Internship Program

Since 2002 and consistent with our purpose and values, AcademyGlobal has offered internships annually to high potential future leaders from leading University business schools. Without exception our interns have gone on to build exciting careers in a range of industries right around the world. These talented young people are now found to be residing throughout Europe, North America and South East Asia (as well as Australia). Please read some of their comments about their experience with AG below.

“The past months of my internship at AcademyGlobal have been very instructive for me. I gained a lot of experience, especially in the fields of risk management and finance. I not only consolidated my knowledge of accounting and financial concepts by putting them in to practice, but also developed and gained new skills particularly relevant for working with a small to medium business. Working with AG, which involved working within a wider dynamic group of educational facilitators, has importantly enabled me to combine and collectively develop my range of skills alongside my ideal career path and interests. Through my internship, I learnt that I am more interested in the quantitative aspects of finance as opposed to providing research and advice, and therefore have enhanced my perception of a career in trading or investment banking. I would highly recommend an AG internship to everyone.”

“I would like to start off by saying that I could not have asked for a better internship experience. Over the past few months I feel like I have gained so much experience and real world wisdom. The internship was varied. I believe that this internship was successful in furthering my knowledge of a career in the field of finance. I saw the pressure of deadlines, importance of appearance, the value of being a self-motivator and the joy of loving your job. Also, I appreciate having colleagues who were very approachable during the internship, and who took time to explain the organisation structure of the board as well as share their experiences and knowledge with me. In conclusion, I can testify that this internship gave me a lot of new experience and I would recommend a AG internship to everyone!”

AcademyGlobal has broadened my understanding of the business world in general and has given me a strong foundation and valuable experience for my future career. The internship was a valuable resource and real world experience. One of the greatest benefits that I have received is the knowledge that I actually enjoy doing what it is I have been studying for.”

“During my internship at AG I learned much about utilising the internet and technology for marketing. The thing that I like the most from AG internship program is that it is very practical and down to earth hence can be applied directly to my own daily activities both as a student in college and as a co-worker in the office.
