'Having the role of an intern, I was free to participate in a wide range of projects throughout the organisation and worked on wherever my curiosity and skills led me. I have developed a view on my role in the labour market and am now more confident in deciding which next step to take professionally. A Master Internship is a perfect way to explore what you want and what you're good at. I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a specific occupation in mind.'

- Maarten Vennix did an internship at Travelbird during his MSc TOM

'Through the Master Internship I have been able to experience working life and the business culture of New York City. I applied the knowledge I've gathered during my MSc Marketing to real life situations in a non-profit organization with relatively limited resources. This was a great and interesting challenge! And, to top it all off, I've lived my dream of calling New York City my home for a while.'

- Jasmijn Staal did an internship at Bike New York during her MSc Marketing
