+ - Why an International Internship?

Studies show that students with proven job skills and related work experience gained from internships are valuable assets to employers on a resume and can even lead to a higher starting salary. Moreover, three of the top personal qualities employers seek are communication skills, leadership, and teamwork, all of which can be developed during an internship.

These summer international internships can increase your understanding of a chosen field, enhance your academic experience, expand your network, and provide you with a new perspective beyond the classroom.
