Internships are an integral part of CEFAM’s program. Students have an opportunity to spend 8 months in a company in France or abroad. Choosing CEFAM means choosing a school with solid connections to the professional world.

The Student Career Center

This department offers students support in their internship and professional mission searches. Every year, many internship and job offers are available to students via CEFAM’s interactive platform: www.cefam-alumni.com.

In keeping with the involvement companies have in the development of CEFAM’s academic program, internships are an integral part of our curriculum. During the program in France, students are required to gain corporate experience through 2 to 6 month internships anywhere in the world and can complete their 4th year in a cooperative education program in the United States at Northeastern University.

Each student is followed individually to better define his or her career plan.

Student Testimonials

E.L.– Citibank international

Luxembourg – 6 month Internship

“I grew in a very cosmopolitan environment and learned how to work within multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary groups. During my internship with Citibank, I had an opportunity to work for several departments, including sales and product development, and to be involved in very diverse assignments, in both strategic and operational terms. Through daily contact with my Citibank colleagues and customers, I am thrilled that my internship provided me with a 360° view of the company. This experience was also an opportunity for me to develop my career plan and learn more about what I do well and what I need to improve, like building my professional network.”

M.B. – CCL

Brussels – 3 month Internship

“I did my internship at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), in Brussels. It was a fantastic experience, both in terms of the quality of my assignments (recruitment, translation projects, assisting project managers, etc.) and the quality of the contact with others within such a cosmopolitan company. I also loved Brussels, culture capital of the world! The hardest part now will be trying to find such an exciting internship for next year!”

M.L.– Xerox

London – 3 month Internship

“My internship with Xerox definitely confirmed my attraction to a career in finance. Thanks to this experience, I discovered life in a company and the reality of working as part of a team. During my internship, my main assignment was to analyze printer rental contracts for professionals. By working hard to successfully complete the tasks I was assigned, I was able to apply everything I have learned at CEFAM and consolidate my English language skills. This internship was very beneficial for me and took place in wonderful conditions.”
