Internships are an integral part of the MSFS education and our students’ preparation for a career in the international arena. Internships provide students with the opportunity to enhance their academic coursework; gain professional experience and insight into career opportunities; develop contacts in their field of interest; and explore the public, private, and/or non-profit sectors. MSFS students are required to have one internship at an internationally-focused organization during their course of study, but typically students intern one to two semesters and during the summer between their two years of study.

Internships can be:

  • for a semester or a year
  • paid, unpaid or for academic credit
  • 15-20 hours per week during the school year, full time during the summer
  • an opportunity for potential employers and employees to assess one another
  • a way to add a new dimension to course work and life while developing valuable skills
