Dissertation or Thesis Director
All students are required to undertake either an internship or research for a dissertation in order to graduate. They are assigned a mentor who will provide guidance and counselling.
Finding work without first obtaining any real or practical experience can be frustrating. Changing careers without having really researched and sampled a new area is often impossible. However, undertaking one or more internships is an excellent way to break the loop and gain the required experience.
UMEF, therefore, encourages its students to undertake at least one internship during the duration of their studies. These work placements allow the student to gain a first-hand experience of the realities of the business world. It is accepted practice that an internship is a requirement of any good and complete education in today’s world.
Every internship requires clearly defined pedagogical objectives, which is why each placement is agreed upon with the company or the organisation, the student and the student advisor beforehand, with the aim of enabling the intern to develop the theory and skills that he or she has learnt in a professional environment while, at the same time, offering constructive feedback on the learning objectives that have been agreed upon and helping students to successfully integrate into the world of business on termination of their studies.
UMEF strongly supports its students in securing employment after the completion of their studies. For this purpose, its curriculum, which is regularly updated, is constructed to develop skills required by the employment market. Seminars are also organised to enable students to familiarise themselves with the current situation of employability and create a network.
UMEF maintains strong links with its alumni and offers the possibility of strong coaching should this be required to improve their performance in their positions. This unique service is free for the first two years after graduation. Following this period, free advice is offered as required.
Furthermore, for current students deciding to undertake an internship, UMEF facilitates their research and contracts with the internship employer.
UMEF accepts, a maximum of 50% of credits to be transferred from public and other recognised universities if the courses followed by the students match those of our curriculum and students have passed the relevant examinations.
