So you can gain practical experience working with successful companies, grow your network, and add weight to your resume. Find out more about our challenge-based curriculum.

Taking the Domestic Pathway for your internship means that as soon as you finish your core courses for the Master’s in International Business, you will have the opportunity to join a company for your entire summer term (12 weeks) to work on a professional assignment or project.
