Milan Internships Overview

    The dynamic city of Milan is fast-paced, full of ideas, money, fashion, food and glamor. If you’re seeking an exciting internship that will dive deep into the world of fashion business, tourism, advertising, and sports management, a Global Experiences Internship in the capitol of Lombardy is what you’re looking for. Simply put, Milan is to Italy as New York City is to America. It’s the driving force of Italian design, business and finance. Constantly looking towards the future, Milan is where ideas are cultivated, and revolutionary trends are created. In 2015 Milan will host the World’s Expo. With a focus on energy and food sustainability, the Expo will offer Global Experiences Interns an exciting opportunity to potentially immerse themselves in a number of unique fields and industries at the forefront of the globalized economy. In terms of international internship locations, Milan is a great differentiating choice for your resume, as you learn to work in the Italian business culture, develop language skills and make connections in one of the world’s great global business cities.

    Global Experiences Milan offers three unique opportunities for internships in Milan. The 8-week Summer Program and 12-week Fall/Spring programs are constructed to work within all of our interns’ busy schedules. Each provide interns with language training upon arrival, and innovative opportunities for interactive internships. GE Interns in Milan live in centrally located student apartments which offer accessibility to all the excitement the city has to offer. With a multitude of transportation options throughout the city, Interns will find it easy to navigate the sprawling urban landscape from Global Experiences main housing location. For students requiring an internship credit at their university, a Global Experiences Internship can be used to fulfill this.

    About Milan

    The capitol of Lombardy, Milan is unique for its combination of a rich history that’s directly impacted the cultural trends that shape the modern world. A former Roman colony, Milan rose through the Renaissance to become one of the architectural hotspots of the Western World. Home to the Milan Cathedral, perhaps the most important example of Gothic Architecture in all of Italy, it’s a city that’s long influenced the cultural trends of its neighbors. As the center of industry during WWII it also suffered lots of bombing and much of the city’s beautiful buildings were destroyed. Today, modern skyscrapers compete with Gothic masterpieces, each of which stand in awe of the Alps that loom in the distance (on a clear day). In the 1950’s a Fashion revolution emerged from Milan, one that continues to this day. The city is the world’s fashion design and business Zeitgeist. Home to Armani, Versace, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana, Milan is the cutting edge when it comes to fashion, and a must for fashion interns globally.

    Beyond fashion, Milan is renowned for its international sporting fame. It’s home to AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano, two of the world’s most famous Football Teams. Thanks to the ongoing success of AC Milan in the European Champions League, the city shares the distinguished honor with Madrid as the most celebrated in European Cup history. Milan has hosted the World Cup twice, in 1934 and 1990, further solidifying its critical importance for modern European culture. In terms of its cuisine, Milan is almost completely unique to the Italian stereotype in its preference for rice over pasta, and butter over olive oil. Due to its northern location in the foothills of the Alps, the cuisine is dominated by breaded cutlets, cassouela, ossobuco, and risotto. Heartier than its southern brethren, one is unlikely to find any fish or tomatoes used in its dishes.

    What to expect from the Milan Internship Program

    Offering an array of exciting opportunities for internships in fashion, advertising, hospitality and sports management. Following acceptance, all of our interns are given extensive one-on-one Career Services training to best prepare them for their internship.

    Caroline T.
    University of Colorado - Boulder / Architecture
    Coming to a different country has been extremely eye-opening and a rewarding experience. Before GE, Italy was not a place I would have ever considered living in because of the language barrier, but this adventure taught me how to overcome that and be more driven.
    Zara
    Fashion / University of Missouri-Columbia
    This experience has made me realize that the world is very large and there are endless opportunities for work experience out there that could be exactly what you are looking for. This experience has made me realize that a career after college is not limited to working in the US.
    Madeline K.
    Communications and Environmental Studies / Salisbury
    I gave me more confidence as a designer by seeing how a real designer works, specially a Designer who has shown in Vogue in Milan! It also changed my aesthetic as a designer, it showed me a whole new perspective of beauty and help me matured as an artist.
    Mariana L.
    Fashion Design / Art Institute of San Antonio
    I have grown from this experience in so many ways. It has helped me with my problem solving skills (ie. dealing with uncomfortable situations in a different country where there are language boundaries) and remaining positive in difficult situations that I can not control. I have grown culturally as well; although my family is Italian, living in the country for an extended amount of time has allowed my appreciation to grow. I have also had to prioritize and make the most of my time here. Overall, I had an extremely enjoyable experience in Milan that will stay with me in my personal and professional life.
