Virtual Global Internships

  

This experience is designed to immerse students in a multicultural professional space through virtual means. A special effort is placed on helping students develop the skills required to enter the professional world and navigate cross-cultural entrepreneurial environments. This hands-on experience is complemented by an academic component, which guides students through the experience and helps them strategically reflect on challenges, accomplishments, and personal and professional development. Students are intentionally placed based on interests and skillsets in organizations in France, Spain, and other European countries with the aim to build their professional network through industry-specific training.  While fluency in French/Spanish is not required, some placements may require some knowledge of French/Spanish while others may require more advanced levels.  The 3-credit internship placement is 120 hours accompanied by academic, professional development and evaluative components. Further, in addition to students' placement hours, they will participate in a series of interviews with the Internship Coordinator and Company Supervisor, weekly seminars directed by the IAU Internship Coordinator and Company Supervisor, submit written reports and reflective assignments on their internship experience, and follow through on any other assessment and evaluation methods given by the company.
