About Global Experiences

    Why Global Experiences

    Who We Are

    Global Experiences is comprised of world travelers who are fortunate to have lived, worked, or studied overseas. Our travels have inspired us and shaped our lives, and our shared love for exploring new places and immersing ourselves in foreign cultures is why we all work here. Our team of 30+ spans 7 nationalities in 10 locations around the world.

    What We Believe

    Through our highly customized international internship and study abroad programs, we are able to encourage and inspire other young people to pack their bags, hop on a plane, and do as we’ve done. It’s our way of paying it forward. In today’s increasingly globalized economy, international experience is everything. Our programs provide the opportunity for participants to have the overseas adventure they want while simultaneously getting the experience they need. It’s the best of both worlds!

    How We Get There

    Every detail of our programs, from the employers we place with to the location of accommodations to the social events, is carefully selected based on our own experiences in and knowledge of our host locations. An internship should be hands-on, challenging, and eye-opening, right? And living abroad should be exhilarating and fun! We get that. We get that because we’ve lived it, and now we want you to live it, too. Couple our carefully curated programming with our award winning professional career coaching, and you have an international internship program unlike any other.

    Every person on our team has lived, studied, or taught abroad. Our staff not only loves and understands travel, but we truly want to create the best international internship experience possible for every participant. On average, each intern receives around 15 hours of one-on-one attention from members of our staff. We strive to provide our participants, university partners, host employers, and alumni with the best customer service and personalized support possible.

    Global Experiences has a strong network of over 4,000 alumni from 27 different countries around the world. Once an intern completes the internship they are part of a community that is filled with like-minded, globally engaged students and professionals. Alumni are encouraged to connect with each other, share their stories, job opportunities, and establish a fellowship of support.

    Mission Driven

    Global Experiences operates on six core values that we use as the standard we hold our partners, our participants, and ourselves to in every aspect of our business. We use business strategies for a social outcome. Our goal is to keep the best interest of our participants, partners, and employers as our top priority and provide the highest quality, personalized, and transparent international internship programs available today.
