Theory put into Practice

The internship program fits in with Netspar’s objective of developing human capital in the field of pension research and practice. Internships (whether at the university or elsewhere) are therefore a compulsory part of the Netspar Tracks.

Students will write their MSc thesis based on their internship. During their internship, they gain valuable insight into the practical side of Netspar-related themes and will receive individual feedback on their progress at the Student Pension Day.
