A V.I.E.

Thanks to the V.I.E, International Volunteering in Business,you entrust a young graduate with a professional mission abroad for a flexible period of 6 to 24 months.

The missions entrusted to the volunteers –commercial, scientific or technical– are decided by the company. They are aimed at motivated and professionally trained candidates.

Why offer a LIFE to an Icam engineer?

  • International dimension strongly present in the training curriculum
  • Management skills and adaptability to different cultures through human training

The V.I.E formula is a good alternative to expatriation. On average, the annual cost of a V.I.E in Europe is 20,000 euros (excluding VAT) for the company (benefits and social insurance).

A company that has never used this formula can apply to benefit from it by contacting UBIFRANCE (through obtaining approval).
