What is a graduation assignment?

When you do a graduation assignment in the U.S., you will spend part of your time working on a project that is agreed upon between you, the company, and your university. In the U.S., companies are not as familiar with these assignments, therefore it is fairly common that you are expected to work most of your time in the company, much like an internship. The assignment is meant to be done as only a small percentage of your work time or completely on your own, depending on the company. On average, you may receive 20% of your work time for the project. Before you begin your assignment, we will provide a training plan that will outline your tasks. It is important to explain your assignment and internship needs during your interview with a Stage-USA representative.
