A professional or academic internship is a mandatory element of MESPOM study program. It aims to develop students' professional skills and connect them to networks relevant to their future careers.

An internship is registered and evaluated as an academic course at Central European University with a value of 4 ECTS (2 CEU) credits, which is equivalent to about 100-120 hours (2-3 weeks) of student's workload.

Internships are normally undertaken between the first week of July and the 3rd week of August between the first and the second academic year, but earlier completion of internships can be arranged on request if it does not disrupt student's studies.
