Program benefits

Professional experience

In today’s competitive job market, students and young professionals have to find ways to differentiate themselves from their peers. The career benefits of an international internship are essential for young people seeking to advance their professional futures.

After completing our international internship program, your son or daughter will have had international exposure in a globalized world and professional experience from a high-quality international internship. They will have simultaneously accumulated a high-value network of international business contacts, benefited from a personalized career coaching session with an Alumni Success Coach, and have practiced their skills in a different language (if applicable). We also can help students earn academic credit for our program, whether from their own institution or from Florida A&M University, our school of record.

Personal growth

An internship abroad will give your son or daughter a better sense of cultural understanding. They will be able to bring cross-cultural communication skills to future roles, and their experience abroad will make for memorable interview talking points, enabling them to stand out from the crowd.

While living far from home, they will also gain a better sense of independence, while learning more about themselves in a foreign setting. They’ll get to see the world firsthand while enhancing their resume or CV.

An international network

Our program participants come from all over the world, so participants expand their networks by making friends from across the globe. Thousands of our alumni from across the globe have been invited to join our alumni network on Linkedin. This is a great way for our past participants to keep in touch and network when their own workplaces are hiring.

In addition to the new group of international friends they will make on the program, participants also benefit from an expanded international network in their career field, from their internship supervisor, to colleagues in their host company, to the other interns they meet in the program.
