International Enterprise Information Management Masters (MSc): Links with business and industry

How we work with industry partners

On the course you will have an opportunity to spend six months on an internship in industry. The objective of the internship (to be followed by the International Project) is to provide you with hands-on experience of the way that information systems (IS) are applied into real international business case scenarios. It is envisaged that the UK students will undertake their internships in Germany and the students from Germany will undertake their internship in the UK thus gaining an experience in a different business culture.

Kingston University and Neu Ulm University have secured a pool of industrial partners willing to take part in this programme. They include companies such as Apple, Sony, Disney, Newedge, Marsh McLennan, Ernst & Young, Royal Bank of Scotland and NTT Data. Both institutions endeavor to continuously expand the pool of companies willing to participate, but the internship is not guaranteed to a student, as such. All students have an opportunity to apply for it and this will be greatly encouraged – since this is one of the unique selling points of the programme. The internship, per se, is not credit bearing, but it significantly impacts on the International Project work and it is subsumed in the 60-credit value of that module. Placement supervisors – members of staff involved in the programme – will be responsible for monitoring the quality of the work, as described in the job template for each placement, in accordance with Kingston University processes and clearly specified within the liaison agreement to ensure the quality of the internship supervision.
