And what about a gap year?
The “gap year” is optional. It allows students to temporarily put their studies on hold in view of gaining personal or professional experience. It makes it possible for them to either go abroad on a university exchange or to gain significant experience in a company.
Generally, the gap year takes place between Master 1 and Master 2, but other possibilities are also available.
The IMT-BS Career Center will advise and support you every step of the way as you build your project.
