Internships

The international business major and IB cohort programs offer students a competitive set of skills and global competencies that prepare them for any industry. Our uniquely trained undergraduates have attracted the attention of many international and multinational corporations and organizations for close to two decades.

International Business of the Americas (IBA) Internships:

2012 marked the launch of the IBA program. We're looking forward to the great business opportunities our partnership with the Universidad de Chile will open for both our students and theirs alike. Please peruse the experiences and internships listed above, which demonstrate just a sample of the positions our incredible International Business students have completed. We anticipate the IBA program will open similar positions to our cohort members and create a network of business leaders who will contribute to the prosperity of the Americas over the course of their careers.
