The OIC International Student Internship Programme (OIC-ISIP) is a special international internship programme developed under the OIC-VET Programme and operated under the International Business Forum (IBF) hosted by Independent Industrialists and Businessmen's Association (MÜSİAD).
It basically aims to enhance the quality of workforce employed in OIC Member Countries and strengthen integrity and convergence of labour markets, and promote competitiveness of OIC economies through increasing knowledge and skills of university students about to enter into the labour market.
The cooperation project of the OIC-ISIP Programme was accomplished in the summer 2010 in collaboration with two NGOs, namely the Independent Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (MÜSİAD) and Bab-ı Alem International Student Association.
MÜSİAD is one of the largest Turkish NGOs operating in the area of industry and business with 28 branches and more than 3000 members associated with 90 contact points in 40 different countries since its inception in 1990. MÜSİAD assumed the rare status of “Association for Public Good” in 2005. It organises the International Business Forum every year parallel to the ordinary COMCEC sessions as voluntarily-based, non-governmental platform for gathering of Muslim business people from all over the globe where they try to stimulate trade, investment and co-operation.
Bab-ı Alem International Student Association is an active NGO that provides free counselling and advisory services for the university students coming to pursue their study in Turkey since 2004. In addition to its normal services, Bab-ı Alem organises many seminars and workshops; international social, cultural and sports events; and various contests in order to encourage the spirit of friendship and brotherhood among the students.
