At ESAM, the internship periods in companies, from the first year of the Bachelor in International Management and the Bachelor of Law & Political Science, are considered as real springboards for the construction of a professional project and the definition of the first job.

The periods in the company represent real sources of inspiration and motivation. They provide students with the means to discover and invest in the business world.

This placement may not exceed 6 months or 924 hours per academic year (i.e. 132 days in the company), distributed according to the terms agreed in the agreement.


A trainee's bonus is an allowance that a company pays to its trainee at the end of each month. Although it is paid monthly, this sum does not have the character of a salary and is therefore subject to a separate legal regime in terms of the minimum amount and in terms of tax and social security.

The minimum remuneration applies only to traineeships lasting more than two months, whether consecutive or not, within the same organisation (company, administration, association, etc.) and during the same school or university year.

The law imposes a minimum hourly rate of 3.90 euros/hour, i.e. for a month consisting of 22 days worked, 600.6 euros.

Unlike work-study contracts, which expressly provide for the payment of tuition fees by the company, these remain the responsibility of the student in the case of an internship.
