LNDN 3375: Global Internship Course: London

3-6 Credits

3 Credit Course: The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and online educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit. GIC students also partake in out-of-class guided and self-guided activities and field studies that have been devised to enable students to become more comfortable with, and knowledgeable of, their internship locations/neighbourhoods. Furthermore, a day-long field trip illustrates how socio-political and economic factors, such as the effects of housing costs in global cities, necessitate commuting and changing work practices such as flexible working hours and working remotely that embody best practice in well-being. Field studies vary depending on location and may also include a focus on, for example, corporate social responsibility and sustainability. The GIC fits in with CAPA’s philosophy and practice of enabling students to learn about the social and cultural context of their internship placement and the host region and country, as well as other GIC themes, through comparative global analysis. Where appropriate, this analysis will be facilitated through a small selection of CAPA Masterclasses given by leading professionals from a diverse range of fields. The in-class active learning approach gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyse theories and models of work, organisational behaviour, and management in a cross-cultural context. 6 Credit Course: The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and online educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit.
