The Global Internship Initiatives engage students in leveraging their liberal arts skills for the global workplace. Anchored in Emory College's academic mission and integrated into curricular offerings, these high-impact opportunities encompass exploration of college to career pathways and create co-curricular frameworks for reflection. The Global Internships Program offers in-person, on-site placements in global cities worldwide. Please note: Due to COVID-19, all placements will be virtual for Summer 2021. The program provides a comprehensive experience including guaranteed internship placements, alumni mentorship, and embedded reflection through academic credit.
These initiatives housed within OISP seek to: (1) connect students with meaningful academic internships that align with their liberal arts majors; (2) create structured credit-bearing opportunities to translate liberal arts skills into workplace experiences; and (3) prepare students for the global workforce through enhanced cross-cultural competencies.

Aniqa Premjee C'20
Economics and Political Science Major; Economic Policy Concentration | Global Intern at Finance Startup in Singapore: "My internship experience helped me gain a deeper understanding of what I want to do in the future. I was able to test drive a career without having to make any serious commitments while also being able to further sharpen and hone the business skills I have already possessed and learned in my classes at Emory. Not only did it allow me to see what it would to be like to work in the business industry, it provided me with real life experiences, lessons, and tools that I need to get a full-time career in the finance field."
We hope to return to in-person, on-site global internship placements in Summer 2022. Emory's highest priority is student health and safety. We continue to monitor the COVID situation in each location.
