Applied Sciences, you will spend this semester in an international company (the internship) writing
your thesis and reflection report. In this thesis you will be advising your company on a complex
business issue. The graduation internship is the minimum 15-week period that you will spend
working on the business issue at the company. The IB graduation project consists of two
1. A graduation thesis, which will weigh 80% in your final mark and consists of a written
thesis and an oral defence.
2. A reflection report, which will weigh 20% in your final mark.
The aim of the graduation internship and its two deliverables is for you to demonstrate your ability
to solve a complex business issue in practice by applying the competencies you acquired during
your IB studies. Through this graduation project you will have the opportunity to showcase the
competencies you have acquired at ASIS and demonstrate that you are ready to graduate.
The IB Handbook (Chapter 6) provides the threshold for Graduation. The Graduation Guide provides
information on the organization of the graduation, assessment of the graduation, eligibility for the
graduation internship, role and task of the student and the supervision of the graduation internship.
