Appointment

With my own personal study coach.

Appointment

During your time at International Communication Management you will be assigned a personal study coach. Where possible, a single study coach is assigned for the full duration of the four-year programme. In this way, the study coach is able to establish a close relationship with the student. The study coach tracks the developmental progress of a student and is close at hand to offer constructive advice and support.

The study coach is available to assist students with any study-related problems. He or she offers general support throughout the programme and can refer students to a range of specialist advisors if and when necessary. The study coach is there to facilitate personal reflection, to motivate students, and to prepare them for their graduation. The ability to self-reflect is essential for gaining a realistic insight into one’s natural strengths and weaknesses. Part of the study coach’s role involves discussing a future career plan that will fit the talents and aspirations of the individual student.

Feedback assignment

How to deal with Dutch directness.

Feedback assignment

In an intercultural classroom some (Western) cultures are used to be being bold and blunt in their feedback. This, however, doesn’t mean that they criticise you personally. They only provide feedback on your work or ideas in a more direct and blunt way than you might be used to. In Dutch culture, honesty and directness are valued highly while in other cultures saving face and not embarrassing others is more important.

In this short assignment you can experience what kind of situations you may face. Just remember: compliments for good work are also very common!

Internship

Eva shows a day at her internship!

Internship

In the 3rd year of ICM, students have the opportunity to apply to companies of their choice and complete a 6 month internship.

One of the internship assignments is to create a company video that shows what makes the company special and why future interns should choose this organization. You can have a lot of fun with it but of course there’s also some criteria to follow. For example, students must show the international / intercultural component of their internship at this organisation. The video shows the culture of the organization and should answer future intern's questions whether this is organisation a good match for them. Check out this video made by an ICM student who interned for the Social Hub!
