BTS Intl’ Commerce : two internships, one big opportunity for your future professional career

The BTS CI requires the completion of two internships (that last 15 weeks in total).

In your first year, you will assume a commercial mission in a foreign company whatever its sector of activity (hotel, travel agency, automotive, …).

In your second year, the internship will be focused on export operations and procedures. You will learn how to export a product (it is not as simple as it seems).

This must be seen as an oustanding opportunity. Below are the reasons why :

  • Having work experience will allow you to learn what skills are needed to work in an international environment. You will also learn about the day-to-day operations of a company and how it is organized and managed.
  • Employers will seek to hire students with significant work experience. Internships will strengthen your skills. So the more experience you have the more likely you will get a good job.
  • You will have the opportunity to discover a sector of activity and you will be able to see if this sector of activity is right for you. For instance, a student who has interned in a hotel may conclude that he wants to get a job in the hotel industry.
  • Internships help you apply what you have learned in the classroom.
  • Internships may also provide you with networking connections for a future job (it depends on your performance). If your internship has been successful, the company may want to hire you and give you a good position.
  • As the 10-week internship of the first year has to be done abroad (most likely in an English-speaking environment), it will allow you to improve your skills in English (especially in spoken English). Most of our students do their internship in Suriname (the official language is Dutch but the language used for business is English) or in Europe (English is the official language).

We, the teaching team, strive to make the internship as fruitful as possible. That’s why we ask our students to fill in the following form in order to know if they are satisfied with their internship.

We also want to build strong partnerships with the companies in which our students have interned. This is the reason why we propose to supervisors to fill in a form to know more about how the intern has performed within the company.

This evaluation process is critical to the success of the internships. It will entice students to do their best and it will make them more efficient and satisfied.
