Gain international work experience and build your resume—from your laptop.

After your course, you'll be placed in a nine-week online internship with an international company based in another country. But online doesn't mean disengaged: expect daily collaboration with your fellow students, frequent check-ins with your manager, and high standards for results.

Integrated with your course.

Our internships don't require prior experience. That's because what you learn in class will connect directly with your internship project, so you'll be applying your new skills to create value.

Remote and highly collaborative.

You'll be working closely with other talented students to complete the deliverables for your project. By the end, you'll be a professional at using online tools to communicate, collaborate, and create—while having the flexibility to work from anywhere.

Continuously supported.

You'll meet frequently with your manager for check-ins, alignment, and feedback about your work. Your teaching team will be available throughout to support you with both subject matter and relationship management.

"The internship I had allowed me to work at a startup, giving me a huge project and the freedom to add a lot of value. I redesigned a company's entire website from scratch using my own designs, which was extremely rewarding to see at the end of only one month."

Tangible deliverables in just one semester.

We'll provide daily support to empower you to generate real-world value in a professional environment—and bolster your resume. (Note that companies and projects change from year-to-year.)

"Working at Invictus Capital was both challenging and exciting. I worked on a withdrawal smart contract that will ultimately allow people to interact with the blockchain in a different way. I learned so much in just a week and adjusted to the self motivated structure well."

"Using state-of-the-art technology we had the vital responsibility of relaying consumer feedback directly to the executive team at Feastfox, helping to prioritize new features and identify opportunities for growth. The nimble and close-knit culture at Feastfox was an awesome fit!"

Interned at SoundCloud

"The working environment was young, driven, and collaborative. Once a week, the teams came together to share their work and see how the product and our projects progressed on a large scale. Everyone was also really concerned about us having a good experience."

The future of work is remote.

Increasingly, companies value self-driven and organized employees who can demonstrate increased productivity outside the office.

Companies around the world and the US are offering opportunities to work remotely for their employees. Their biggest hesitation? A loss in productivity due to distraction or demotivation.

"We’ll never probably be the same. People who were reticent to work remotely will find that they really thrive that way. Managers who didn’t think they could manage teams that were remote will have a different perspective. I do think we won’t go back."

Remote Internship FAQs

What's an online internship like?

An online internship is just like an in-office internship, with the obvious exception that you will not be commuting into the office each day. Projects are specifically scoped to be the same in complexity, length, content and duration as an in-office internship, with the added benefit of a comprehensive support structure in the shape of daily check ins from your dedicated Teaching Team mentor, and frequent check ins from your company manager.

What will be my weekly schedule?

For few days every week, you will work on your internship project, in your internship team as well as individually. You will have regular check-ins on your progress on your internship project from your Teaching Team dedicated mentor, who will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have. Additionally, you will continue to have weekly classes in the virtual classroom with your Head Teachers, your Teaching Assistants and all your course classmates.

Your manager at your internship company will also check in with your team every week - together with your Teaching Team mentor - to answer questions you might have about your internship project, as well as to check on the direction that your project is taking, and brainstorm with your team any challenges you might be having.
