The final stage of the program is dedicated to increasing and enhancing their work experience. Both TSI Tourism Sant Ignasi and Maastricht Hotel Management School have an impressive network of international corporate contacts. The universities will collaborate in finding an internship in a hotel, tourist organization, consultancy or tourism related company. This internship, which can take place in Spain, the Netherlands, in other European countries or even in Asia, has a minimum duration of 18 weeks, but some companies offer longer internships which may be continued after the student finishes the program. The experience gives the students an excellent insight into current concerns of hospitality companies and helps the industry in finding creative and innovative solutions.
The aims of the internship are:
To increase practical business skills by enabling the student to apply theoretical knowledge in a realistic setting.
To familiarize the student with the way in which an international hospitality company or institution functions.
To gain insight into the nature and level of the many aspects of working in the hospitality field and of the different professions that are available for Hospitality Management graduates.
To develop personality, team skills, flexibility, sense of responsibility and cross-cultural communication skills.
