Regarding internships applied to companies, students may carry them out in the organizations in which they are presenting their professional services or in other organizations of the student's free choice. In addition, a pool of companies interested in incorporating internship students for this master's degree will be set up. To pass this module, students will submit logs, activity records and a report from the awarded business tutor.

In company internships, incorporation into the organizations' own innovation teams is contemplated, or even the formation of teams of master's students together with staff from the organization to address the challenges of innovation or transformation proposed by the organizations.

Given the current pandemic situation and the uncertainty about the possibility of implementing this internship module, the possibility of offering a face-to-face week as an international experience for students is contemplated. This face-to-face week will be developed through the development of visits to virtual companies, and face-to-face if possible with on-site conferences for managers, with attendance at innovation work sessions and visits to business innovation centers. Said week will be an in-depth immersion in which students will work in person for 8 hours a day in conferences, workshops, visits to companies or product development. At the end of the face-to-face week, the students will present a report on the challenge or topic addressed in the week as a learning log.

This week will take place within the university for students who wish to attend in person and remotely (for international students who cannot attend in person as it will take place in 360º digitized facilities) and not in companies as a result of the rejection of the incorporation of outsiders in business facilities. Said week will consist, among others, of virtual visits, conferences, workshops, and a bootcamp for the development of products, services, and business models; concluding with the presentation of a report on the company that wishes to adhere to this format. Therefore, the adaptation to change and the incorporation of measures that guarantee the academic and practical quality of the degree.
