Jasmijn Staal is one of the first students to participate in the Master Internship (MI) FEB started providing as a pilot this academic year. In the MI, you do an internship related to your MSc programme. The MI focuses entirely on work-based learning.
Jasmijn is currently doing her internship at Bike New York
, where she (among other tasks) is running a project on how to attract more international cyclists to Bike New York's events (addressing International cycling markets); creating a social media strategy and manual; and generating content for the different social media channels of Bike New York. As the main event photographer, she
is also responsible for taking photos at classes and other events.

Jasmijn emphasizes the added value of the Master Internship:
"Through this MI I have been able to experience working life and the business culture of New York City. I applied the knowledge I’ve obtained during my MSc Marketing to real life situations in a non-profit organisation 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."
Are you starting your MSc next year and are you interested in incorporating a Master Internship in your programme as well? Check
