How Business and Kronenburgh collaborate

In recent years, Kronenburgh has collaborated with many companies. Students are doing an internship and work along. Assignments are completed. The common conclusion is almost always: we have a win-win situation. A very valuable learning experience for the student. The company has temporarily had a few extra hands. By completing the assignments, the company has started thinking, new developments have been set in motion, steps forward have been made.

Collaborate / Project Support

At Kronenburgh we say: ‘See our intern, more like a temporary worker. You first have to train the candidate, but after that, you do get something in return. For our students, it is most instructive to actually cooperate rather than just walk with someone. Learning by doing is much more effective for both the company and the student.

BTEC 3 extended diploma / foundation / university preparation

Our BTEC 3 students are specifically trained for a position within the business community such as commercial employee, (international) junior account manager, business administrator, junior assistant accountant, (executive) secretary, office or management assistant, legal employee, (online) marketing employee, HR- employee, intermediary, assistant broker, team leader. Students should always be linked to an employee in this job area (someone who already does the work within the company).

BTEC 4-5 / HNC, HND, Top-up / Bachelor

In the first academic year (BTEC4 HNC), working in a project department is instructive. The student can be linked to a project leader. The student supports the project leader. The student will run a business project (Pearson set assignment).

In the second year the students prefer to work at a specialized department like Sales/Business, Marketing, Legal, Finance, Operations. They work along with other employees and also work on a business research project (Pearson set assignment).

In the third part of the bachelors programme (Top-up) student again work at a specialized department. They also do an in depth research project. Companies are welcome to suggest research questions.

Pearson set assignment

Our bachelor students receive 1 prescribed business assignment. This assignment is determined annually by Pearson for all BTEC HNC HND students worldwide. Therefore it is calles a set assignment. In 2020-2021 this was ‘Talent Management’. For 2021-2022 this is ‘Transformation in the Workspace’. In short, a topic relevant to every company. In the first year, the emphasis is more on project management. In the second year, the assignment takes on a more academic research character and the translation of the results and conclusions found within the company.

Advanced Business Project

In the third part of the bachelors programme, the student carries out a larger academic research. Here it is possible to respond explicitly to the wishes of the business community. The research assignment must then fit within one of the following or adjacent management areas: Global Business Environment, Business Strategy, Strategic Human Resource Management, Business Law, International Marketing Strategy, Business Finance. The research plan needs a ‘green light’ from the University of Essex.
