for these positions so that they feel comfortable with this working style that is rapidly becoming the norm.
