What is GOLDEN?

What is the internship about?
The Program offers a broad and deep involvement in managerial and strategy research, with particular focus on sustainability. Students will be required to work individually and in a team on research activities that aim to map sustainability strategies of firms across several countries and industries. In particular, interns will be required to systematically analyse firms’ sustainability reports to understand what actions firms put in place to improve their sustainability performance.

Next to this, students will regularly be asked to assist with the research conducted by ICRIOS, in particular with the following tasks:

-        Develop inter-and intra- sectorial analyses
-        Prepare and give presentations
-        Create research reports
-        Improve the methodology to understand the sustainability actions that firms are undertaking.

During the internship, students will be able to 
-        Improve their analytical skills
-        Develop the ability to translate sustainability insights into sustainability strategies, one of the prerequisites currently required by most enterprises.
-        Improve their capabilities to order and present data and findings

Students can get the following additional benefits:
