Every year many students complete their studies in Logistics via a company internship or graduation research.
After months of research, students come up with recommendations that companies can implement to improve their functioning. However, little is known to what extent to these recommendations are implemented by companies and their motivation to do so.
As follow up of an earlier pilot, BUas bundles forces in the Knowledge Distribution Centre Logistics (KennisDC Logistiek) with six other universities of applied sciences (Fontys Venlo, Hogeschool Rotterdam, Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen, Hogeschool Utrecht, Hogeschool Zeeland and NHL Stenden). The goal of the collaboration is to get an overview of the factors leading to the implementation of recommendations from graduation reports by logistic companies as well as the factors preventing this. The outcomes help students, companies, and the educational institutions to get more out of the internship programs.
