How to apply

The course ends with an optional internship (3 CFU) in an institution involved in better regulation (regulator, regulated firm or think tank). 

Internship is reserved to attending students who have successfully passed the final exam.

Students interested in performing an internship, must send an e-mail to prof. Rangone and indicate one or two preferred institutions or think tanks. Please attach a detailed CV (including the exams passed and marks) and the proposed period. If the professor feels the CV and the student profile fits well with the suggested institution or association, she will ask the internship administrator (Alfredo Ferrara) to candidate the student. Hereafter, the proceeding will be managed by the internship administrator.

Please take note that all eligible students will have the chance to perform an internship, but there will not have the right to be selected by the preferred organisation. When students are not selected within the organisation they have originally chosen, then the internship will be organised in the organisation selected as a second or third choice.  Moreover, the institution or think tank could suggest a different period for the  internship from what the student originally requested. This could be due to internal organisational problems: an intern needs due assistance and space for work.

The internship will last one month full time. However, the institution or think tank often ask best students to stay longer in order to acquire an adequate working experience. It  could also allow organising the timing differently (e.g. three months part time). It is up to the student to accept. 

Last but not least,  a student selected who declines the internship has no right to apply for another internship. It must be underlined that, while this behaviour could be personally justified, it impedes other students to be selected  for internships and could compromise the relationship with the interested institution or association.
