Put Your Knowledge to Work
Add a 4-month internship program after you successfully complete your IDP certificate. An internship gives you an opportunity to put your skills, knowledge and experience to practical use. It also enables you to learn U.S. business practices and approaches in the most direct way.
After completing the internship, you have invaluable experience to include on your résumé. This experience is an advantage when you start a new career, return to your current position or apply to a graduate program.
Various companies make internships available to IDP students, providing a wide range of opportunities. To give you the most meaningful experience, your internship typically takes place in a small- to medium-size company. Participating companies represent a variety of industries, such as advertising, entertainment, finance and banking, health care, hospitality, international trade, marketing or public relations. Typical tasks in an internship may include creating a global stock presentation, redesigning a company’s website or establishing international contacts to build a client base.
