Questions regarding the MiM at Audencia Business School

Is it still possible for MiM students to do an internship in France or elsewhere? If so, what should 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. However, many of these positions may have remote working elements to them in order 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?
