Writing history: The first ten B360 internships in 2017

Never since we started the B360 internship program has there been a larger group of interns than in the period between February and April 2017. Credit Suisse contracted nine students. Mediaschneider again offered an internship to a student of Mass Communication from Zambia.

Armas, Daniel, Emma, Kristof, Helena and Vaino are studying at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST), the Zambians Getrude, Isaac and Rute at the University of Zambia (UNZA), and Lundi Mkosi at the Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) in Cape Town.

B360 excursion to Einsiedeln

On the first Saturday after arrival, a trip to Einsiedeln including a visit to the monastery was on the program. None of the interns had seen snow before, reason enough for extensive foto sessions and snowball fights.

The work in the various teams was intense and demanding. We are happy to report that all internships went well. We could rely on the professional and dedicated support by the teams in the companies. And the host families again did a wonderful job at taking comprehensive and loving care of the students. They play a key role in our internship program and are a great support for our interns in Switzerland.

Nervousness before the start of the presentation

With great support from Catharina Kreysel, the interns prepared thoroughly for the great presentation towards the end of the internship period. They presented to their mentors and B360 Volunteers what they had learnt and experienced during their time in Switzerland.

They summed up their experiences in a few sentences …

… and held in their hands the term most to-the-point for their internship.

The interns danced and sang …


... and the relief was great after the successful presentation.

We wish to give our heartfelt thanks to all our partners for the fantastic support and the valuably invested time.
