Understanding the world of business in a global context is essential for professional success, and a business internship abroad is the best way to both expand your horizons, and give you the essential skills to transition into the business world. Roles are diverse and will be tailored to your background and future goals. During your international internship, your tasks could include client relations, accounts administration, and database maintenance. They may also include compiling financial projections or filing and photocopying of office documents. As with all our internships, we encourage employers to keep "administrative tasks" to a minimum. Peruse our worldwide options for a better idea of specific opportunities.
Testimonials about Business
“I believe cultural competency is a growing asset in the global market. As technology is heightening and many areas in North America are growing more diverse, opportunities such as the internship provided by Global Experiences allows for one to gain insight on cultural dynamics while achieving practical experience.”
Overall, I found the program very rewarding. It gave me a unique opportunity to experience another culture from both a social and professional standpoint. Working in the city was a great opportunity for me as well as living in Sydney. I was able to see some great parts of Australia and meet many great people. The program takes you out of your comfort zone and allows you to develop skills that will benefit you in future endeavors when you return home. I would recommend going abroad to any student currently considering the option.
"I believe that my experience abroad will provide me with a competitive edge because I took the chance to go to another country to do an unpaid internship. That shows I have the initiative to adapt with the ever changing global employment market."
“IT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE AND TIME OF MY LIFE!!!!! I have gained so much guidance from doing an internship that I can now take back to college and apply in my current and future studies. I am completely motivated even more in life and in searching for a career path that works best for me! It was so incredibly valuable to do an internship abroad DURING my college study because now I am even more motivated to study and to pave [the] way for the career for which I will be most passionate. On a more personal note, the lessons I have learned and the bonds I have made from those I have become friends with during my time in Australia are the most important things I can take away from this experience! I would go back in a heartbeat!”
