One of the top 5 experiences employers are seeking is an internship. Another is a study abroad experience. Why not combine these and do an international internship? Today’s economy is global and regardless of the field you are entering, we believe an international perspective is imperative to success. International internships can provide you with the opportunity to build a strong resume, develop cultural sensitivity, and build a global network—all while earning academic credit for your degree. Most internships do not require language fluency and will be customized to meet your personal goals.

  • Gain a competitive edge in the job market
  • Grow your career network
