Stages and internships, both national and international, are encouraged. A number of summer schools with international partner universities are in place on various issues (Global Perspective on Public and Private Sector Interaction, Applied Health Econometrics and Health Policy, Green Energy Management, Computational Management).
Students may also participate in a joint research and teaching program with the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University focused on the topic of Smarter Citizens.
An internship, a summer school or a special project may replace an elective subject and may be the basis for the master dissertation thesis.
