Professional Opportunities 

A Professional Opportunity (PO) organized through LdM is essentially an unpaid internship and non-credited international learning experience at a local business, institution or association. The P.O. requires an average of 10 hours commitment per week and should not, under any circumstances, interfere with the students’ academic schedule.

It is a serious commitment and attendance is mandatory. Students are required to maintain professional behavior at all times. All scheduled meetings, tasks and deadlines must be respected. Upon completion of the PO, if the feedback from the host organization is positive, the student with receive a certificate of completion and will also be able to ask the on-site supervisor a letter of reference.

The completion of the P.O. will consist in working until the week before finals working half time during Midterms and not working during Spring Break.
