Supervised projects and Internships

Second-year students majoring in Accounts and Financials Management complete a supervised project during the year.
The supervised project is designed to cement the resourcefulness of team-networked students — one, by demonstrating the value of their knowledge and competencies, and two, by unleashing their creativity to design and deploy a professional project.

The supervised project is drafted into a report and defended in front of a jury. The report must be handed to the faculty secretariat at least 5 days ahead of the oral. The oral is a 20-minute presentation that may lead into a series of questions.

Internships:
- a 3-week work placement in year one (introduction to business)
- an 8-week work placement in year two (a business mission to complete)

 

DUT [university technical diploma]: Multimedia and Internet Technology

“MIT gives students design and development training focused not just on products but also on communication services. MIT graduates thus leave with exactly the kind of vocationally-oriented double-degree skills that businesses are looking for”.
