We offer our Master students the opportunity of participating in a Summer School with some of our partner institutions (e.g., Hong-Kong Polytechnic, Nova School of Business & Economics, Stockholm Business School, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, Hanyang University, Ljubljana Faculty of Economics,...). Some non-partner institutions are also promoted, provided they enjoy an excellent reputation on the international scene. The activity is organized through the Skills Portfolio and students are granted 3 ECTS credits for attending.
Depending on the destination, the topics of the course range from business, to marketing, economics, arts and history, etc. Academic activities are usually combined with company visits and cultural activities.
Students are requested to attend the whole Summer School program (10 days min to 4 weeks max). At the end, a TOR is sent confirming the student investment and participation. Afterwards they have to write a report (discovery report, learning outcomes). Their feedback is very useful to promote the activity: so far, all participants have confirmed that the activity is unique, very enriching and fully “internationalizing”.
In order to help our students achieve their goal, we have offered substantial financial help during the first 4 years of the activity, through grants and discounts.
Over 3 years, 100% participants assessed the internationalization of the activity
at level 5 out of 5
I enjoyed these three weeks and it was a good choice to stay in Maastricht during the Summer School. It was a good decision to participate in the social program to make contact with other students. I want to motivate other students from Liege to participate in this kind of experience and to spend a part of their holiday abroad
This workshop brought me a unique experience that I would like to relive again because it was more than just academic learning, it was a life lesson. I am really grateful to have had the chance of participating in this program and I do not regret it at all.
I have learnt a lot during this Summer School portfolio. I am definitely glad to have attended this portfolio workshop. I would choose it again if I could.
During such an experience, time flies by and conclusion time always comes too quickly. Selecting this portfolio workshop was definitely a great decision since it enabled me to learn a lot and to make unforgettable memories.
I did not expect that this journey would be like an intensive Erasmus. I met some wonderful people there, who came from all around the world and if I had the opportunity to do it again, I would not hesitate to go back to Nova for another summer school due to the quality of program and the quality of cultural activities.
