course contents

Students deepen their knowledge of theory by applying it to practical situations involving commercial law tasks. For the internship, students work at least 475 hours for an external company in a full-time capacity. This enables them to more easily make the transition from university into the world of work and also to feel more confident in their knowledge and skills. They come to know and understand workplace processes, procedures and situations. Students are guided through their internship by mentors, who help them to reflect upon and discuss their problems and successes.
