Activating a Field Project with an Employer

Field projects are activities similar to curricular internships for credit, for students in the Graduate School. They arise from an agreement between an Employer and the University, which provides for a research and analysis project on an organizational and/or business issue.

Coordinated by the Career Services, activities are completed in groups (of between 2 and 4 students), under the supervision of a professional at the company with the possible involvement of a member of the Bocconi faculty.
The project allows students to engage with business functions and professional roles by completing activities on concrete cases. Students can put into practice their knowledge, innovative ideas and skills, and experience the interactions and synergies of working on a team.

With a minimum duration of 8 weeks, activities are held remotely or in a mixed mode (remote and in person) and include career guidance sessions.

In terms of commitment and workload, field projects are in all respects equivalent to internships. They are therefore not compatible with other internships found before or during the experience.
