Global Experiences offers an award winning career development program for students to earn credit through the University of Utah for an internship abroad. GE has been sending university students abroad for internships since 2001, and has over 6,000 alumni, including fellow Swoops!
Less than 1% of recent graduates have international work experience, while the majority will have two - four domestic internships. An internship abroad helps you stand out to employers and proves you have the skills they're looking for. This program provides the chance to combine living and working abroad with gaining invaluable experience and something impressive to put on your resume.

I got placed at an awesome advertising agency on a marketing role involved in a lot of brand, client, and product research. My internship placement worked out perfectly and Global experiences know what they're doing when they are matching you up to a company. They always make sure you are receiving everything you are looking for so that it turns into a memorable and growing experience.
Another plus was the events that they put on for the interns. We received a welcome party to meet all the interns, multiple day trips, and an exit orientation at the Shard. I chose Global Experiences to help me along; I definitely think London is amazing and my experience could not have gone any better!
Michigan State University - Marketing - London, England
One of the best experiences. This internship was seriously worth every penny. I could have not picked a better location. Dublin is an amazing city with such rich history as well as modern flair. If you are trying to decide the best location, look into Dublin you will not be sorry. The town is fun and safe. I never once felt uneasy or scared. Global Experiences matched me with my DREAM internship. I learned such vital information and skills that will put me above my competition in the real world. Global Experiences is a great program and I could not recommend it more.
