Internships will be remote placements with companies based in Australia, Canada, England, India, Japan, South Africa, or the U.S. (New York or the San Francisco Bay Area).

The Global Virtual Internship Team Projects is a great way for students to work with a team of three to five students to deliver a consulting project to a global employer. Students will gain knowledge of their industry of interest as well as build on their teamwork, applied research and data synthesis skills. The Global Virtual Internship Team Projects will allow for students to build relationships through various professional events and cultural activities such as career learning and professional connections, cooking lessons, city and country special events like front row seats to sports events. Past internship opportunities have included marketing and PR firms, human rights and environmental NGOs, start-up companies and more.
