Internship Description

The Global Partners MBA (GPMBA) Internship Program aims to provide students with a full-time working experience to build and expand their international competencies. The cornerstone of the program revolves around students’ performance in a required international internship related to their field of expertise, while delivering a value-added service for the hosting organization. It is expected that the GPMBA candidates will be able to synergize their four-continent classroom experiences and program themes with on-the-job situations to perform successfully in unchartered territory. All GPMBA students are proficient in a minimum of two languages.

The internship duration is four months, beginning on or about August 1 and ending on or about November 30. It is not unusual for an internship to develop into a full-time employment offer. All internships must be approved in advance by the Director of the Global Partners MBA Program.
