Malaysian Dutch Business Council (MDBC)


The Student Internship Programme (SIP) was created by the MDBC as a way to increase the ties between the Netherlands and Malaysia by bringing enthusiastic Dutch students to Malaysia for internships with MDBC member companies. Founded in 2004 with 2 batches of students each year (in February and September), SIP has placed around 1000 Dutch interns in Malaysia.

FEB has been working together with MDBC since 2009. Interns are placed for 5 months at either MDBC itself, or at one of their more than 200 member companies varying from multinationals to SMEs. For more information, check this document and/or visit the upcoming information session in which Jolande Jonge Pierik, SIP's Program Manager, will tell you all about the possibilities!

Chieljan Pierik did an internship in Malaysia via the Malaysian Dutch Business Council (MDBC):

'I liked the freedom that they give me at the company. They gave me the time and space to do the assignment in the way I thought was the best. Due to this way of working, I learned from my own mistakes and that is, in my opinion, the best and fastest way to gain work experiences.'

Please note that if you want to apply for an internship in Malaysia via MDBC, you should contact Nienke van den Berg. MDBC's SIP is unfortunately only open to Dutch students!
