Guaranteed Internship Project
What is Guaranteed Internship Project?
As Izmir University of Economics, we developed the concept of “Campus Izmir”, which would set an example of city-university integration across Turkey.
One of the most important subcomponents of Campus Izmir, which brought along many changes, is the “Guaranteed Internship” project that will enable students to gain experience by getting to know the business world before they graduate.
Being supported by Izmir Chamber of Commerce with its 80 thousand members, the University provided internship opportunities to students.
Students of Izmir University of Economics no longer lose any sleep over about finding businesses to perform internship at.
