These virtual opportunities are not meant to take the place of a physical abroad experience however they offer valuable academic and intercultural experiences and exposure to cross-cultural competencies.  In the midst of the current pandemic, more and more companies are operating remotely around the world. A virtual global internship offers students the opportunity of professional experiences and development in a remote work setting as well as exposure to the cultural differences in how companies operate and how they have embraced remote operations around the world.

Explore the following opportunities and contact an education abroad advisor with any questions:
