An internship is nowadays a good way for a young graduate to enter the world of work, an environment that is increasingly difficult to deal with and scale, due to the current situation that directly affects countries' economies. Most universities offer the possibility for their students, undergraduates or not, to undertake an internship experience during the course of study. Students take up this opportunity to a large extent, 57.6% in Italy did this activity in 2020, as it emerges from the studies; they perceive the importance that this can have once their university career is over and it is interesting to see at the same time, how this can correlate with teaching. In the following thesis work, an analysis of the internship programme of the Politecnico di Torino will be carried out, in particular for the Bachelor and Master’s degree courses in Management Engineering. After a first overview of the students of the above-mentioned courses, the role of practical traineeship in the career of each student will be investigated. In addition, in order to study the relationship between final grade and different variables characterizing the students, such as gender, age, being a trainee or not, etc., several statistical tests and linear regression analysis will be performed. The results of study suggest that for bachelor graduates, the academic career (grades and years at graduation) is negatively correlated to the internship. Regarding the master's degree graduates, on the other hand, there seems to be no difference between the two groups, trainees and non-trainees, and a positive correlation between final degree grade and participation in the programme can be appreciated, although other factors considered better explain the grade.
