Internship Experience Abroad

Internships abroad provide students with an excellent experience in learning an international culture while expanding their professional career. Working in another country allows students to gain a deeper understanding of how globalization is developing in the business world. Students can gain international experience and also fulfill their internship requirement at the same time. Students often find summer to be the most convenient time to go abroad for an internship.

There are many ways to find an international internship. Some students use their personal connections. Others find positions listed on Handshake. It is important to remember that because of visa requirements, international internships are often unpaid positions.

When you use an internship-placement company, you pay a fee directly to the placement company that finds you an internship in your field of study. Often these companies help students obtain their visas, find a place to live, find transportation to/from the airport, and more. Many of our students have used companies like The Intern Group in the past. To see a list of placement companies that JSOM students have used in the past, contact or use our internship interest form and we will contact you.

Be Advised: Once you are hired for an international internship, you MUST report it to UT Dallas Handshake and the Comets Abroad Portal!
