You will have the opportunity to apply your skills by completing your academic year with an internship in an outdoor sports company.

Through the OSV network, you will have access to a variety of contacts, ranging from family-owned companies to world-renowned brands. In past years, students were recruited for internships in companies such as Rossignol, adidas, Snowleader, Columbia, Salewa, Eider, Mavic, Dynafit, Salomon, Woodstock, Faction Skis, etc.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in the OSV Internship Forum. This key meeting will provide you the chance to speak face-to-face with managers and executives from outdoor sport companies large and small, and to gain crucial interview experience as well as to identify those companies that interest you for a potential internship.

You can either choose to stay in France or gain international experience by working abroad. At the end of the internship, you will be graded on a written report and an oral presentation. 


After completing the program, you will be able to target sales positions in large international sports and outdoor companies and local brands as head of export sales, regional sales manager, retail manager, head of international distribution, sales agent, etc.
