Leadership for Change Students Looking for Internships

Leadership for Change (LFC) Students in the Faculty of Management, University of Tampere, are looking for internship places. The students are first year master’s students in business, governance and politics. Studying in the LFC programme, they have been able to develop analysis and leadership skills that are needed to deal with today’s complex problems. These students have a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills making them attractive to potential employers in the public sector, private enterprises or other organisations.

The students have received a grant for their internship from the University of Tampere. This grant covers a significant part of the employer’s internship costs (for more information, please, click here). The internship grant can only be provided for internships under a Finnish employer. However, it is possible to use the grant for an internship abroad if the employer is Finnish.

Here are profiles of some of our students currently looking for an internship.
